Today's seemed most appropriate. It says:
"Cats: The Purrrfect Mood Booster? Any cat lover will attest to the emotional benefits of kitty companionship, but what does the science say?
Here's the scoop: Although the jury's still out on whether pussycats (and other pets) can actually improve your mood, studies do suggest a furry friend may help:
* Dampen depression
* Lessen loneliness
* Squash stress* Banish bad moods
Wow. Good kitty. It's not fully understood exactly how animals soothe the soul. Is it the sense of companionship, the unconditional love and acceptance, or something else entirely that helps pets bring out the best in their humans? Kibble for thought. But one thing's for certain: Those creaturecomforts -- courtesy of your cat -- are making your RealAge younger, and that's sure to boost your mood!"
Well, if that's accurate, I must be the least depressed, lonely, stressful person in the world, given the fact that the Gypsy won't let me alone. (Try knitting with a cat on your lap. Yes, it can be done. Not well, but it can be done.)
Try reading "Artful Blogging" when your blog's namesake keeps pawing at it relentlessly, begging for you to put it down! It can be done.
OK, I HAVE been a little depressed lately, and extremely stressed. But I do think I'm far less so, thanks to one Marmelade Gypsy!
To lighten your load, here's a little bit of ragtime starring my orange boy!
