  1. I had to go to work regardless because I’m a first responder but I always manage to spend a lot of time with my two cats. In fact that was my reason for getting two in the first place so they could keep each other company when I’m at work. They’re now eleven years old and I’ve had them since they eight weeks old and they fight, wrestle and play with each other like they week eight weeks old!
