Do you know what dopamine is? It’s a chemical in your body that can raise and lower depending on what you’re doing and how excited you feel. If you finish a long race, go on a rollarcoaster or play awesome online casino games, you’ll see your dopamine and serotonin levels go up. This creates the feeling of excitement that you have when you do something that creates energy and anticipation and it’s the reason that so many people love playing online casino games. Playing games actually causes both highs and lows in these levels, since you get a high when you anticipate the end of the game and wait to see if you’ve won; then you will feel a low if you lost and before you start the next game. Interestingly, if you are someone who has cats in the house and loves your cats, the cats actually regulate these levels. They tend to sooth people and to make a calming effect on the cat owner. For this reason, it’s interesting to think of playing online casino games, which create swings in these levels, while petting and enjoying your cat. Your cat regulates the levels, while the exciting games create the swings in the levels. Next time that you have some free time, consider enjoying online casino games while petting your cat and get ready to feel these interesting swings and the calming effect that the cats create.

There are many great emotional benefits of having household pets such as cats and pets in your home. Because they tend to lower the stress and anxiety levels of their owners, such as after a long day at work or during activities that may raise the owner’s blood pressure such as playing casino games at the online casino, it is always a great idea to have a dog or a cat around to pet and stroke. Some people however may live in an apartment that is too small to handle a pet or pets may not be allowed. A great idea to benefit from the therapeutic advantages that cats, dogs and even larger animals such as horses provide is to regularly spend time at a local animal shelter. Many shelters are happy for pet lovers to spend a few hours playing with the animals and even taking them for a walk. Even just spending an hour a week at a shelter will enrich your life and it will also be a great help to the animal shelter who are often low on resources and manpower. Both people who are knowledgeable about animals as well as those who go having no prior knowledge can learn so much by being around animals. Many pets in the rescue shelters are desperate for human contact and affection and both the animal and the volunteer will come away feeling enriched by this experience.

Taking a dog for a walk is a stress reliever for some people but for many others that own cats, just simply petting the cat is the greatest stress reliever and tension breaker of all. In fact it has been proven time and time again that petting a cat lowers blood pressure and increases the production of serotonin which is a feel good chemical in the body. This natural stress reliever is great for anyone who needs it but it is also seen as very beneficial for online casino players. It may sound crazy but think about it reducing stress and blood pressure when playing exciting games like slots and video pokers or table games like roulette or blackjack is sure way to enjoy the game more and even get more out of the game. When playing online casino games, players invariably have a hand free because they only need one hand to click on different items with the computer mouse and they can use their other hand to soothing pet their cat as the reels of the slots game turn or the tension rises as the ball spins around a roulette wheel. The gentle stroking motion of the cat is a constant soothing feeling that will create positive feeling and increase all of the feel good chemicals in the brain and therefore create a better and more conducive atmosphere for enjoying casino games and hopefully winning them too.
There is something to be said for white noise, which is a constant subtle noise that is continuous, a bit like a purring cat when it is relaxed and happy and being petted all the time. The white noise is constant and known to relax people just as the constant purring of a cat is known to relax people and keep them calm. Playing at online casinos and land based casinos is very thrilling and something that people from all over the world enjoy and benefit from but when at a land based casino there is no chance of bringing a pet in to the casino to keep the player calm on the other hand at the online casino the player is free to do what he wants when he wants. He can sit in his pajamas and play endless online casino games while stroking his cat to keep him calm, drinking coffee to stay awake or even eating a gourmet meal. The versatility of the online casino offers players many different options in addition to the fantastic range of casino games that they present to the players. There are slots, video pokers, table games and specialty games to choose from all of which can be stopped and started at any time and in some cases there is no need to even download the games, they can be played directly from the web browser of the online casino. Players only need one hand to play the online casino games leaving them free to pet their cat, drink their coffee or nosh on the different feel good foods that they have around the house of office or where they have chosen to access the online casino from.
