In honour of World Cat Day tomorrow . . . some tidbits.
According to the cat calendar I received at Christmas, owning a cat reduces the risk of stroke or heart attack by a third. Chillin’ with a creature that’s chill is medicine for body and soul, or catspirin as the calendar calls it.
Who couldn’t use a little blood pressure relief right about now?
Also from my cat calendar: Olympic sprinter, Usain Bolt, can run 27 mph (43.5 km/hr), but cats can run 30 mph (48.3 km/hr).
If they want to. 🙂
I know. These cat facts have made your day better already. A little cat medicine for you.
“If they want to.” That’s the official cat motto, and I rather admire it. 🤔
Arlene, I’m more of a dog person, but I like the lazy habits of kitty kats, which I’d do well to imitate more often. Pets in general are stress relievers and in some cases exercise motivators. Great post!
I like dogs also, for different reasons. They are the unconditional love playmates. I love cats for their independence and grace, and intelligence. Such wonderful animals. I am the only person in my household who feels that way about cats, so I’m not destined to own one myself, but I enjoy other people’s cats.
They’re chill, they’re fast…if only they could shovel snow. ❄️❄️
Still chuckling at “catspirin”
More snow falling on us today, but our cats will not be the least bit helpful with that. Oh well.
