If You Have Rheumatoid Arthritis, You Might Need A Cat to Stay By Your Side

Rheumatoid Arthritis is associated with chronic pain that can lead to problems, such as depression, loneliness, and isolation.

For people who are living with rheumatoid arthritis, having a pet like a cat will bring many difference for a patien's lifestyle.  

Apparently, cats make the most appropriate pet and companion for people with rheumatoid arthritis who have mobility issues. Here are the reasons why: 

1. Loving and lovable. 

Cats offer unconditional love and you cannot help but reciprocate.

2. Soft and cuddly 

Cats have soft fur and love to cuddle and purr. Cats can have a soothing effect on you.

3. Playful 

When you play with your cat, you cannot help but relax and de-stress.

4. Mostly independent 

As mentioned, cats do not require daily walking. They entertain themselves. They do, however, depend on you to feed them and clean their litter box.

5. Great listeners 

Have you ever talked to your cat? They make eye contact, get drawn in and try to understand what you are saying, and never look bored. You may wonder why you talk to humans after that.

6. Funny 

Cats are silly beings that do funny things. Their silliness is an undeniable mood booster.

7. Loyal 

Cats think they are the boss of your household. But, at the same time they are loyal and revere their owner – especially the one who feeds them.

8. Forgiving 

Were you a bit late feeding your cat? Did you skip a day cleaning their litter box? Did you neglect to brush them? Your cat forgives you – and holds no grudge!

9. Nonjudgmental 

Were you imperfect today? Did you leave dishes in the sink? Did you not finish the laundry? Did you eat too much ice cream? Cats don’t care. They love you anyway.
