Tippering In Place #Caturday #TipperAndChickie

Hi, there! I’m Tipper Allen, and guess what? Momma says we’re sheltering in place! I didn’t know that’s what it was called. I thought it was just being regular!

Momma says some hoomans don’t know what to do with themselves while they shelter in place, so I thought I’d give them some ideas.

Have your momma get out a box of toys you haven’t played with for a long time.
Hang out with the people you live with, or talk to a neighbor at a safe distance.
Stretch. Sleep.
Tell the cat he’s good and clever and beautiful.

A WRITING PROMPT FOR ANIMALS: Do you like to play with your old toys after you ignore them a while?

I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    I hurt my biceps tendon earlier this week. It is taking a long time to get better, and I’m constantly afraid I’ll reinjure it. I am gently stretching it, and doing some light isometrics, but sleeping has been a problem, and it just keeps reminding me how slowly I heal compared to normals. But I don’t HAVE to do anything, so it isn’t as bad as it COULD be.

    Tell the cats they’re beautiful, even if they already know it.

      They surely DO know it, but I tell them all the time, anyway. šŸ™‚ You take special care of yourself. Virtual hugs!

    Excellent advice, Tipper. My guys are all currently spread out through the house, practising the stretching and sleeping thing. We went out for our morning pee walk, and it was so cold out there none of us wanted to stay for long. Inside with the heater is best. šŸ™‚

    Stay happy and well Tipper. Hugs to you, Chickie and your Momma. šŸ™‚

      Tipper is doing his level best to shelter me in place by climbing into my lap and pinning me to my office chair. I’ve gotten more work done due to cat power than will power.

    All of these are good tip, Tipper, especially the last one. You’re a good kitty-boy.

      He’s my best kitty-boy. He’s very proud of the assurance that he’s a much better boy than Miss Chickie.
