ADHD Explained by Cats

Having ADHD isn’t easy…

Concernd Cat
I have these moments where I look around at all the things I’ve procrastinated on, and it freaks me out.
Procrastinating Cat
It doesn’t help that I tend to start projects and then drop them…
Disorganized Cat
…or that routine organizational tasks have a way of spiraling out of control.
Cat in Tree
Because of my impulsive symptoms, I get myself into situations that I didn’t anticipate…
Fierce Cat
…and I sometimes act on my emotions without thinking things through.
Cat With Ears
On top of that, I have to listen to people talk about how ADHD probably isn’t even “real.”
Playful Cat
On the bright side, I’m sometimes able to throw myself fully in and “hyperfocus” on tasks I find especially stimulating.
Cat on Road
Ultimately, whatever brain you’ve got, you just have to follow your own path…
Comfortable Cat
…and live your best life.
