Having a cat around the house could cut your risk of having a heart attack or stroke by almost half.
Researchers at the University of Minnesota have recently released a report that states that owning and stroking a purring feline may reduce stress and anxiety, and so protect against cardiovascular disease.
The study involved nearly 4,500 adults aged between 30 and 75 and found that cat owners had a 40 per cent lower risk of suffering a fatal heart attack.
But the authors of the paper did not suggest that people rush out to purchase a feline. They said while kitties may have a calming effect, it was unclear whether the kind of people who opted for a cat in the first place may have a lower risk of heart attack.
The study, led by Professor Adnan Qureshi, factored in other heart disease risk factors including smoking and diabetes. The findings were unveiled at the International Stroke Conference.
