There's been plenty of research indicating that having pets is good for your health. I never really noticed any particular benefits to having cats, though that may have had more to do with my cats. They've been fairly indifferent to my presence and we've shared a live-and-let-live...

    I was just reading a literature review of evidence based psychology (you're only young once), and came across an entry for this study, where the review seems to spin the results even more than the researchers. Also - I thought this paper had been discussed here, but I cannot find it now, so have added the original abstract at the end too.


    Here's the abstract and one for a related study:

    Esther12 : at the top, you have copied the same abstract twice, which confused me anyway for a little while, trying to spot the differences. corrected

    Regarding the changes, good spot. I think the change may be justified: the initial one:

    could be interpreted by some as a deterioration in the follow-up period, when that isn't what happened (going by the second paper).

    @ Dolphin - thanks - I think I had a total brain-fart, so have edited my first post. I didn't really take the time to look in to the study, but needed to close my windows, so thought I'd post it up... I think I got confused in the rush.
