Confessions of an Emotional Support Cat!

Extracts from Esadoctors.com:

https://esadoctors.com/can-cats-emotional-support-animals/

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!

Are Goldfish Potentially Better Bloggers!

Source: Kevin Mcspadden:

You Now Have A Shorter Attention Span Than A Goldfish! TIME …

The average attention span for the notoriously ill-focused goldfish is nine seconds, but according to a new study from Microsoft Corp., people now generally lose concentration after eight seconds, highlighting the affects of an increasingly digitalized lifestyle on the brain.

Researchers in Canada surveyed 2,000 participants and studied the brain activity of 112 others using electroencephalograms (EEGs). Microsoft found that since the year 2000 (or about when the mobile revolution began) the average attention span dropped from 12 seconds to eight seconds.

“Heavy multi-screeners find it difficult to filter out irrelevant stimuli — they’re more easily distracted by multiple streams of media,” the report read.

On the positive side, the report says our ability to multitask has drastically improved in the mobile age.

Microsoft theorized that the changes were a result of the brain’s ability to adapt and change itself over time and a weaker attention span may be a side effect of evolving to a mobile Internet.

The survey also confirmed generational differences for mobile use; for example, 77% of people aged 18 to 24 responded “yes” when asked, “When nothing is occupying my attention, the first thing I do is reach for my phone,” compared with only 10% of those over the age of 65.

General Tso’s Fast Food Restaurant Not Near Yu!

General Tso’s chicken is s popular sweet deep-fried chicken dish that is served in North American Chinese restaurants. The dish is named after Zuo Zongtang (also romanized Tso Tsung-t’ang), a Qing dynasty statesman and military leader. However, there is no recorded connection to him nor is the dish known in Hunan, Zuo’s home province.

The dish is not found in Changsha, the capital of Hunan Province, or in Xiangyin County, where Zuo was born. Moreover, Zuo’s descendants in Xiangyin County, when interviewed, say that they never heard of such a dish.

What a Loser Was Albert Einstein!?

Albert Einstein today as a child would probably be on drugs diagnosed with ADHD or Autism!

He didn’t talk until 4.

His grandmother called him ‘thick’ or not very smart.

Repeated words and sentences over and over until he was 7.

Maybe had a form of autism.

Didn’t learn to read until 9 and didn’t like school.

He was disorganized, forgot things, his lectures were hard to follow – the classical ‘absent-minded’ professor.

He attended a Catholic elementary school in Munich until he was 12.

Dropped out of high school at 16.

Failed the entrance exam the first time he applied for college!

What a loser by today’s standards!

But still the greatest creative scientific mind in history!

Tickle My Neurons, Please!

A work of art, music, a majestic vista, a group of animals—tickle the neurons in our heads the most.

And recent research has shown that humor and laughter may be the healthiest things our brains can experience.

So boldly jest where no one has dared to rib-tickle before!

Embrace the absurb, inappropriate, and unusual …

Be different …

Draw a cartoon …

Think Out-of-the-Box …

Break wind in a crowded elevator …

Post a joke …

Exercise and stimulate your Humorocampus (?) to alleviate the cognitive symptoms of depression!

Yes!

Laugh, activate your brains, tickle your neurons, and enhance your well-bring!
