The Good Things Pet Cats Bring
Cats Have Been a Part Of Every Family
Although dogs are supposedly "man's best friend," more homes have a cat or multiple cats in the United States. Be it poor, middle class or the super rich, people have cats for companionship in their home.
Cats become such a necessary part of a person's life, that they call themselves a cat person. Some are so addicted to having cats around, that they keep getting more and more. That's where the "crazy cat lady" stereotype comes from.
There's something so soothing about a purring cat on your lap that people are willing to overlook the independent nature of a cat and willingly become a cat person.
Read on for more benefits of having a fur person (aka a cat) in your life.
My cats are important to us. They ease stress and make us feel more relaxed.
Cats Are A Great Source Of Comfort
A cat can be entertaining as we entice it with a piece of twine but they also bring us a sense of comfort.
One study found that pets like cats are very helpful for the elderly. An older person might be lonely and just need some daily companionship..Having a cat enables you to touch, be touched and feel how it is to pamper someone.
Having a cat gives you a reason to get up in the morning and will cuddle up with you in bed at night.

Help Keep Us From Feeling Lonely
Animals, especially these cuddly and affectionate cats as pets also help us feel far from being lonely and bored. We could talk to them and express our deepest emotions, the words we could not tell to our fellow humans. Dogs and cats, also other animals, are now being trained and so they learn to do tricks and to entertain people. They are so playful and they could unravel the child in us. As a form of emotional outlet, they could ease stress and make us feel more relaxed.
There's just something about the way a cat feels when it falls asleep sitting on you... like melty sleepytime sunshine in a puddle!

Any Pet could Provide You With Positive Feelings
Every pet could provide you with different positive feelings. Birds and fish are so attention-catching. Looking at them would get you feel at peace without exerting too much effort. Staring at fish in an aquarium or pond gives one the peace of mind and the relaxation against a stressful time. These pets could also help you build the focus or concentration you need to start a task or the like.
Humor is the best medicine. Animals are great source of it. Having pets at home gives you free shows. Yes, just looking at them would make you feel fun. Their actions are animated; they act and move so funny without the risk of hurting other emotions unlike people-comedians.
It is undeniably true that pets are saviors; they stretch our lips to smile, stretch our patience, stretch our peace of mind and in the end, stretch the length of our lives. They give people relief and refuge. Having them around would give you a happier life and a happier life would be your ticket to a better self in and out a longer life ahead of you.
I was born a cat lover, and turned my mom into one, too (I was insistent about getting a cat and she finally gave in when I was two). I've had cats my entire life and can't imagine not having at least one, preferably more.— Alli

I miss my cats dearly! Hope the ex is giving them love and good care. What I loved about my cats was the unconditional love they gave me. Each and every day.— Julieann
I've always been a cat lover and have many cats in my life. They unequivocally have brought me lots of joy.
More Reasons to Have a Cat
Laurel Johnson from Washington KS - We used to be dog people but have changed to cat people in our senior years. Cats are easier to care for and do provide much entertainment and comfort.
Heather Bradford from Canada - I have had a cat-shaped hole in my heart for many years. Now that I finally have been able to get one again I feel so content. She's here with me as I type and we're best of friends and company. You're right, it completes a family.
SaraLynn LM - After having my precious little cat for 20 years.. she died a few years ago. At the time I didn't think I would ever be able to have another cat.
Then I realized there are a lot of kitties who need loving homes, so I went to the shelter and adopted another little sweetheart (2 years old). I can't imagine what I would do without her.. she is so sweet and brightens my life every single day.
Darcie French from Canada - It is so important for humans to care for animals; the therapeutic value is tremendous. For some people, their pets can literally be a reason to get up in the morning.
A Friend Explains Her Wish to Have a Cat
I really like them on the grounds that they are great for psychological reasons, can be fun, and make great companions to people in all sorts of different lifestyles.
I also find them interesting because of their historical accompaniment to human beings, such as in ancient Egypt where they were essentially idolized and worshiped like deities. Cats (like most domesticated animals) are really just excellent to have around.
I never had a pet growing up, and it is one of the few things I really wished I had at that age; especially considering the fact that I was more or less a lonely child. I could imagine a cat would have made growing up much more bearable. But, here I am now, 21 years old and in college. I hope to one day to invest in a pet for myself when I have my own house. Hopefully, more people, especially parents, see your page and take into consideration all the good that comes from owning a pet.
I love cats, At one time when I was much younger. I had twelve cats at once. I couldn't say no when someone was going to euthanize a precious animal for no reason other than inconvenience.— Nightbear
