If you’re a cat parent, it’s no surprise to you that your kitty makes your life happier.
But did you know she can also make you healthier?
Oh, and there’s science to back it up!
The infographic below will show 22 ways your feline friend improves your life. Please share it with any of your friends who have been thinking of getting a cat but are still on the fence. This should be enough evidence-backed data to help them make the decision to adopt!
My favorite is number 3: watching cat videos is scientifically proven to reduce stress and anxiety.
First of all, how amazing is it that someone did a study on that?
Second, now when our boss catches us looking at cat videos during the day, we can legitimately call it a mental health exercise.
On the more serious side of things, cat parents are less likely to have strokes, high blood pressure, and heart attacks. Overall, cat parents are 40% less likely to die from cardiovascular diseases.
On the health front, cat parents typically go to the doctor less, too. If you put a price tag on that, estimates are showing that cat parents are saving health care systems billions of dollars!
Whatever your reasons for sharing your life with your kitty, now you’ve got the science (and this cute infographic) to back it up!
