Lowers Blood Pressure — Cats help humans lower their blood pressure.

Heals Bones — The purr vibratory rate promotes bone strength.

Lowers Risk of Heart Attacks — Cat owners have 40% less chance of a heart attack.

Heals Infections — Cat purr vibrations help to heal infections, swelling, and inflammation.

Heals Muscles — Cat purrs promote healing of muscles, tendons, and ligaments.
