Studies have shown that cat owners, especially senior citizens, who have cats have lower blood
pressure and can live longer than humans who don't own pets. Could our cat's purring also help heal us? Certainly more research needs to be completed to fully illuminate the mystery of the magical purr and to find all of the benefits of the purr. But until then I'll keep my cats happy and purring. I think of my cats as my Prozac - the 'happy pill'. They're the best relax and stress releive for me and all my problems dessapear when they purr me to sleep.
