It’s no coincidence that seeing a cat or kitten on the internet makes us happy.
Pets rock and science has been backing that up. Having a cat can reduce your stress just by distracting you from other thoughts. As a bonus, they boost your serotonin levels.
Researchers have also found that cats can stimulate the release of oxytocin, the happiness chemical we produce. And if you happen to watch carefully, you’ll see felines are great at sensing our moods and assisting accordingly. One last bonus. Your blood pressure will drop too, more than likely.
