Suck it, cat haters:

Cats may claw your furniture, ignore your calls and smudge your walls with paw prints, but researchers at the University of Minnesota have found they also might reduce your risk of dying from a heart attack.

Comparing 4,435 adults in the United States, researchers found that people who didn’t own a cat had a 40 percent higher risk of dying from heart disease. The study results were disclosed Thursday at the International Stroke Conference in New Orleans.

Woo hoo! With three cats, I’m covered bitches.

    Oh, man, that little guy is beyond cute. It’s practically not even fair. Like Puss-in-Boots in Shrek II. I feel my blood pressure dropping…

    Two cats, one that loves the outdoors all the time, one that only loves the outdoors when it’s not cold outside.

    Both clamoring for attention every minute I’m in the house.

    And then there are the 3 dogs . . . All these kids are tuckering me out!
