We are so sad for humans. Even humans who are homebodies and don't love to go places (our mom is an example of that kind of human) really need to have the option of going places, if they want. And hugs. Humans need hugs from other humans. This is a terrible time for humans to be humans. Felines, on the other hand, are very happy and content. In fact, furs love the pandemic, because humans stay at home more. We worry for the furs who are getting used to having their humans around all the time. Because, after the vaccine, and after treatments that actually work to cure the virus, are found and the panic about the pandemic goes away, humans will go back out again -- to travel, work, shop, and play -- and many furs will experience separation anxiety. That makes us sad for furs, but we know that will happen someday. Please tell your pawpaw to hold onto that thought. This won't last forever. In retrospect, it will seem like the blink of an eye. The toughest part is that there is no date given for the end of this. That means humans have to keep holding their breath and being fearful. But we know there will be very good news someday, and all humans will be able to relax again, and life will start again -- better than before, because humans will appreciate it even more. And regarding meds: we're grateful your pawpaw is getting the help he needs to get through this. He WILL get through this. We promise him that. We will all get through this together, says our mom. And we believe her.

It’s a tough time for most people. Sadly it seems to be harder on those of us who are following the rules.
Mom says she wishes there were somewhere else she could go, but she only has one house and this is it. She says a change of scenery would help and maybe it would, but she didn’t buy the beach house years ago and now she can’t afford it.
No one has been in our house except me and mom and that’s the way it going to stay. There are lots of things she’d she’d like to do and people she’d like to see. instead we’re here.
Sometimes the neighbors stop over for a driveway chat, but that doesn’t do much for her.
Lots of things she’d like to have done around the house, but that’s not happening any time soon either.
Mom says what she misses most is hugs. I try to snuggle with her as much as I can and I purr a lot too. You just have to do what you can to bring your humans some smiles.
I hope your pawpaw knows that he’s doing what needs to be done to try to keep us all safe. And me and mom appreciate it.
Our meowmie is worried about Paw Paw. He is not handling this pandemic stress well at all. He is so stressed out at times that he goes into the room and just "let's go of his emotions". Paw Paw needs more than we can give him. He is already on mild sedatives and just got placed on stronger ones. Our poor Paw paw we is so worried at times about him an meowmie.
Please say purrs for them they need it, especially our Paw Paw.
