Helpful COVID-19 Quickies and Cute Animal… Saturday?

Need some cute animals? (Thanks to Muscadine, catherwood, and everyone else who sends me cool stuff!)

Featured image is another of Macey and Luna. I’m still too lazy to search for Creative Commons and Public Domain pictures of animals. If you want YOUR pet featured, go ahead and send them to me with permission to post!

The CDC (or FEMA, which seems to have been utterly useless in all this) should distribute about 4 billion masks with “Don’t Shoot!” printed on them. (A box of a dozen to everyone in the country.)

    1. Thank you, Buzz! I saw his tweet about that… I’m glad there’s a whole article. I can see it, but it’s early in the month so I probably haven’t run out of my “free” ones yet. I’ll see if I can find out about the Contact form…
