How love of Billy the stray cat has finally brought four-year-old autistic boy out of his shell. Billy has made a complete difference to the family home, bringing happiness and an air of calm. The four-year-old, who is autistic, easily became overwhelmed by everyday events, resulting in tears and temper tantrums.
Then Billy the stray cat came along. Abandoned by his previous owner and rescued from a boarded-up council house by a charity, he had not had the easiest start to life.
