“[These] illnesses have left me quite isolated and anxious about going outside and meeting new people. I don’t have many close friends these days because of this as not many people understand how it feels. Cody has changed that around though, ” she told the Dodo.
“I never really left the house before and now I make sure I do every single day,” Valentine said of her routine after rescuing the raccoon. “My boyfriend and I take Cody out together for a walk every day, and if I am feeling well enough, we go to visit our favorite shops together.”
“He has really changed my life around and I now have a reason to keep pushing forward every day … he is my life now and I love him to pieces.”
