I personally would guess that having a cat purr near us, especially for those who really like cats, would be beneficial in a way of relaxation. It's probably beneficial to the lowering of blood pressure and heart rate, like watching tropical fish in an aquarium. There have been studies that say patting an animal lowers blood pressure, dog or cat. Maybe even ferrets and horses!

Yes. A cat's purring can be very relaxing, and in turn lower your blood pressure. I read that in a medical magazine once while in a doctor's waiting room.
