American Pie's Chris Klein may have publicly stated that his German Shepherd, Chief, helped him to get and stay clean, but he's certainly not the only sober person to call a four-legged friend a serious aid on the road to recovery. In her new Kindle Single, Animal Attraction, Fix Executive Editor Anna David writes that while she's "not going to claim my kitten made me see that I didn’t need to slowly kill myself anymore…a few weeks after this sweet little furball came into my life, I’d simply had enough of the late, jittery nights and realized I couldn’t bear the loneliness and depression I was living with any longer." David will be leading a hotly-anticipated video discussion about addiction, sobriety and pets over on the recovery social networking site In The Rooms tomorrow (Thursday), April 26 at 6 pm PST/9 pm EST. It's one not to miss: considering that ITR has—among the many groups on its site—over 13 pet-related ones, including Cat Lovers and Pug Addicts, the live video chat should be an animal-lover's paradise. But no catty comments allowed.
