We know cats are good for our health. Studies have shown sharing your life with cats can lower your risk of heart attack, petting a cat can lower your blood pressure, and cats can reduce stress, anxiety and depression. A recent preliminary study has shown that owning a cat (or dog) may be linked to slower cognitive decline in older adults. For more about the study, visit the Good News Network.
