10 Ways a Savannah Cat Can Make You Healthier
Your Savannah Cat (or any cat for that matter) may be able to keep your doctor away the same way fruit and veggies do! Alright, maybe not quite as well, but there are some major health benefits to owning a cat.
For those that are not familiar with the Savannah Cat breed, it is a hybrid cat, which means that a wild African Serval is bred with a domestic cat. They have an exotic appearance, but possess a loving, social personality similar to that of the domestic cat. When gazing at a Savannah Cat, people usually think they are much larger in size than they actually are due to the length and height of the cat. The largest Savannahs can be up to 30 lbs in weight and 19 inches in height (to their shoulder).
F3SavannahCat.com recently published an infographic showcasing how Savannah Cats can make their owners healthier (you can find it below). Here is an example: were you aware that taking care of a Savannah Cat can reduce symptoms of depression? It can – according to Dr. Ian Cook from the Depression Research and Clinic Program at UCLA, “[Cats] offer an unconditional love that can be very helpful to people that suffer from depression.”
Or how about this: did you know that owning a cat can lower your blood pressure? According to a study performed by a psychologist from the University of New York at Buffalo, a cat owner’s blood pressure spikes caused by stressful situations are about 50% lower than a non cat owner’s.
Pretty cool, isn’t it?
