Former U.S. Marine Robert Connell was reunited with his cat Hemi this week after four long years—according to Connell's wife Jennifer, the cat went looking for Robert during a deployment and never returned. Making matters worse, Connell says Hemi basically doubled as his therapist, someone who would calmly listen to him as he shared his feelings about suffering from PTSD. "Before I had kids, the only thing I could connect to was [this] cat," Connell said, "I never knew a cat would get attached to me, or [I'd] get attached to it."
