The Psychological Benefits of Owning a Cat
LOWER STRESS AND ANXIETY
Petting or playing with your cat can release all the right chemicals in the brain. There is also evidence that a cat’s purr can help lower blood pressure and relax the nervous system.
They also help relieve stress and provide anti-anxiety benefits for their owners. Cats are generally low-maintenance pets, which means less stress for their owners, making them ideal pets for those who can’t deal with a pet’s rigorous care.
