Battling a nasty flu for the last week, I was going a bit stir-crazy.
Today, is my first day (in seven) to crawl out from underneath the covers and walk outside my apartment!
So,having been cooped up this long, I’ve developed a newfound appreciation for animals in cages; especially, our pet peacock & peahens.
They don’t get out much — because they need constant supervision - but one of first things they do after they stretch their wings, is go for the cat food.
Initially, this used to offend Pinnicho our-cat-in-a-dog suit & he’d drive them away or look to me, with disbelief, to do something about it.
But, now, that my feathered friends are bigger than he is & have been around for two years, he’s made peace with their existence & shared tastes.
Especially, if it’s a sunny day :)
I appreciate that I don’t have to play referee, anymore, and that we can all get along, most days.
Now, if only humans might learn this lesson...
Stay healthy & try to get out more often 🙏🏼
