5 Reasons Why You Should Have a Cat
It’s National Cat Day on October 29th!
Cats usually start their mornings climbing on your chest and pawing at your shoulders to demand attention. If you don’t budge, there’s a very good chance that they’ll just snuggle underneath the covers at your side. As they lay sprawled at your side, their reassuring presence will lull you back to sleep.
Although cats aren’t particularly good for your furniture, did you know that they’re great for your health?
What Are the Top Reasons Why You Should Have a Cat in Your Home?
If you’re someone who owns a feline fluffball, feel free to spend National Cat Day celebrating your fierce love for your dear pet. However, if you think that you’re a cat person but don’t have a cat yet, check out these top reasons why you should have one in your home:
1. Cats are great stress-relievers.
Your body produces brain chemicals such as cortisol and serotonin, which are directly associated with your mood and feelings. While cortisol is closely linked with stress, serotonin promotes feelings of happiness and well-being.
Studies show that spending a minimum of 15 minutes hanging out with your cat can cause your cortisol levels to decrease and your serotonin levels to rise. In other words, having a cat around the house will boost your mood and relieve your stress.
2. Cats can reduce your risk of heart disease.
Since cats can lower your levels of stress, they can help you reduce your chances of suffering a stroke or developing heart disease.
3. Cats can help you recover from trauma.
Did you know that cats are great for former military service members with PTSD and recovering surgery patients? Studies show that feline companionship calms them down and makes them feel much better.
4. Cats can help heal your bones, tendons, and muscles.
Did you know that a cat’s purring is linked to a therapeutic healing effect on the human body — specifically the bones, tendons, and muscles? When cats purr, they create vibrations that are at a frequency of about 20 to 120 HZ. Research proves that it only takes about 18 to 35 HZ to bring positive effects on a person’s joint mobility after suffering an injury.
5. Cats create less eco-footprint.
People who are concerned about their carbon footprint can attest that owning a cat is better for the environment than owning a dog. Experts say that dogs have the approximate carbon footprint of a Land Cruiser because of the types of resources that their owners use to feed them. On the other hand, since cats eat less and are more inclined toward eating fish than meat-flavored products, they have the approximate eco-footprint of a hatchback.
