Intrigued? Yes, it is true with science to back that claim. The secret is their purring.

Cats purr at a vibration of the range 20-140 Hz that helps in healing various medical conditions in the human body, like reducing the symptoms of dysponea and healing infections, swelling and injury on soft tissues. The purr also reduces stress levels and blood pressure. Oxytocin is a hormone that is released in the brain and in common tongue is called the “feel good” hormone. When you play with cats, oxytocin is released reducing stress levels and consequently blood pressure. The other two hormones that are released when you play with cats are dopamine and serotonin. They are important to the stability of the immune system. Thus, it would not be too far-fetched to say that a cat is more than a pet, it is a life insurance.
