Six cases of pets who saved a human from life threatening depression

Life is no picnic with tuna snacks and cocktails.
But sometimes life is really hard and you can feel like you want to literally disappear.
These are the times that you need that little spark of hope.
Friends can make a great difference in these dark times.
And sometimes no friendship is so pure as true friendship of an animal.
When an animal says you are worthy of love. They mean it with the purest honesty.


1. Cat saves veteran from life threatening PTSD.

When Josh returned home shell shocked from the sights of war he thought life was no longer such a nice option.
Fate however took a moment where Josh decided to light his last cigarette to send a kitten his way. The kitten brushed along his legs and purred heart warmingly. So Josh’s heart melted and he took care of this starving kitty.
Until one day the kitten never showed up…
Josh was lonely again but at least the kitten showed him he was worthy of love.
Feeling worthy of love Josh found a girl friend and also still missed having a cat in his life.
At the shelter he did not find a kitty. A kitty found him.
A familiar paw patted at him. It was the kitten he met before!
Josh and Scout were inseparable from then on and later became a family with the girl friend and her cats. Yeah, she had cats too. What a great match.

2. Jumper convinced not to jump to his death by reminding him of his love for his cat

There once was a guy who made some poor life decisions. Like stealing a car and getting caught. And then fleeing into a building where he threatened to jump from the third floor.
The police succeeded to stall him for hours, but it remained a standoff until they called in the aid of his cat.
Upon seeing his little best firend, the man decided that jail was still better than leaving his little best friend behind. He was granted a moment to cuddle the cat before he was arrested.
Hopefully the cat got visiting rights with tuna sacks.

Alex was in a real bad place. Her crippling depression caused her already two times to attempt taking her life. She lived on somehow but life gave her no joy.
Until she adopted a kitten who was given as a present to someone who didn’t want a cat. (seriously, never give people pets by surprise. That’s just irresponsible)
The kitten proved to be a lot of fluffy love and a great conversationist.
With the house filled with love. Alex’s life felt so much better.
Until Flemith was diagnosed with congenital peritoneal pericardial hernia. Without surgery he would have a very short life of maybe a week.
The world of these two friends seemed to collapse. Flemith would have a life that was way too short and Alex would lose her very best friend.
Happily, friendship was magic as friends who were aware of how much Flemith had done for Alex decided to fund the very expensive surgery.
The surgery was extensive, but Flemith recovered well with the loving care of Alex.
As far as known both are still living happily ever after and even sharing their surplus of love by growing into a family with a husband and little kiddy.

4. Good doggy saves big friendly giant from hanging himself.

Byron Glyn Taylor and Geo

Somewhere in 2015 life was so depressing for Byron that he made a noose from some sturdy rope and went looking for a good place to hang.
But his dog Geo decided he needed to steal that rope and shred it.
This time it was no game. Geo wouldn’t listen to his human and growled whenever Byron tried to take the rope back. Geo was usually a very obedient sweet good boi.
Byron took the hint and ofcourse when a doggy shows you this much love and concern, any reasonable human would understand how much that shows there are some really good things on this earth and that friendship truly is magic.
Byron went on to spread the lesson he learned from Geo and is still helping out humans and doggies wherever he can.
For Geo alas this was one of his last good deeds as shortly after saving his human he developed a lethal tumor. Currently Byron is also struggling with his health, but he still goes on living his live in a way that would undoubtedly make Geo proud.
These two made the world a better place already.

5.Sergeant helps cat with wounded paw, then the cat helps the sergeant endure the horrors of war.

While employed in Afghanistan a cat with a wounded paw came by Jesse’s camp.
The sergeant helped the cat with his wound and took care of him, naming the cat Koshka.
War is a terrible situation and the final straw broke when two of Jesse’s friend were killed in a suicide attack.
Jesse fell in a deep depression but Koshka wouldn’t let his best friend go through this alone. He gave the sergeant the special attention treatment and it helped Jesse to endure until he could return home.
Thankful to his furry friend he couldn’t bear to leave Koshka behind and smuggled him home with help from some other great heroes.


Dude! You only has one life!

6.Cat slaps some sense in his suicidal human

This anonymous redditor confessed about wanting to end it all.
While writing the good bye letter the cat slaps at the human’s legs and meows incessantly.
“Hey, hoomin! What the fluff are you doing? Snap out of it!”
This is a link to the whole story and it’s comments.


Whenever you feel so down that you have nothing to lose or that you are a burden. Think hard if you really have no glimmer of hope left.
If you really want to end life, just end life the way you were living it by changing your life. Friends can help you and/or find professional help. It’s the job of professionals to help you so make their life useful by calling for their help.
Remember that even the worst people in this world seem to deserve help and friendship, so why not you?
