Covid 19 has got the world and work on hold. Due to world experiencing major lockdowns and social distancing, people are not able to leave their homes for work or daily chores. Amongst others, pets are facing hard times. They are experiencing depression, mood swings like their humans. They do not have space to go out and experience outside weather.
This is more troublesome for pets than humans. Humans understand what is going around but how will pets fathom what the world has come to?
All day attention
Pet parents are going through difficulties in tackling their pets during this time. And the struggle is everyday and everywhere in the world whatever be the economic or weather conditions of a home. According to PetStruggles, the pets are suffering too, and the pet parents are further struggling to cope with it. Their job requires them to be up all night, pay attention to the pets all day long. Basically revolve their world around the pet and its needs.
They need cuddles even when the human doesn’t fee like. Humans will be pawed if the pet wants to do it. And weather or mood doesn’t stop them. If there is winter around, then it seems fine. But in summers and overheat conditions, the pets mostly the dogs turn into a hot pocket during heat season.
Parents fear they may overheat from their pet’s cuddle call, but they must endure.
Safety and Cleanliness
Pets need to be given bath, scratched, cuddles and sometimes the cuticles ache after scratching the pet too much. Now the salons are closed then one will need to take manicure at home. It is more of a necessity right now due to germs and infections rather than vanity. Pet parents need to take care of their well being too, while caring for the pet.
Pet toys need to be kept clean too and there is no one to help right now. So the parents will need to care about the accessories and toys.
Pets bring a lot of joy for their humans but they also bring poop! The parents need to pick up poops big and small. Sometimes it is massive and it doesn’t make sense but there is no looking away. Parents need to take care of their kid and the environment regularly and sometimes many times in a day.
It is not easy to be a pet parent right now but the pets are the best people to have close in these uncertain times due to the unconditional love they give to their humans.
