Cats can make us healthier.
Do you know that spending just 15 minutes of quality time with your cat can be a great stress buster and improve your emotional and physical health?
There is scientific evidence. Time spent playing with your cats boosts your production of seratonin, a chemical in your body that increases feelings of well being. Quality time with your cats may also reduce the level of cortisol in your body, a hormone that’s maintained at abnormally high levels when there’s a chronic or continued presence of stressors in your life.
A 20 year study also found that people who owned a cat were 40% less likely to suffer a heart attack. (Source: Purina.com)
OK, that’s enough evidence for me!!!
