All pet owners know that pets provide emotional and physical health benefits, but how can you maximize the benefits of owning a cat? For many people, that answer is simple. Sleep with your cat at night.

Not surprisingly, being close to your cat can promote bonding while also lowering your stress and anxiety. Even better, a cat’s soothing purring can help put you to sleep faster than watching a political debate.

So sleep with your cat and make sure your cat gets most of the bed because taking over is what cats do best.
