When Fraser Met Billy

Cover: 'When Fraser Met Billy'

Staff Review: "When Fraser Met Billy" by Louise Booth


This is a true story about a struggling family, their autistic son, Fraser and a special gray shelter cat named Billy who brought them love, happiness and hope. With Billy in his life, gradually Fraser had less tantrums, was less anxious about changes, and less moody. Also diagnosed with hypotonia, a muscle condition, Billy also helped him learn to climb stairs and develop his muscles. This is a heartwarming story about the power of a pet to transform human lives with unconditional love and understanding. Anyone who knows or loves someone with autism, or who loves cat or animal stories will enjoy reading this.
