Sleeping with a cat can have some unexpected health benefits. A study published in 2015 found that people who slept with a cat were more likely to report feeling good about their health than those who didn’t.
There are a few possible explanations for this. One is that people who sleep with cats may be more likely to have higher levels of the “love hormone” oxytocin. Oxytocin has been linked to a number of health benefits, including lower blood pressure and reduced stress levels.
Another possibility is that sleeping with a cat can help reduce allergic reactions. This is because cats groom themselves constantly, which helps remove allergens from their fur. This can help reduce the amount of allergens in the air and on your bedding.
Whatever the reason, there’s no doubt that sleeping with a cat can be good for your health. So if you’re looking for a furry friend to snuggle up with at night, a cat may be the perfect choice.
