  2. Performing the task deep pressure therapy to help reduce my anxiety and prevent a panic attack
  3. Gus won the title of king at the local Paw-di-gra fundraiser for the animal shelter
  4. More feel pressure therapy. As you can see Gus often relaxes and goes to sleep while doing this task which is perfectly fine. Sometimes I ask him to stay this way for quite a significant length of time.
  5. We are struggling with separation anxiety. It's something we're working on.
  6. Being groomed by Brutus the cat
