Yes, it may be mostly ‘for the dog’s’ when it comes to service work for people with specific needs. But that doesn’t mean that cats can’t play such a role for people suffering from emotional or mental issues.

Cats (or any other type of animal) can indeed be considered an Emotional Support Animal (ESA). They too can provide love and emotional support to their owners in the same way dogs can. So, let’s explore this topic further.

Emotional Support Cat Requirements:

Have a cat or get a cat maybe by contacting your local ASPCA or Humane Society.

Make sure the therapist knows you do indeed need your cat to give you emotional support.

Get an ESA letter from a licensed therapist.

Contact your landlord and/or airline and provide your ESA letter.

************

It is generally true that cats can be more aloof than their canine counterparts. But that does not mean that cats won’t work as an ESA. You may just need to take more time when searching out the perfect candidate.

There are five specific tips on finding a great emotional support feline outlined in the Esadoctors.com link above.

Cats are truly awesome. They too can provide comfort support to those that need it most!

  3. Around this mobile park cats are always welcome.
    They keep the rodent population down. One cat can sometimes be seen going down the road with a mouse in it’s mouth.

      Thanks … Cats make excellent ESAs due to their size and their ability to bond to the caregivers. In terms of housing, they are clean, quiet, and non-intrusive. Personality, of course, is key. Cats can provide the same love, compassion and support as any other Emotional Support Animal.

      There is a EMA registry for cats.
