Finding a new normal for both of you: how to stay busy with your cat during the quarantine:
Since our daily lives are now disrupted with the new social distancing and quarantining, our cats may wonder why we’re at home so much now. They must feel that even their routines are being disrupted! While this current situation is hopefully short-lived, finding ways to keep kitties busy and off your laptop can be challenging. I worked from home for 20 years and struggled with this with my cats. Depending on your cat’s personality, they may welcome or dislike your presence at home during the day.
It’s important to keep a good balance for both of you. Humans thrive on routine, and a distracting cat can throw off our focus for the whole day. Similarly, some cats may feel like their personal time is being invaded if we’re constantly disturbing their nap times. I’ve compiled a top ten list of cat-ivities to keep them busy or distracted while you try to get that report in on time!
