"I wanted to show that no matter what cards life deals us, there is always a way out, and it’s not suicide. There is always a reason to go on. And that if depression were to take on a human form, as in The Cat Lady, it would become both your best friend and your worst enemy…"

"When you’re on the bottom and your life keeps crumbling and falling to pieces everything changes. Your world is black and white, filled with sadness and despair… You wish you could do something, make it better, and that’s when you’d start holding on to the silliest of delusions, looking for excuses. It’s a trap anyone could fall into."
By Martin Mulrooney.
"I never suffered from depression myself... but I noticed it very quickly becomes one of the bigger problems of our century! And the worst thing about it is you can't see it. How is anyone gonna believe you? How will you prove that something wrong is happening to you?... You can't be even sure yourself that you're ill. The nature of depression is tricky, it will deceive you, it will make you think you can't be saved and the whole world would be better off without you. So yeah, it's nasty. And I watched it for a long time. Someone very close to me has it... and it sucks. It really does."
