I thought I knew this was true! Mommy found this article in the New York Times about how cats are used as therapy animals. Check out their article, “As Animal-Assisted Therapy Thrives, Enter the Cats“. It is quite interesting that some hospitals are beginning to see that friendly animals help people to heal. Even better, us cats can help your body produce more oxytocin, which is the “love hormone”. This means that people will be happy!!
Personally, I know that humans are important to us cats. They feed us, pick up our poop, and, most important, pat us nicely!
Thank you, humans!!
