Sweet Molly hasn't been a part of our home for nearly a decade.
Oh how I wish she was still with us, to share our home, during these Shelter in Place Times.
Scott looks like he's torturing her ears, but she was happy in this photo. Molly's ears were like a baby's blankie. Stroking those velvety ears could lower your blood pressure in a minute.
Scott and Chali's Lola, hasn't curled up on our sofa in about 3 years.
She moved to California with her parents.
Josie was a little kitten when she first spent time in our house.
Now she's a big girl in Oregon, with Heidi and Jamie. Don and I have to get our pet fixes from text photos and Zoom times.
Why No Pet?
People have asked for years if Don and I would get another pet. All my siblings have dogs. It seems like we should, but I always answer. "Not with our traveling." Most years, we've been we've been gone 1 week a month. Now, with cancelled trips, it makes me yearn for a pet. Especially one that wants to be patted all day long.
I wonder about all the pets right now. I think family dogs and cats, must be liking this sheltering time. Cats might be less thrilled, but most dogs probably love the extra attention and walks.
How are these pets going to be, when stay at home restrictions are lifted? Are there going to be a lot of depressed animals?
With all my home time, I now have time to worry about pets adjusting AFTER Covid! And with the latest news, I now have to worry about the pets getting Covid! Yikes!
There is no end to the worrying!
Cancer - Covid
I started this complaining list/blog, in May 2016. I posted 200 gripes about my breast cancer and then I was done.
On March 13, 2020, I started venting all over again, when another disease (starting with a C) interfered with my life. Only this time, it was affecting more than me.
Coronavirus and Cancer! Both are evil, but neither can totally get me down... if I vent! I hope with Covid, I run out of complaints before 200!
