Billy the cat was rescued from an abandoned house. Fraser was a two-year-old autistic child with a multitude of problems when he first met Billy at the cat protection shelter. Billy purred, laid his paws across Fraser, and they have been inseparable ever since. Slowly but surely, Billy has transformed Fraser's life. Fraser's mother Louise has watched her son move from being a child prone to anxiety, tantrums, and sudden emotional meltdowns to now a much calmer, less moody four-year-old whose future looks a lot brighter. In their home on the Balmoral Estate, Billy acts as Fraser's guardian--never leaving his side at mealtimes and bedtimes or whenever he's feeling low. Their profound bond has immeasurably improved their lives and the family's, and has brought them lots of hilarious and touching moments along the way. Like "A Street Cat Named Bob," this story will touch the hearts of all those who read it.
The way in which Billy the cat encourages his friend Fraser is just amazing. Truly inspiring. James Bowen, author of A STREET CAT NAMED BOB Heart-warming... No cat-lover will be surprised by the story of how a grey and white rescue cat called Billy wove his feline magic around Fraser... Billy's is one of quiet, enigmatic triumph. Even without the uplifting element of child-animal bonding, I would feel humbled as well as educated by the human stories of what life with a child who is 'different' entails. Daily Mail
