Cat-tent Spotlight #16 Purrapeutic

It is not surprising that if a purr helps heal the cat, it can heal us.  Unlike dogs, cats are relatively calm, making them perfect therapy animals for sensory-sensitive people.  That potential should be explored, considering that behavior modification training is possible with cats. That calmness is also a perfect stress reliever.  I often find it stressful trying to be assertive with dogs who won't leave me alone.  Since I am not the owner, they tend to ignore my authority. I don't want to be too tough and hurt them.   I guess a cat can help reduce stress-related heart atta. Finally, cats are trying to keep themselves warm, usually when they sleep with us.  Although their body temperatures are higher, they still can lose heat.
