I would like to wish you all Shavua Tov (a Good Week) - and I do wish it. However, there is no denying that these are hard times for us all, kitties and humans alike. This horrible Coronavirus is spreading all around the world, making lots of humans sick and many have even been called to their own Rainbow Bridge. As of tonight, there are 945 COVID-19 patients in Israel and although only one has died so far, that can't be expected to continue - besides which, the recovery rate in Israel seems to be lower than most of the rest of the world.
We hope and purray that YOUR humans are safe and well. We must look after them and make sure that, as well as staying healthy, they also stay cheerful. Of course, that doesn't always work. MY Mummy, for example, has been getting furry depressed these last few days. I have even noticed her eyes leaking quite a lot. Caspurr and Shimshi try to distract her by being furry, furry naughty, so She won't have time to think about anything else, but I am afraid that only makes her more upset. She says that She has enough to worry about these days, without their shenanigans. She, herself, is not sick but the government has issued emergency regulations and no-one is allowed to go out, except to buy essential items such as food and medicine, or to receive medical treatment, or to work in essential occupations, or a few other things (such as taking part in demonstrations, of all things!!! And also to take one's woofies for a walk). But even before the "recommendations" became "regulations", She was scared to go out for fear of catching this Dreadful Bug and now, She is afraid She will be spending the Seder night all on her own, because although She has plenty of family in Jerusalem, nobody is supposed to be going out of their own home, to reduce the risk of infection.
So I, Queen Trixie, have decided to dedicate our entry in the Caturday Art blog hop, hosted by the Wise and Beautiful Athena and her HuMum, Marie, to "feeling blue".
And here is the blog hop badge:
Below, you can see the original photo, with which We are taking part in the Sunday Selfies blog hope, hosted by the Kitties Blue (no pun intended) and their HuMom, Janet:
As you can see, I am looking wistful and pensive in this pawtrait, in solidarity with Mummy.
Mummy misses her caterwauling club and her archaeological field trips and her Bible and Mewsic lectures, and now She just heard on the news that there may very likely soon be a total curfew, like in Italy.
It is so miserable, you might be pardoned for fur-getting that yesterday was officially the furrst day of Spring!
Now, We must help Mummy have another go at making one more attempt at placing her online Pessach (Passover) order with the supermarket. She spent HOURS trying to do that this afternoon and then, just when she got to the checkout point, something went wrong and now, She doesn't know whether her order went through or not!!! Tomorrow, We hope to have more time to visit all Our Furriends.
Keep well, stay safe and look after your Humans. We love you all.
