Cat owners will be happy to learn that, thanks to their furry pets, their health can be even better than it would be otherwise. Here are some health benefits that cats have on their owners.

Healthier Heart

According to a 2008 study done by the University of Minnesota researchers, cat owners have a lower risk of heart attack. Another study followed in 2009 that showed that this group also has a lower risk of stroke.

Lower Stress

Cats are famous for their mid-day naps and if their owner joins them, chances are they will be less stressed, more productive, and more creative.

Fighting Depression

Cats help their owners deal with depression, mostly because they demand a daily routine, responsibility for another live being, and much needed social activity.
