NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Oddly enough, a cute animal with a broken limb can help kids face their fears.

Breaking a bone is no fun for a child, and when it’s time for the cast to go it can be scary since most doctors have to saw it off.

But a little empathy from cute animals could help tots brave through it according to Julia Segal, creator of AnimalsWithCasts.com.

The blog features photos of adorable animals wearing casts on their injuries, which Segal says is “so cute and so sad at the same time.”

She explains, “Someone from a pediatric ward asked to show kids the photos so they won’t be so scared about having a cast. If it makes them feel better, then great!”

Segal is glad to bring comfort to kids and hopes that the website also inspires people to donate to animal shelters.
