"Owning a cat could reduce your risk of a heart attack by nearly one third... The finding was the main result of a 10 year study of more than 4,000 Americans by researchers at the University of Minnesota's Stroke Institute in Minneapolis... The American Veterinary Medical Association estimates there are about... 82 million pet cats in the US."

Get a cat to have less stress in your life and reduce the risk of dying of a heart attack. Love those purrs! :-)
