Cats can be very useful pets. I don’t mean that they can pull a tractor like a horse or provide milk like a cow. But no one would call those animals pets. Perhaps you think that a dog makes a useful pet. Dogs can be great for guarding a house or providing loud companionship. But cats can be even more useful. That’s because research shows that the simple act of petting a cat can be very calming, even if you are engaged in activity that causes excitement while you are petting the cat. A good example is playing online casino games. Playing games like poker, blackjack, and roulette for real money can be very exciting. You can understand how easy it would be to lose focus playing such games. But, if you play while petting your cat, you can help yourself to stay calm and collected and in control. Just keep your cat in your lap while you play your favorite games. Of course, you could never bring a cat to a land-based casino. The casinos know that pet cats can provide the player with an advantage. But you can use your cat at home where you set the rules for playing. You can play whenever you wants and you can certainly play while petting your pet cat if that is what you wish to do. This is just one way that cats make superior and useful pets for people who enjoy online real money gaming from their homes.
