6-year-old Iris struggled to come out of her shell until her mother introduced her to Thula, a Maine coon cat.

Iris, was diagnosed with autism in 2011 when she was 2-years-old. Her mother was exploring the idea of getting Iris a furry companion when she brought home Thula. When she did, Iris’ life began to change. Iris has become famous for her artwork, some of which has been purchased by Angelina Jolie.

Iris’ life has been transformed thanks her amazing relationship with a very special cat.

Here’s one of her paintings entitled Sea Elf:
