August 8th is International Cat Day, a day when we celebrate one of mankind’s favorite pet, the cat.
Funny cat videos, cute pictures of cats and cat memes are some of the most viewed content on the internet, which just goes to show how much humans like these furry animals.
Some studies claim that watching funny cat videos online can boost a person’s energy and create positive emotions, and that owning a cat can also be good for your heart.
While I’m still skeptical about this due to personal experience, scientists say that petting a cat is said to reduce stress levels, and with people having such hectic lives, they can be an easier and less demanding choice of pet than owning a dog.
Regardless of whether cats can impact our health in a positive manner or not, they remain an important part of society.
Happy International Cat Day, 2019!
