What’s it like having your humans, Indy photographer Daniel Dreifuss and his fiancée, Jessica, around so much? Do you like the company, or do you miss your space?  At first I was confused why they were home all the time, but I love to cuddle, so I’m pretty happy they’re spending more time here.

How has the lockdown affected your daily routine?  I get more treats when I scratch the scratching post, and I do enjoy that. I notice I’m spending more time on my mom or dad’s lap when they are using the computer talking to the screen. Sometimes I meow at the screen or rub my face against it to be helpful. I do the same amount of sleeping.

What is your favorite form of distraction while your parents are trying to work?  I really love looking out the window, so if it’s not open, I meow ’til they open it for me. I also love belly rubs and pets, and I demand those sometimes even if my parents are working. If they don’t pay attention to me, I just meow ’til they do.
