Top 7 benefits of having pets in our MS life

Image courtesy of
I recently jotted up a post on about the benefits of having pets in our lives, specifically in our MS lives. Pets are truly wonderful as they help us cope, lift us from feelings of loneliness and depression and get us outside for a bit of sunshine and exercise. 

I’ve got a cat named Hans and he really makes a big difference, especially on the days I don’t feel good. He was my inspiration for the post, Woof, meow, tweet…the benefits of having pets in our MS life where I list the top 7 ways pets enrich our MS lives.

How about you? Do you have any stories about your pet(s)?



  1. Hi Christie, I love this blog, just found it on facebook some how. ms since 2011. lesions on my brain. way to many to count. I have been feeling fine until lately my brain has been feeling heavy. I usually just give it to God. Don't like to complain,I was on Tysabry until I couldn't afford it any more, I FELT FABULOUS on that. Now on Gilenya just have not felt the same. But new insurance so Tysabry is looking into a way to help us afford it again so prayers please! I drive and give some time to my Unity church. Brain fog keeps me from working.
    Why am I telling you all this? Don't know. Lets talk pets ! I have 2 Boston terriers ! They are hysterical King Arthur and Sir Lancelot! They are the joy in our home, they keep me busy during the day and warm our bed at night! That's me!Thanks for being here and sharing.

    1. Thanks so much for stopping by Cas. It's nice meeting you. I love, love Bostons! Every time I see one, a smile appears on my face. So glad they are a comfort to you. P.S. Biogen offers financial assistance for those of us on the big T. If you need help getting the info, just drop me a note via the contact form (right hand side of this blog post). Best to you, Christie
