Wanted: Cat Lovers

Posted by Tamera Young on

I received a text message yesterday from ASPCA, the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, calling for people to adopt kittens and/or donations during the COVID-19 pandemic. June just happens to be Adopt-a-Cat Month and Adopt-a-Shelter-Cat Month, according to Dogtipper.com.

I don't own a cat but I thought it would be worth spreading the word of the need to adopt cats, especially at this season, a season where kittens are bred most.

6 Benefits to owning a cat:

  1. Cats help your heart. Cats lower your stress level and the amount of anxiety. Stress levels decrease just by petting them where the petting has a nice calming effect.
  2. Some say that cats are more affectionate than dogs. An Austrian study in 2003 found that a cat is the emotional equivalent of having a romantic partner.
  3. Cat owners sleep better, especially women. In many studies, more women have reported that they sleep better with their cat than with a human.
  4. Children, one year and younger, exposed to a cat were less likely to develop allergies-not just pet allergies but other allergies such as dust mites, grass and ragweed.
  5. A cat's purr is therapeutic to human ears. The purr can lower stress, help labored breathing, lower blood pressure, help heal infections, and even heal bones.
  6. Cats keep the mice away! Cats love to catch mice. Even the smell of the cat can keep the mice away.
 Whether you are a dog or cat lover or even both, there are plenty animals that would love to be rescued by a compassionate human to care for them now especially during the Coronavirus pandemic. Your adopted pet would help to relieve the overwhelming responsibilities of the animal shelters. 
Consider fostering or adopting a cat or a dog today!
