A Cat Makes You Happier

Let’s consider some facts that are indisputable. There are more families that own dogs in the United States, than own cats. However, USA Today conducted a survey asking its readers how having a pet had improved the owner’s life. The response was over-whelming was that cats improved their owners’ lives to a greater extent than dogs. Below are the most popular and practical reasons why owners choose a cat over their canine counterparts:

  • Cats are independent and don’t require as much care as dogs.
  • Cats are entertaining to watch, even indoors.
  • Cats teach us and our children to be kinder, gentler souls, as they will not tolerate too rough handling the way a dog might.
  • Caring for a cat improves their morale.
  • Having a cat as part of the household helps validate us, especially for seniors who live alone.
  • The responsibility of cat ownership encourages us to take care of ourselves.
  • Research shows that purring can lower blood pressure and quiet a stressed-out brain.
  • The vibration of purring even helps bones heal faster.
