With the pandemic, people everywhere are asking themselves essential questions: When will this be over? How can I protect myself? Do I have enough toilet paper?

But, why panic? What we're being asked to do isn’t all that hard. At least, that's what my cat said. That's when I got to thinking…maybe he's got some tips for us…he's already been in quarantine for 3,724 days, after all.

Tips from Whiskers:

Follow these and isolation will be a breeze!

1. Nap often

There's no better place than home to have a good nap. You have so many places to choose from: the bed, the sofa, right by the radiator…what’s to complain about?

2. Soak in that Vitamin D

See a sunbeam? Go lay in it. You'll see. It keeps you warm, enhances nap time quality by 156%, and it reminds your family that you are the light of their lives.

3. Keep a little kibble at the bottom of your bowl

Humans' bowls are called fridges. Be like cats, and don't eat everything in it all at once. Make sure you have leftovers to return to throughout the day.

4. Stay clean

It's not because you're home all day that you have to forget about personal hygiene. Gross.

5. Enjoy the small things in life

Sit by the window and look at the birds flying by. Spend some extra time with your loved ones. Go annoy the dog.

6. Remember it's ok to freak out

If it's all getting to be a little too much, feel free to run up and down the apartment like a crazy person, even if you wake your loved ones in the process. In a way, that's the whole point. Just don't forget to nap afterwards.

Yours sincerely, Whiskers
