Did you know owning a cat cuts a person’s risk of having a stroke by more than a third!!! Researchers theorize that petting a cat can lower stress or that the type of people who own cats are more stress-free naturally.
While most of us are aware of canines being used as a therapy animal or service pets, your new kitten can bring many added benefits to your life as well! Many facilities throughout the US offer animal contact to patients and residents. As a part of therapy or simply to lift the spirits of those suffering various medical conditions. You may find these excellent therapy animals within hospitals, nursing homes, rehabilitation centers, schools, and other facilities.
A seven-year study of almost 1000 children found that children who were exposed to dogs and cats as babies were half as likely to have allergies and risk factors for asthma as they grew up than those who had no pets. Infants with more than one pet in the home had the lowest risk of allergies. So even though you might have to be cautious with pets around babies to make sure the pets don’t become aggressive with them, having those pets around could very well benefit your child in the long run.
Purr-fect for comfort
If you have owned a feline in the past, have you noticed how they have the innate gift of being there for comfort when you are in need? They almost know and can feel when we are upset. In addition, they always try their best to let us know they are there. I know that has certainly been the case year after year. The bond we create with our feline companions is unmatched.
We have come in contact with numerous customers who have experienced difficult times in their life; the death of a family member, serious medical issues, depression, loss of a beloved pet, and deployment, just to name a few. They come to us seeking comfort and companionship with one of our beautiful, docile, loving kittens. To be able to share our love of the Persian breed, and to know that our kittens have offered so much comfort to our customer means the world to us.
Many of our therapy kitties serve as luxury service animals in various nursing & rehabilitation centers across the country as well as several PTSD clients.
While all of our kittens come highly socialized and eager to be a part of your family and spend much one on one time with their new owners, a large amount of them have been highly bred to be emotional support animals to our clients with emotional needs such as:
• Bipolar/mood disorders
• Panic attacks
