A group of psychologists in an unusual study found that cats have a beneficial effect on the work process in a remote work environment.
In particular, according to the authors of the study, cats help relieve tension and stress, as well as raise the mood of their owners. It is reported by the publication The Mirror.
The researchers interviewed 700 people who work at home and have cats.
According to psychologist Gina Akers, one of the authors of the study, people who work remotely and keep cats at home need to prepare a place for their pet near their workplace.
As noted by psychologist Joe Hemmings, the presence of the owner near his cat also calms the animal, for which waiting for the owner to return from work during the day is a lot of stress.
