The Amazing Ways Cats Make People Happier And Healthier

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!

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!
