As mothers, we know parenting can be stressful. We love our children, but they can be a handful and can cause stress, anxiety, and restlessness. There is a solution, and it’s quite surprising: you need to adopt another child.
This child won’t be like your other kids. It comes with four legs, fur, and requires no potty training. We’re talking about getting a cat!
Cats can offer companionship for your children, should they be old enough to handle one. Cats come with a variety of positive health effects. You may not see it at first, but your feline companion can reduce stress, help you sleep better at night, and make you happier – this all is backed by science.
Don’t believe me? Check out this infographic below to see why cats are the purrfect companions. And if you have room for one, head to your local shelter and adopt one today. If you’d like to see more of the nitty-gritty details, check out Catological for the original infographic and article!
Emily Parker runs Catological, a blog dedicated to helping cat parents love their kitties better. She has lived in both dog and cat homes, and is excited to introduce a new dog to her family (which includes 2 cats) in the coming year.
