Ben­e­fits Of Hav­ing A Cat

The People's Friend - - Short Story By Ewan Smith -

1. Keep­ing a pet, par­tic­u­larly in child­hood, can lower your chance of de­vel­op­ing asthma and al­ler­gies. 2. Stud­ies show reg­u­larly talk­ing to a cat can help you re­lax and lower blood pressure.

3. Stroking a cat trig­gers the re­lease of oxy­tocin (known as the “cud­dle hor­mone”) in the brain, which helps you feel more re­laxed and con­tent. 4. Cat own­ers tend to have more re­lax­ing life­styles, which makes them much less likely to have a heart at­tack or stroke.
