Sheba is a laid back cat and is a calming influence for her human when she is writing. Lockdown hasn't worried her as she doesn't like visitors at the best of times. They disrupt her routine, which as I wrote yesterday involves eating, having a roll in the sunshine and plenty of beauty sleep. Here is her strategy today for helping her humans deal with the virus: keep your human occupied. Ask for food, eat a seventh, walk away. With the hot weather attracting flies, he or she will be on the alert to whisk the dish into the fridge. Ten minutes later, cry plaintively for food, repeat and repeat...this procedure will keep therm occupied for quite a while. Wake them at five in the morning with meows and when they stumble downstairs, make for the back door. Once opened, have a peek outside and decide to go back to sleep. Find a shady spot in the garden hidden from view and go to sleep. Another way of keeping them occupied, searching for you. Tricks like these are sure to keep their minds from worrying about coronavirus and concentrated entirely on you.
