MEDICAL CORNER … Healing power of cats’ purring!!


CatPurr

~~November 15, 2014~~

Our feline friends provide us with more than just emotional support. House cats may actually be contributing to our physical well-being. When a cat purrs within a range of 20-140 Hertz, nearby humans may be therapeutically benefiting from these vibrations. Purring has been linked to lowering stress, decreasing symptoms of dyspnea, lessening the chances of having a heart attack, and even strengthening bones.

Pet therapy is apparently gaining momentum in many medical communities, and according to Animal Planet’s website, there is scientific research that suggests pet owners live longer than those without pets.

It seems that our own animals have the ability to relieve us of our troubles, or at least make our worries seem less important. The bond between pets and their owners may never be fully understood (cats in particular have always struck me as magical and mysterious–and now they have healing powers?!) but it’s nice to know having a furry confidant around can add years to our lives.

  1. I adore cats. When I went out walking I would find cats coming up to me purring. I can’t have one where I live at the moment but as soon as I can I will be getting one. I once had a dental abcess and my cat I had at the time knew it and would lie on my pillow near it so that his body warmth would soothe my jaw. It helped me so much. He was very much my cat and was possessive of me. He disappeared one day and a few days later I had a dream of him lying on my lap. He had come back to me to tell me that he had gone for good so that I wouldn’t worry about him anymore. 😀

  2. Your Gazoo reminds me of one Skinny I had a few years ago. He3 used ot lick me when I petted him. My allergist told me to keep my cats but not let them sleep in my bed….I sort of listened most of the times. After they passed I researched to get a cat with less allergins…rescuing my Siberian mix, Bette, has proven the research right. I am hardly affected. She is my BFF «(best feline friend)
