Pets bring com­fort to the house, give warmth and affec­tion, become true friends for their own­ers. Cats have lived side by side with humans for cen­turies. For a long time, the mus­ta­chioed-striped ones played the role of hunters, help­ing a per­son get rid of rodents.

As soon as a tailed pet appears in the house, the cli­mate with­in the fam­i­ly improves. Spous­es quar­rel less, smile more often and are in a good mood. The cat real­ly charges with pos­i­tive emo­tions. In addi­tion, he is an excel­lent lis­ten­er. It is always eas­i­er to open your soul to an affec­tion­ate pet: the ani­mal is ready to accept and lis­ten to you to the end, will not inter­rupt, con­demn or give advice. Yes, and purrs, as if in agree­ment. No mat­ter how bad your day is, it is enough to pick up a cat, and all adver­si­ty recedes.

Sci­en­tists have proven that this ani­mal has a relax­ing effect, helps to get rid of neu­ro­sis and depres­sion. Mea­sured purring low­ers blood pres­sure, nor­mal­izes the work of the heart and relieves stress.

An inter­est­ing dis­cov­ery was made by Cana­di­an researchers. Sound vibra­tions of a cat’s purr (range — 30–40 hertz) are sim­i­lar to ultra­sound ther­a­py. Your pet’s lul­la­by speeds up frac­ture heal­ing and increas­es bone den­si­ty. Sci­en­tists rec­om­mend using purr to pre­vent osteo­poro­sis in the elder­ly. Any cat that meets a few sim­ple cri­te­ria can act as a heal­er: the ani­mal must be an adult, healthy, con­tact and friend­ly to peo­ple.

There is an opin­ion that among cats there are espe­cial­ly tal­ent­ed heal­ers., who spe­cial­ize in the fight against cer­tain dis­eases. For exam­ple, long-haired pets (Siber­ian, Ango­ra, Per­sian) are won­der­ful neu­ropathol­o­gists. Short­hair — help to over­come dis­eases of the diges­tive sys­tem and kid­neys. Siamese — pro­tect against colds and viral infec­tions. The British treat heart dis­ease.

In order for feline ther­a­py to bring pos­i­tive results, it is very impor­tant to love the cat and take care of it. The ani­mal needs prop­er rest, good sleep and nutri­tion. The cat will become a devot­ed friend and fam­i­ly doc­tor if you respond to her caress!
