Cats give more than just affection and dead mice to their owners. There are many benefits to owning a cat that isn’t visible on the surface.
Cats lower stress and will improve the moods of their owners. They also lower blood pressure and improve the immunity for the people around them. Cats also have the ability to help people recover faster from trauma, including resent surgery recipients and anyone suffering from mental illness, such as PTSD.
Mr. C said, “I am afraid of cats. I think they see spirits. They’re always jumping at things that aren’t there.”
Well, Mr. C, maybe the cats are protecting you from the spirits.
