I hope you’re doing well in these trying times. What I’m trying to do with my time is encourage the humans in my house to Stretch more. Whenever I see them coming, I stretch my paws out in front of me as an example of how to do it, but I am miaowing up the wrong tree because I am ignored. And then they complain that they’re stiff and have aches and pains because they can’t go outside, the poor things.
Talking of stretching, they’re also putting on weight because they’re wearing ‘leisure gear’ all the time which stretches as their stomachs expand. When the humans go back to work, the next epidemic will be of broken zips and buttons flying off garments. Serves them right for letting their standards slip. I only wish I could sew because I would make myself useful and comes to their rescue. Instead I will miaow quietly to myself and practice being asleep.
Apparently, this pandemic has led to pandemonium in the stock markets. People don’t have as much money as they used to have, but no one has stolen it, it’s just gone away. This has made some people very sad. I say that you shouldn’t be reliant for your Happiness on other things. True happiness comes from within. Or from watching a cat video.
Miaoowwwwww for now.
