There are lessons to be learned from my 100% indoor cats. They never complain that they are self-isolating or quarantined. They are indoor cats because as their caretaker, their governor, I decided that the road outside the front door could kill them, the raccoons and foxes could eat them, and I did not want to take the risk of losing them. Protecting them is my job. They don’t complain. They don’t try to run away. They have adapted to their world as indoor cats. They exercise, they cuddle, they eat, and they safely socialize. Be like my cats! Stay indoors, and stay safe.
I have been working very hard to make sure that everyone stays in line while they are isolated in the house because of this scary COVID thing. It has been great fun to have all the humans at our beak & call (that means that they are our servants (but what else is new).
I have made it my job to occupy as many laps as I can throughout the day.
Noel here. Look, little Mini, it is “Beck and Call” and I am the only one that can tell the human’s what to do. I was here first, before all of you, and Mom’s lap is mine if I beckon. So back off and scat!!
Noel, the Christmas-cat, will be 13 years young on Tuesday. If you search ‘Noel’ on the sidebar, you will probably find more posts at the DogDaz Zoo on her then any of the other animals. Maybe because she is the oldest of the current pack, or maybe because she is so photogenic. I can’t believe that this little white terribly ill rescued kitten grew into this amazing white rabbit-fur purr machine. Noel has the Feline Herpes (FVR) virus, which almost left her blind. I had to carry her for a month close to my chest to keep her breathing and now look at her: Queen of the Zoo.
It appears that Noel pulled out a whole claw and now has a fungal infection going on. She did not like going to the doctor, but she was as good as gold. She even let them take her in the backroom and cut her nails. The pinky claw grew back thick and dark and I was worried it was going to turn into her pad. They cut it really short. Let’s see how it comes back in. She was happy to get home and go directly to sleep in Louise’s office bed.
