7 Health Benefits of Cat Purrs
What’s more comforting than petting a soft cuddly cat and listening to him purr? Scientists have actually studied the effects of the sound of purring on humans, and they’ve discovered some interesting reasons why we respond so positively to purrs. Here’s some background on why listening to your cat’s purr may just be the best route to a happy and healthy life!
Cats purr in the 20-140 Hz range, which happens to be a very therapeutic sound range that contributes to our physical and mental well-being. What specific human aliments respond to the healing sound of cat purrs?
1. Stress: Petting a purring cat is a sure way to calm your nerves.
2. Breathing: The sound of purring eases dysponea (shortness of breath) in both cats and humans.
3. Blood pressure: Interacting with cats and hearing them purr lowers blood pressure.
4. Bone healing: It’s been found that sound frequencies between 25 and 200 Hz promote bone strength.
5. Heart attack: Cat owners have a 40% reduced risk of heart attack as compared to non-cat owners.

6. Infection/swelling: The vibrations associated with purring can help heal wounds on your body.
7. Muscles/tendons: Those same vibrations can also help heal soft tissue injuries.
