I put masks on my cats

Didnít work out too well my cats instantly rebelled telling me to F off to put it simply. The cats said heck no to social distancing they were all sleeping in a ball in defiance of what I mandated. Those ungrateful felines I feed them good quality food and they live indoors. They told me we rule you, you donít rule us. And you are not the king and you will not have youíre name on all of our stimulus bags of cat food. They informed me since I can operate a windows system doesnít make me an expert on world health. The cats tore apart those masks and now Iím powerless. So I just ride my bike ..

I haven't tried a cat mask, but Latte is pretty calm with just about anything I do to her.



We have Nemisis that comes around every once in a while.



I'm not too sure what his story is, but Latte and Nemesis don't get along, so "social distancing" is just fine.

There's the phrase "Herding cats." After this thing, there'll have to be another one: "Masking cats."

There are three things I don't do: skydiving out of a perfectly good airplane; seeing how long I can hold my hand over a flame; and, attempting to force a feline to do what said feline doesn't want to do.

I'm good with that.

Don't forget breading cats! No, not breeding, breading.

After a sweaty bike ride the cats make me a human popsicle. I have no choice in the matter. If I start growing fangs and start going meow and purring then I’m infected. So be it. I’m starting to crave tuna and sardines.

I think one of my cats has the covid. I thought she felt warm yesterday & one of her eyes was a little weepy. I wet a napkin & wiped it & it seemed better the rest of the day. but she doesn't have the usual spring in her step. she still purrs, eats, etc & goes out to hunt with her brothers. but she's a little off

A friend of mine had covid. Her cat got respiratory trouble a few days after she stared. They both recovered. He caught a rabbit this weekend.
