We have a neighbor who keeps around 30-40 cats and dogs in her house. She even has separate rooms for them. It really stinks and hence, I avoid visiting their house often. Before stumbling upon this infographic. I thought the idea to be very weird that that lady, crazy!
However, according to today’s infographic, our feline friends help us with much more than just emotional support. Cat purrs are supposed to contribute to our well-being. When a cat purrs within a range of 20-140 Hertz, nearby humans may be therapeutically benefiting from these vibrations. These include lowering stress, decreasing symptoms of Dyspnoea, lessening the chances of having a heart attack, and even strengthening bones.
Pet therapy is gaining popularity within many medical communities, and according to Animal Planet’s website, there is scientific research that suggests pet owners live longer than those without pets. That’s unbelievable! Isn’t that?
