One doctor in Maine is prescribing a Youtube video to people who come to him for help solving problems brought on by 2017. Dr. Feelgood says that the best way to get over 2017 is to watch a Youtube video of a rollerblading cat.

The public was skeptical at first, wondering why a video of a cat would lift people’s spirits.

“I believe that the best way to solve your problems is to avoid them since they cause distress, and instead look at something that will help you to de-stress,” Dr. Feelgood said.

Dr. Feelgood admitted that this may not be everybody’s cup of tea, so he has alternate prescriptions available for those allergic to cats and general cat haters.

“It doesn’t have to be a rollerblading cat; it can be any video that makes you happy. My personal suggestion is the rollerblading cat, as I have six little felines at my home that help me feel relaxed,” Dr. Feelgood said. “If you prefer dogs I recommend the Shiba Inu. They are the best of the good boys.”

We asked some people that went to see Dr. Feelgood about their experience with this treatment.

“I kept having nightmares about an orange man, but when I went home and watched the video, I was instantly relieved. This may just be what I need to get me through the rest of 2017,” one woman said.

One man went searching for answers from Dr. Feelgood. The answer he got was unexpected, to say the least.

“I went to Dr. Feelgood because I wanted to figure out how I could afford healthcare, he told me no one could, so I should just watch some cat video. At first I was like, ‘I don’t know man,’ but then I watched it. I feel better now,” the unnamed man said.

Even with the skepticism around Dr. Feelgood’s treatment beginning to subside, some people have developed a conspiracy that Dr. Feelgood made the videos and used hypnosis to convince his patients that they are fine.

After talking with Dr. Feelgood, we at The Scallion decided to watch the video that Dr. Feelgood described. The video was indeed very relaxing. We all feel very fine.
