Chloë Gets Bored

Looking for squirrels in all the wrong places.

I wish I had something more exciting to tell you, but I don’t. This shelter-in-place thing has limitations. Afternoon naps are nice, but how many Law & Order and NCIS reruns can I stand? I’d like some more action!

Mike and Heather never take me anywhere anymore. One day we drove to Carkeek Park, and for an exciting half-hour I could fetch my ball caroming off the Rock. That was fun. Other than that, every day it’s back and forth into the park across the street. Same old, same old.

Video chatting in the office.

MI realize that they try to take me on a different route every day, but there’s only so much they can do.  I’ve been walking these grounds for 10 years,  so I already know what it smells like, by heart. The big excitement of the past two weeks, other than checking culverts for squirrels, was walking the road from the park entrance to the parking lot, now closed off to cars. By the third time we did it, it was already no big deal.

When the social highlight of the week is sitting in front of the computer for a video chat with Heather’s family, you get the drift. My life has gotten boring. While they chattered away, all I could do was dream. Wake me up when this is over.

Resting with Lamby.

  1. We, George’s humans, play hide and seek with him in the house to stir things up a bit. As a deaf cat, he doesn’t care for walks, and his napping routine hasn’t suffered at all. Plus we are catching up on shows we have missed on Thirteen.org since we don’t have cable TV. Be well!
