Video Introduction

Do you own a cat? Nowadays, more and more people are likely to raise a cute nonhuman partner at home. In the United States 70% of households own a pet, and 45.3 million of them own a cat. A cat, with soft hair and a lovely look, could not only accompany the old to avoid feeling lonely but also refresh young people when they are overloaded after heavy work all day. It seems that cats always bring people inner comfort; however, some research reveals that they may come with mental hazards as well.[1]
