Reasons To Be Thankful For Cats

Thanksgiving is almost here! We have a lot of things to be grateful for. True to form, Fluffy has climbed pretty far up that list. She’s now sitting there looking quite proud of herself … and with good reason! Here, a Rochester, NY veterinarian lists some reasons to be thankful for these lovable, quirky balls of fur.

Mood Booster

Fluffy has a way of melting our hearts and making us smile. Sometimes just seeing a kitty sleeping peacefully or playfully pouncing on a catnip mouse is enough to lift your spirits!


Kitties can also make great companions. They can be extremely beneficial for those who live by themselves, and can keep people from feeling lonely.

Mousing Skills

This one may not be as big a deal as it once was. However, there are still plenty of folks who appreciate Fluffy’s hunting prowess!

Comedy Gold

Although many of our animal friends can make us laugh, cats may be the funniest. Fluffy’s silly antics, adorable quirks, and charming expressions provide ongoing live entertainment. If you believe—as we do—that laughter is good for the soul, you may also agree with our conviction that our feline pals are worth their weight in gold.

Lap Warmers

Snuggling up with a purring cat can be pretty relaxing. In fact, Fluffy can be extremely helpful to anyone with insomnia. Your furry friend may even adjust her napping schedule so that she can snooze while you’re at work, and then cuddle up with you at night.

Health Benefits

Fluffy’s purr has some very interesting healing properties: the frequencies kitties vibrate at have been shown to promote healing. In fact, they’re actually used in therapy!


Cuddling cats can be very soothing. This can be very helpful for those who are struggling with anxiety, depression, or trauma, or even just having a bad day. These little furballs are good for our bodies, minds, and souls!

Love And Purrs

Fluffy is a perfect cuddle buddy. She fits perfectly into our laps and arms, and sometimes starts purring the moment you pet her or pick her up. You’re bound to smile when your feline buddy rubs her forehead against you or meows at you for treats or attention!

Happy Thanksgiving from all of us here at All Cats Care Center, your Rochester, NY animal clinic. We hope you all have a ‘purrfectly’ wonderful holiday!
