This infographic displays the various health benefits of the sound of a cat purring. Apparently, being a crazy cat lady now comes with multiple medical attributes.
Creator Gemma Busquets claims, "Cats create purr vibrations within a range of 20-140 Hz, known to be medically therapeutic for many illnesses." A cat purring can also reduce stress, decrease dysponea symptoms, lower blood pressure and the risk of heart attack. Additionally, cats have the capability to heal bones, tendons, muscles, ligaments, infection and swelling.
Surprisingly, Busquets's infographic did not mention loneliness. However, this infographic will likely vindicate cat lovers. This is especially the case when presented with the argument that dogs can save your life if you are drowning. Cat owners will now be armed with multiple arguments against that claim.
