Cats are an Excellent Source of Happiness

The Benefits of Bonding
By CatAge Staff

Quality time with your cat is good for both pet and human alike.

Research shows that petting a cat evens out human brain waves associated with depression and increases human brain waves associated with anxiety relief and positive feelings. After a mere 5 minutes of affection, your cat will experience lower blood pressure and positive neurochemical changes, as well.

I completely agree w/ the folks @ cat age.

How could the sight of my little squirrel, soaking up the sun, not make you feel happy?

Feeling blue? Go pet a kitty :) haha

Ohh this is fascinating. I wonder if these facts are the same with dogs? I really would love to get a dog, but I'm not sure where life will be taking me in the next few years so I'm trying to wait a little while.

I absolutely believe this is true. There's nothing like some kitty love to brighten up your day.
