I do not have to say much, as the pictures of Batcat below, taken this weekend while he was relaxing in front of the fireplace, speak louder than words. The best thing about having a cat, besides many years of companionship and lot of cuddliness, is the way they are able to relax. It is highly contagious. When they relax, you simply HAVE to as well. Nothing is more soothing than watching the felines being totally indifferent to the world.
Owning a cat is the best therapy against stress.;))
