I’ve seen all the memes about dogs loving pandemic and cats not so much. This was true at our house for the first couple of months. Guinevere is SO happy to have YA and I at home all day long. More treats, more snuggling, pretty much more of everything she loves. Even more toys have been part of sheltering-in-place.
At first, Nimue wasn’t so sure about having us around so much. Then in April she had some surgery that had a good result (not cancerous) but had a long, hard recovery involving the cone of shame and the dog kennel for almost two full weeks. I thought she would never forgive me for that; the stink eye that she would give me from the dog kennel was really scary. Then about a week after she was freed from her cone/kennel disgrace, she started wanting more cuddling. And as the months have gone by, that has continued – whether or not I have any treats nearby.
She has even taken to hanging around wherever I am hanging around. The header photo is how she helps me in the kitchen. Here is her helping me straighten up in the dining room.
As I type, she’s snoozing on top of the radiator – about six feet away, so she is responsibly social distancing.
Do you know anyone enjoying pandemic more than they should?
