Jack Dignam-Thomas is a veteran who suffers from PTSD. Good thing he has a caring companion: Elias, a Turkish Van, helped him in getting back to the real world.

For Jack, Elias is more than a pet because he serves as a vital link to the world when he experiences the pain caused by his sickness.

According to his wife Sally, “Jack can have good days and bad days. He either withdraws completely into himself and switches off.”.

That’s when Elias steps in. Because he’s very affectionate and loves attention, Elias helped Jack to recover and engage in his daily life once more. Check out what Elias got for helping his veteran human – He truly deserves an award!

We humans usually help and rescue cats, but when cats heal humans, that’s a different thing! Share this amazing video to your cat lover friends!
