Amazing Kitten Helps Artist Girl With Autism

Looking at little Iris Halmshaw’s photographs, you wouldn’t think that she was any different than any other 4-year-old little girl. And yet, she is. Iris is on the autism spectrum. The four-year-old girl rarely speaks and has great trouble with interacting with others, but expresses herself through movement and art.
Iris loves to paint. She does so with intense focus and concentration.
Since her diagnosis in 2012, witht he help of many experts, her parents were able to learn about how to help their daughter. Iris changed dramatically in just a short period of time. Although they still have a long way to go with her, they’re having more good days than bad ones. Aside from painting, spending time with her adorable guardian, Thula, a Maine Coon kitten helps her live life more fully.
Thula joins in with every activity, helping keep Iris interested and engaged. Iris’ mom, Arabella, describes Thula as a constant source of amusement and joy even on a grey day.

Check out Iris’ website to see more of her artwork or Follow the Little Miss Masterpiece and her best friend, Thula on Facebook.

step away from the crimping iron!!!

Actually, this photo makes me feel very nostalgic for the 80’s, lots of my goth friends carried their crimping irons everywhere with them, along with big cans of Aqua Net!
