Did you know that stroking a cat lowers blood pressure? Did you know that nurturing a cat increases your sense of well-being? Did you know that living with a cat staves off loneliness and provides amusement? All true. So, when the stresses of a world in turmoil or merely a bad day at work threaten to overwhelm you, help can be just a cat-in-the-lap away.
PAWS Place Adoption Center has a wide array of feline therapists ready to purr your troubles away, and June is Adopt-a-Shelter-Cat month. Come by for a dose of relaxation therapy today!
And if you're thinking about adopting a cat, consider taking two home. Cats require exercise, mental stimulation, and social interaction. Two cats can help provide this for each other as you go about your busy day. Plus they’ll provide even more benefits to you. Cats’ purring has been shown to soothe humans as well as themselves, and they have an uncanny ability to just make you smile.
You can also start your search at www.pawspaws.org Maybe you could help an older friend or family member adopt a cat for their wonderful companionship and relatively easier care. Lots of options, give it some thought.
