Many people with anxiety have found adopting pets soothes their souls. Pets have been known to lower cortisol levels, reduce stress and dampen our human fight or flight instincts (which often lead to anxiety). The Cornell Feline Health Center at Cornell University says petting a cat, even for just a few minutes, can improve mood. Dogs are often the go-to when it comes to adopting an emotional support animal. This makes sense for folks who may need a pet they can take with them out into the world. However, cats could prove the better choice for some people with anxiety.

The good news is that the average full-grown feline will be fine when left alone for a workday, which means that, in most cases, you needn’t spring for a pet sitter on the regular. Yep, you’ve probably noticed that your cat loves to sleep—up to 18 hours a day, in fact—so you don’t need to feel guilty about putting a day in at the office while your kitty languishes on the couch. Working the nightshift? Again, no big deal. Your particular schedule doesn’t make much of a difference as far as your cat’s alone time is concerned.

Good Food For Your Pets!

Can dogs eat that? Apples, salmon, pumpkin, beans, yogurt… people foods that are safe for your dog to eat. As a responsible and informed dog lover, you probably know that too much “people food” can make your dog ill or overweight, but there are some human foods that can be safely added to your dog’s meals in moderation to give a nutritional boost to Queenie’s diet and add a bit of variety to her food bowl. Just remember: any additions to your dog’s meals shouldn’t comprise more than 25 percent of her weekly caloric requirement.

What Does A Cat’s Kneading Mean?

Scientists who study cat behavior call this distinctive paw action “kneading” and believe it to be a sign of a relaxed cat. My own cats knead before taking a nap near me. While they are kneading, they purr — one of them gets so relaxed, he sometimes drools. Kneading usually occurs near a favorite person.
