According to ezinearticles.com:
"Scientific studies have recently confirmed what cat owners have known for a long time... that owning a cat is good for your health. In fact, the results are dramatic, showing that people who have had a pet cat at some point in their lives are 40% less likely to die from a heart attack and 30% less likely to suffer from heart disease. These results are a one-up on dog owners, who despite getting more exercise from their pet, show no health benefits to their hearts."
So, lets talk about cats....
Now I lay me down to sleep,
my owners bed is soft and deep.
I always find the center groove
and my silly owner cannot move!
I've got his legs, he's tucked in tight
And here is where I'll sleep tonight
Do not disturb me or dare intrude
until morning light and and I want food.
I sneak ever so slowly to begin
cute nibbles on my human's chin.
The morning's here it's time to play
and I always seem to get my way.
I thank sunshine for giving me
This human person that I see.
The one who hugs me and holds me tight
And sacrifices his bed at night!
So tell me all about your furry friend and why he / she is so special in your life. Have fun.
