Streamline International’s CEO Brings Home a Furry Friend

Stress relievers and relaxation is always a good thing. Especially with our schedule being super busy and as we are always on the go, coming home to relax, recharge and spend time with loved ones is always the best mental boost. Recently Streamline International’s CEO, Ben Streames has brought home a new furry, adorable friend. He’s gotten a cat and as animal lovers would know — it’s one of the best feelings. “When I first decided to get a pet I didn’t consider much except the fact that animals end up becoming lifelong friends. Recently, I’ve discovered that they are much more. Scientific research also proves to show that owning pets such as dogs and cats help reduce stress and numerous other factors,” says Ben Streames, managing director of Streamline International. According to, the article “Top 10 Health Benefits of Owning a Cat” it writes, “They’re fluffy, independent and affectionate, and while cats require much less attention than dogs and often keep to themselves, owning a cat or kitten can provide multiple benefits for your health. Whether you own a friendly lap cat or a quiet introvert, the sense of companionship and love you have for your pet can be just as enriching as any other friendship.”


“There are some really interesting things to be learned and advantages that happen to us when we own animals and cats in general. It’s surprising and very helpful to have and be able to do this,” says Ben Streames of Streamline International. In this article, it mentions some points such as being a cat owner helps with decreasing stress, strokes, and blood pressure. It also talks about increasing sociability and providing companionship. “Cat ownership provides a natural conversation starter and can enhance the owner’s ability to socialize. One study revealed that women were more attracted to men who owned cats because cat ownership often suggests sensitivity and intelligence.” “Owning a cat reduces feelings of loneliness. Though cats are often known for their independence, the bond between a cat and its owner reinforces companionship. A Swiss study conducted in 2003 revealed that owning a cat is similar to having a romantic partner.”


At Streamline International, we would encourage all of our representatives to look into getting an animal, yes it may be some extra work but in comparison to the benefits on our health and mental aspect — it’s something to consider. We especially appreciate that studies show having a cat is something that helps you in most aspects of your life. “Whether it may be physical or mental stress, anxiety, or anything troubling you, we’re pretty sure that having a cat can help with easing that and giving you a friend away from a busy environment,” says Ben Streames of Streamline International.
