The Healing Power of Cat Purrs

Cats purr at a rate of 20 to 140 Hz, a vibratory rate known to be medically therapeutic for many illnesses.

Lowers Stress — Petting a cat calms people’s nerves.

Decreases Dysponea — A cat’s purr decreases the symptoms of dysponea (shortness of breath).

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.

Veterinary Adage: If you put a cat and a bunch of broken bones in the same room, the bones will heal.
