Did you know there is scientific evidence to suggest your cat's purr can be beneficial? No wonder Mary talks about her cat, Kenny, so much!

Lowering stress — petting a purring cat can calm you

  • A cat’s purr can decrease the symptoms of dyspnoea (difficulty in breathing) in both cats and humans
  • Lower blood pressure by interacting with the cat and hearing the purring sound
  • Reducing the risk of heart disease (cat owners have 40% less risk of having a heart attack)
  • Purr vibrations help to heal infections, swelling, bone healing and growth, pain relief, muscle growth and repair, tendon repair and joint mobility

Find out what else she and Gene talk about, thanks to Barb Marino's research.
