Meow, meow!=Hi everyone, Muffin here! Welcome back to my “Mewsings” for this week! Today going to be a bit different, not talk about my fun human. He did do some funny things, but I will talk about them another time. But yesterday when he try to do funny thing for me he actually hurt himself when he fall over antique oak chair. So that one not funny, not like when he get hurt. Most of time he not really hurt, just do something funny to make me laugh. But this one made me think, hey, I got good idea! I talk about why having a cat in house is good for human people’s health! Aside from fact we just cute and cuddly, we also good for many other things too. Everyone should have cat, even if you have dog. Cats and dogs can be very good friends, especially when start as kitten and puppy.
These facts I share today not something I make up myself, these facts come from actual studies done. Even dogs good for many health reasons too, but since I a cat then we concentrate on health benefits of cats for humans. Did you know that we cats can help children with their health right from very early age. When children under a year old were exposed to a cat in home, they were less likely to develop allergies of many kinds, not just allergy to cats. But high exposure to cats in children early life does protect against pet allergy. Also it help to protect against allergy to dust mites, ragweed and grass. And early exposure to cats helps reduce risk of asthma in kids. Also help to reduce risk of obesity. And interaction with cats helps kids absorb sialic acid which does not occur naturally in human body, and it help to regulate inflammatory reactions.
Cats also help to improve behavior and social interaction in children who have disorders like autism spectrum disorder. Cats helped to provide them with valuable bonding, attention and calming affection to the child. Wow, talk about lots of things we can help human people when just still children! But it not stop there, we good to help adults with their health as well in so many ways. But I think maybe that have to wait for next time, there so much more good health news to come! Right from little children and all the way up to older humans we can be good to have around to be a big help to you and your health! Some of these health helps would apply to having dog as well.
Did you know that cats and dogs actually make the best pets of all animals? It true, really. And cats are the number one pet in whole world! That all for today, don’t forget to come back Thursday, this week, for part 2 of cat health benefits for human people. Have a very bemeowtiful day everyone!
