  • Six Truths about the Effects Cats Have on Our Lives

    03/12/2021 Duration: 12min

    Hey, it’s Amy Newmark with your Chicken Soup for the Soul and today I want to share six stories from our book about clever, curious, caring cats and talk about the effects cats have on our lives. Because they do have an impact. Somehow, they brighten our days, act as our therapists, and become our best friends—without saying a word. They’re surprisingly clever, comically curious, and truly caring, too. They show us how to live in the moment, find our inner strength, and be the best versions of our human selves. If we rescued them, from a shelter or our back yards, they rescue us back. And their playfulness and antics make us smile, even on our darkest days.  Learn more about your ad choices.

This new collection really supports family caregivers, and we need lots of support, because it’s tough becoming the caregiver for an impaired spouse or parent. These stories will make you feel less alone and more empowered in your new role. I think one of most important things you can do if your family member has dementia is to learn to let go of your reality. You have to accept that your loved one has a new reality. There’s no point trying to correct an incorrect memory—you just go with it. Because what difference does it make anyway? Your role is to keep the conversation going, even if it’s not based on the true facts or history as you know them. And your role also is to live in the moment, learning how to sit back and enjoy the little things, which might just mean that you and your loved one spend half an hour discussing a
