An old saying among vets is quite telling – “If you put a cat and a bunch of broken bones in the same room, the bones will heal.”

While this saying is a bit sensational, there is some truth to it.

Studies have revealed that cat purr vibrations — which range between 20 and 140 hertz (Hz), can actually promote bone healing and strength. If for any reason, you’ve had a recent injury, it’s an excellent idea that you curl up with one of your purr masters.

Also, the purr has been found to decrease dyspnea (caused by asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease or COPD, and bronchitis), cure infection, lower blood pressure, and heal tendons and ligament injuries.
