Every cat owner knows they like having a cat around than not having a cat around, but this feeling has always been subjective. Now scientists have objective scientific evidence that having a cat around can actually be beneficial.
If you’re worried about your carbon footprint, owning a cat requires less resources than owning a dog. If you’re going through stressful periods in life, cats act as a social support system. Instead of crying on a friend’s shoulder, you can cry to your cat and your cat will never tell a soul.
If cats are so good for your health, perhaps everyone who wants a cat should get one and get their health care system to pay for the cat’s expenses.
