The Boy Cat is happy. Getting his tummy tickled. Apart from eating and sleeping, that is his favourite thing. It provides such a great stress release for the human.


You find out that the cat has been lying on your Black T-shirt. White cat hair is not a great look on black….

The cat – a stress reliever and stress provider….

  1. He’s a cutie, and there’s always the defuzzer. lol
    When I was working, Maggie would get up on the arm of the chair and I would stroke her. I could feel the stess of the day easing away, and after about ten minutes, she;d jump off and go on her own bed. My neighbour was right with her gift the other day:
    “I don’t need a therapist………… I’ve got a dog”. Works with cats too…………………

  2. They are great stress relievers! We have one, Oliver, who always senses when I am sad, and comes to plop himself in my lap for pets. His loud purring always helps. And as for the shirt … look on the bright side … at least he didn’t throw up on it! 😼

  3. Cats are machiavellian – experts in sado-masochism, the giving of pleasure mixed with pain.

    Trust one at your peril! Ask any dog. πŸ˜‰

    I do have one question: Who left a black shirt lying around where a white haired cat could lie on it??

  4. I love this post πŸ˜€ We are fortunate enough to have a solid black cat at the moment who doesn’t shed. However, in times past, oh my! I have had belongings which seemed to disappear in kitty fur. Just poof – gone.

    I definitely believe cats are the best stress relievers though. Even science has confirmed that a cat’s purr relives anxiety and lowers blood pressure. But, as you’ve so perfectly stated, they also raise it too!

    Thanks for the smile πŸ™‚ Have a really great day

      1. Oh yes… especially if you get in the way of those claws. But they can be very loving, too. Some would say that it’s just food and warmth, but I think they feel love, too.
