According to the Minnesota Stroke Institute, cat owners benefit from a lower incidence of heart disease and are 30% less likely to suffer a heart attack. Pretty amazing isn't it?

Many other studies that we've spoken about in the past show that owning a cat can also lower your cholesterol levels and improve your reaction to stressful situations.

No one really understands the correlation between cats and lower heart disease levels; we can only assume that it has to do with stress levels being lowered by our feline friends.

I know there's been a million times when I've been stressed out only to have my cat Maddy lie on me or kneed my face. Do you have any stories about your cat making your life better? Share them below, we'd love to hear from you.
