Have you ever noyiced that when you pet a cat or dog, you feel relaxed and at peace? How about when you play with your pet do you get the same enjoyment as if you were playing with a child? Please explain your feelings. I would really like to know.

I do when the cat is sitting on me and purring up a storm. I call it purr therapy. It makes me feel so much better. The stress just pours right out of me. They always seem to know when I really need it to because that's when they confiscate my lap and demand love. I start petting them and the next thing I know I'm very calm and relaxed. I don't feel as pressured about anything. It's wonderful.
