Domestic cats and dogs may have to be vaccinated in the future against Covid-19 to protect people

This is a quick note but one worth making nonetheless. I think I can predict that in the long term, perhaps in about 18 months to 2 years time, governments in various countries, perhaps predominantly in the West, will be thinking about vaccinating companion animals as a second phase protective measure against Covid-19.  This is because there is a concern amongst some scientists that animals may create a reservoir for mutant variants of the Covid-19 virus. As the virus is zoonotic it can theoretically and actually be transmitted from animals to people and this must apply also to companion animals.

In addition nobody wants to alarm anybody which may lead to companion animal abuse. In fact, in China, at the outset of the pandemic, there were

Get a boyfriend who likes cats



Elisa recently posted an article about Domestic Abuse and Pets. This is an important article because, as she says, it is quite commonplace.

One aspect of these horrible examples of the dysfunctional male human is the way that they want to hurt the cat. One reason could be because they want to hurt the girlfriend by hurting the girlfriend's cat. It is easier to hurt the more vulnerable creature, a sign of a weak and insecure man.

However, another reason might be that men are jealous of their girlfriend's cat! This may sound a bit far fetched but I feel it is correct. This is not the only reason for hurting the cat but it is certainly one strong possibility.

Women become very attached to their cats (men too, in fact). And cats are better behaved than men! They are more reliable. They are always there for you and no problems. There is a calm predictability and gentleness about a relationship with a cat that a woman cannot find with a man...but there are somethings that cat's can't do....

If a relationship between a man and a woman begins to break down, the woman might seek solace in her cat companion. A perfectly natural thing to do, but it exposes and highlights the dysfunctional male's inadequacies.

This will wind-up Mr. Dysfunctional and Mr. Angry and bingo...you have violence against the woman's cat companion.

man and catIs it possible that a woman's cat gets in the way of her relationship with the boyfriend, at least sometimes? Certainly, if the relationship is weak a cat's presence will help open the fissure that signals the end of the relationship.

Cats are a competitor to the boyfriend. If the boyfriend does not like cats - and the male human is less likely to like cats than a woman - the cat may be the cause of discussion or argument. "You prefer your cat to me!" Answer, "Yes, he is better than you".

If a woman loves cats and is a cat guardian she should make sure her boyfriend likes cats too. If not dump him quick. A boyfriend who likes cats will be a better person anyway.
