Hi Blog Friends!
Hi, Blog Friends, it's me, Dancer! When Mummy told me that there is a scary virus going around that is making a lot of people ill, I didn't get too worried. Because I knew that my Mummy will take good care of me and keep me safe.
Even when she said that we all needed to stay at home to make sure we don't get infected by the virus or give it to anyone else, I didn't get too worried. I reminded Mummy that I stay home, anyway, because I am an indoor cat and, although I would like to go outside, sometimes, to play with all those garden cats who call me to come out to play with them, she doesn't allow me to go outside and scolds me when I try to sneak out!
But, when Mummy said we should "shelter in place", I thought she meant I should do this:
|"Shelter in place like this?"|
Then, she explained that it meant we should simply stay at home, without going to too many places where there are lots of people and people should maintain some distance from other people to prevent the spread of the virus from one person to another. Well, that's alright, then; I usually hide under the bed to avoid people when they come to our house, anyway!
Mummy also said that a lot of people are feeling worried and anxious about how quickly the virus has been spreading and all the changes it has made in their lives, including not being able to go to work. That made me feel sad.
Mummy said that a lot of people are feeling stressed trying to cope with the impact of the virus. I asked Mummy what I could do to help, because, as you all know, I like to help. Mummy said that maybe I could share some tips on how to cope with the stress. Apparently, a lot of people, including herself, are having trouble with sleeping. Well, you know that I like to sleep and I have no trouble sleeping. So, here's my first tip on how to cope with Covid-19 (that's the name people have given this virus).
Dancer's Covid-19 Coping Tip #1: Afternoon naps on the sofa in the sunshine!
|Dancer's Tip #1|
(Mummy's note: Dancer must have dreamt that he was fighting the Covid-19 virus because he woke from this nap with a start and hissed! Then, he looked around rather confusedly, and went back to sleep!)
So, don't worry, friends, we are in this virus pandemic together and we will get through it, together. Mummy said that if my blog friends like my helpful tips, I may post more of my tips for coping in the coming days and weeks. Hope you sleep well, tonight. But, if not, hope this tip about naps will help.
