SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 10 NATIONAL VANILLA CUPCAKE DAY Enjoy bite-size treats! Who says vanilla is boring? We asked Elise Strachan, author of Sweet!

“You won’t believe what Zeppi did today!” Sherri Franklin’s father crowed excitedly into the phone. “What did that silly cat do now?” Sherri asked with a smile, her heart swelling at the sound of her father’s laughter—a sound that, in the months since his retirement, had all but disappeared.

But one fateful day, a stray cat had appeared weaving its way through his legs…and into his heart. He’d never had a pet before, so Sherri was surprised by how quickly her father had taken to the stray cat—and how the cat took to him, returning…

According to a study conducted at the National University of Singapore, cuddling something furry—like a pet or a teddy bear—floods the brain with the feel-good hormone dopamine for an instant hit of happy.
