Oscar has been my cat for about nine years (holy moley I just counted and double counted to make sure that was true! Time sure does fly. I still remember the day we brought him home). He is very much my security blanket. Whenever I'm having a bad day, I can just curl up next to him and he lets me pet him as he purrs and falls asleep. Sometimes we even take cat naps together. When he was younger he was a lot crazier and would run around the house and jump on the walls and attack people. Oh it was an adventure! But as the years progressed, he's mostly mellowed out. Mostly. He is my little miracle from God and I love him to death.
