Six Truths about the Effects Cats Have on Our Lives

Hey, it’s Amy Newmark with your Chicken Soup for the Soul and today I want to share six stories from our book about clever, curious, caring cats and talk about the effects cats have on our lives. Because they do have an impact. Somehow, they brighten our days, act as our therapists, and become our best friends—without saying a word. They’re surprisingly clever, comically curious, and truly caring, too. They show us how to live in the moment, find our inner strength, and be the best versions of our human selves. If we rescued them, from a shelter or our back yards, they rescue us back. And their playfulness and antics make us smile, even on our darkest days.  Learn more about your ad choices. Visit
