Do you ever get the feeling your furry friend knows when you’re not feeling well or even where it hurts?
If you have a headache, she knows to settle down by your head. If you have a stomachache, she will come and sit on your abdomen. And all the time she sits there, she won’t stop purring! A cat’s purr is so relaxing and stress-reducing and science has shown it can also be beneficial to our bodies. It’s not just the sound of purring that’s important, but also the vibration it produces.
It’s an old veterinary saying which states: “If you put a cat and a bunch of broken bones in the same room, the bones will heal.”
