Lorcan Dillon was seven years old when his mother, Jayne, first heard him say 'I love you.' The words were not directed at her, but at Jessi-cat, the family pet. Lorcan suffers from autism and selective mutism, a condition that renders him unable to speak in certain situations, unable to express emotions or enjoy hugs and he has never told anyone he loves them. This all began to change with the arrival of a kitten named Jessi-cat. 'Jessi-cat' is the stirring tale of how the affection and attention of a constant loving companion allowed a little boy to start to connect to the world around him.

A heart warming book about the relationship between Lorcan, a boy with selective mutism( he will only speak to certain people) and his cat. The book is interesting on a number of levels. As well as looking at how the cat helps the Lorcan to speak , it also looks at the way in which the family has to fight to get Lorcan the help he needs with his selective mutism and autism.
