Recent Survey Says Cats Are "Quarantine Heroes"

According to Royal Canin's new survey, cats are being defined as "Quarantine Heroes" during these uncertain times.  

Royal Canin, a global cat food company, asked 2,000 American cat owners, in a recent survey, about the relationships with their cats during these difficult past few months (quarantine and other subjects). 

The survey shows that more than half (57%) of cat owners felt less alone during quarantine and 49% of cat owners stated their cats helped reduce their anxiety. 

That's not all, the study revealed! 64% of cat owners shared that they got closer to their beloved feline during that time and discovered new places their cats like to explore/hang out. And within that same group, 54% found their cat's a new favorite food, and 34% came up with new games! 

When spending so much time at home, a total of 76% of cat owners claimed to feel much closer to their pets now. And beautifully, 61% of the conducted survey actually went out to adopt or foster a pet during the quarantine. How wonderful is that? Remember, if you're thinking of getting a pet, please consider adopting and not shopping.

Adorable Comic of Timid Sheep Is Truly Relatable

Mateus Inks is a comic artist from Texas. The comic is about an adorable and timid sheep with a funny name, Marengo Lambert. He strives and fights to overcome his insecurities. Throughout the comics, you see him advance and get closer to his goals and increase his confidence! Inks told Cheezburger, "My comics mainly focus on social anxiety [...] I started a few months ago, and my comics seem to be gaining some steam. I come from a boring office job but was originally an art student, so this is just my way of expressing myself again." And his comics say it all!
