According to the study، the Internet phenomenon of watching cat videos does more than simply entertain; it boosts viewers’ energy and positive emotions and decreases negative feelings.

The study saw people watching the cat video on regular basis had fewer negative emotions، such as anxiety، annoyance and sadness.

On International Cat Day،، Indian express have listed down some amazing health benefits of having a pet cat.
