WebMD recently posted a news report claiming that, compared with cat owners, people who had never had a pet cat were 40% more likely to die of a heart attack and 30% more likely to die of a cardiovascular disease, including stroke, heart failure, and chronic heart disease. Unfortunately the researchers found no such link for people who had a pet dog.
As a cat owner, this obligates you to immediately buy something nice for your kitty. Just think of all the money they are saving you on medical bills! A great place to start is the Good Kitty Gift Basket. It is chocked full of yarn animals, catnip-stuffed mice, sparkle balls, lattice balls: the works! Your cat will also love the fancy rhinestone collar and kitty treats. A shiny new bowl and brush for pampering seal the deal.
Here’s to your cat and your health!
