When you adopt a cat, you’re giving a deserving creature a loving home. But did you know that, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, owning a cat can provide you with several health benefits?
If you have anxiety or feel stressed, a cat might just be the magic solution! Spending time petting your cat can boost your production of serotonin, the good mood neurotransmitter, and reduce your cortisol, or stress hormone, levels.
Studies have shown that owning a cat can also decrease your risk of cardiovascular disease. Cat owners tend to have lower blood pressure and less stress than non-cat owners, so they are less likely to develop fatal heart conditions or have a stroke.
Cats can be good for your kids, too! There is evidence that children who spend the first years of their lives in a home with dogs or cats tend to be less likely to develop pet allergies, and allergies to other common irritants like grass or ragweed.
