Vilda News: Watching Cat Videos is Good for You

Just spent another afternoon watching cat videos on YouTube? Don’t feel too guilty: science is actually on your side in this one. A recent study in Computers in Human Behaviour shows that watching cat videos is not only good for your mood (which we kind of figured) but also helps you become more productive.

Around 7000 people’s mood was investigated before and after watching cat videos, showing they were more capable of facing difficulties and handling negative emotions. Feeling calmer and less irritated was just one of the benefits of watching kittens chase toys around.

There you have it: pet therapy is apparently only a couple of clicks away. Excuse us, we’ll be going back to viewing now. Meow.
