I believe pet therapy is a big part of wellness. Picture here are our cat, Chuck Bass, and me after my Remicade infusion last week. I am typically fatigued after my infusion and always take a half day off from working to return home and nap. This cat is all too glad to make sure I am comfortable, warm and get enough snuggles. It is a good thing to come home to. Studies show that cats assist patients by helping to lower blood pressure, decrease anxiety, and decrease depression.
