Cats Aid Recovery

One of the things cats are especially good at is helping people overcome stressful life events. Here are some of the ways cats can help.

  • Cats provide us with companionship.
  • They help us reconnect with our neighbors and friends.
  • Cats can serve as companions when family's not around, or make our families even closer.
  • They can give us a sense of empowerment that helps us take better care of ourselves.

We hope this information helps you understand more about how your cat can contribute to your well-being.
