Jade & Trubs
"Jade & Trubs" portrays the sudden, life-changing bond between two beings with chronic conditions: Jade, an autistic child, and Trubs, the "unadoptable," chronically ill cat Jade's family rescues. From the moment their paths first crossed, Trubs intuitively sensed Jade's challenges. Once at home with Jade, he helped her with her anguish, especially at bedtime. Reflecting on the strong bond between Jade and Trubs, Jade's mom, Jessica, says, "As a parent of a special-needs child, you hope that they have a normal life. I never thought this would happen because of a shelter cat that no one else wanted."
