Are you struggling to get to sleep at night? May be you have already tried different techniques but not found anything to break through the shield of alertness and worry so that you can immerse yourself in relaxation and sleep.
Much has been written and research has shown how a cat’s purring can aid relaxation and sleep. It helps to lower our heart rate, slow down our metabolism and prepare for sleep.
Having a cat around you can actually trigger the release of calming chemicals in your body which lower your stress and anxiety levels. The calming effect of owning a cat triggers the release of oxytocin, the hormone known for inducing feelings of love and trust. People going through difficult times of grief or mourning report that talking to their pet helps work out their feelings, since it is often easier to talk to something that won’t respond and can’t judge than to another human being. In addition, a study found that children with autism were more likely to be less anxious and calm while petting a cat.
Well the internet now has a cat!
His/her name is Purli and you can set Purli to purr and occasionally Mew in a way that suits you. Purli is a recording of a continuous cat purr which has been designed to aid rest and sleep.
