“Cats are magical. . .the more you pet them the longer you both live.”

Now every respectable kitty knows this to be true.  We dearly love to be stroked, and petted, and it activates our purrboxes ... but did you know it lowers  your blood pressure? Helps get you over the common cold? reduces anxiety?  I know you don't always appreciate our gifts to you, the most choice part of a freshly killed mouse, or bird, and we don't understand that.  I mean, we've brought you a gift! Shared with you our kill! Shown our love and respect!  Silly humans.  You trip over us and holler when you do, but do you realize that if you walked more slowly and observed what's around you, you wouldn't have tripped over us in the first place? I mean, SLOW DOWN!!!!  Enjoy a nap in the sunbeams!  Learn the intense pleasure of a really good streeeettttttccccccchhhhhhhh!  And when WE are done eating, we sit and groom, wash our paws and faces, but what do YOU do! You pile the dishes up in the sink and go do something else!  No wonder you have indigestion!  You have so much to learn, if only you'd let us teach you!!!   Purrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

Our human is finding that we do help lower her anxiety and relieve stress. She has gone through a lot lately so our job is needed more lately. copper and todd
