Came across this cute little article today on abc.com.

Owning a pet cat may help your heart

If you’re not allergic to them, having a cat might be great for your heart.

According to researchers at the University of Minnesota, people who don’t own a cat have about a 40 percent higher risk of dying from heart disease.

Scientists don’t know why, but say their best guess is that having a pet relieves stress and anxiety.

Sorry dog owners — researchers found no protective relationship between man and his so called “best friend.” However, that could be due to the limitations of the study, and not a conclusion about dogs specifically.

    This obviously means it’s necessary to get a cat (or a french bull dog). It’s for your health.
