Even when an animal is not specifically meant for service or support, we know that they definitely can provide a lot of comfort for us & help with our overall well being. I’ve mainly had kitties in my life & can attest that they do make me feel better. Especially when my health is iffy. They’re good for your heart, help lower your blood pressure, help you through loss. Please go to, I Heart Cats to read of the other benefits. I find them to be wonderful companions & have been blessed with a lot of different kitties in my life.
