Let’s put cat ownership aside for a while, studies have shown that the act of watching cat videos on the internet is enough to induce positive emotions inside your body. So, imagine how much owning an actual cat would benefit you?
Let’s take a brief look at some of the biggest benefits of owning a cat.
You’ll Benefit The Environment
If you’re conscious about the environmental pollution and don’t want a pet that’ll further contribute to the contamination off the environment, then owing a cat might be a better choice than owning a cat.
The basic difference comes in the way the dogs and cats eat. The foods that a dog would eat increase his carbon footprint throughout the span of his life. One the other hand, a cat is more likely to eat fish than other types of foods, in this way, the carbon footprint of owning a cat is much smaller than of owning a dog.
They’ll Help You in Times of Need
No matter how happy our life is, at one point or the other, we are bound to face stress and difficulties in our life. Fortunately, cats have been shown to help people get out of the hardest times of their lives. You can use your cat as a social support animal in the time of need. Cats are better than humans when it comes to showing your emotions to someone. That is because they won’t respond or judge you.
Another noticeable benefit of owning a cat is that they can help you achieve a healthier heart. People who own cats are often relaxed and cope with stressful conditions easily. That is why they are less likely to develop heart diseases over an extended period of time.
Additionally you can socialize with other cat owners by joining a club like the Purr Cat Cafe Club, Bangkok.
