If you're obsessed with talking to your cats then psychologist Dr Danielle Forshee has some fantastic news for you.
Dr Danielle is both a licensed clinical social worker and a doctor of psychology, so you'd better believe she's right when she says that talking to your pet has health benefits.
She claims that when talking with your pet you develop and sustain a bond that's healthy for the both of you, as it has a positive affect on your mental health.
And if you don't talk to your pet who else will?
Your pets can also provide you with a whole host of other health benefits too.
Dr Danielle believes that owning a pet helps fight depression and can even prevent heart disease and help to lower blood pressure.
Her studies have shown that communicating with a pet cat or dog can control stress better than the drug usually used to treat high blood pressure.
See, it's backed up by real science.
