Six Reasons to Give Thanks for Your Cat!

Cat Crazy Newsletter

Happy Thanksgiving to you! With this special holiday comes time to pause and reflect on the things that we are most thankful for in our lives. We think how grateful we are to have a table full of food, a roof above our heads and family surrounding us. There is so much to be thankful for and one of those things is our pets. Don’t forget to be grateful for all that our pets add to our lives.

Here are 6 good reasons to give thanks for your kitty!

Love. If there’s one thing you know, it’s that your pet loves you. And if you love your pet, that love comes back to you tenfold.

Companionship. Your pet keeps you company, and that company helps you to feel less lonely and isolated, especially if you live alone. Coming home to your pet gives you something to look forward to.

Physical contact. When your purring cat sits cuddled in your lap, all is right with the world. Studies prove that cuddling and stroking your pet is good for you; it makes you calmer and can even lower your heart rate and your blood pressure.

Someone to talk to. Talking things out relieves a lot of internal pressure. But having someone to talk to makes a difference, too. It makes you feel less lonely. Talk about anything – your pet will listen.

Motivation to exercise. Most pets need exercise every day. Even playing you’re your cat gives you some activity. Physical exercise helps you to deal with stress.

Security. Cats may not be able to “defend” you or be a “watchdog” but sometimes just having your pet nearby is enough to make you feel less anxious and more secure.

This Thanksgiving as we gather together to give thanks for our blessings, lets not forget our pets, those faithful companions that are such an important part of our lives.

Until next time…
