Animals are not affected physically by the CV19 virus. But are they affected mentally by it? I think they know something is going on.
We are half way through a 14 day self isolation after returning from Florida. Our little dog June has enjoyed getting out with us for longer walks and she likes having us around more. But a couple of days ago she started to behave in an unusual way. She wanted to lie down on the floor, at our feet, under the kitchen table.
When we first got home from Florida and started our 14 day self isolation she was napping in her usual spot on the chaise. She likes this chaise as she can monitor all the squirrel activity out of the kitchen window.
But now she does not want to be as independent. She wants to be close by. So I moved her little bed closer to the kitchen table and she seems to be happy there.
Another friend has told me her little dog follows her around all over the apartment and is not willing to leave her side. My daughter said their dog has allergies and they are usually stress related for this dog. So she thinks he may be stressed.
If you have pets have you found them to be reacting to the lockdown or isolation?
I’d love to hear from you!
