Why does our blood pressure rise when talking to a person but fall when talking to our cat? — 8 Comments

  1. I think it’s because if a cat likes or dislikes you they don’t try to hide it. Humans judge one another, often unfairly, and will lie and conceal to try to get an advantage. Cats are pretty straightforward.

    Then too, with those cute faces, big ears and large eyes, cats might just awaken a protective instinct in us, like babies. We relax around cats, unless we’ve had a bad experience with them.

    • A good point Serbella. It is even more than our cat not judging us it is that we are protective towards them and this is a natural maternal/paternal emotion which is nice.

      • Thanks, Michael. What seals the deal is the fact that cats meow only at us. They don’t meow at each other. That soft, high-pitched voice (or the even more devastating silent meow) and they’ve got us. I for one welcome our feline overlords.

  2. My take is that a lot of people don’t interact honestly and cats do. Cats have no hidden agendas. They don’t lie or deceive.
