Spending Time with Pets During Quarantine

The early days of the pandemic found many people isolating themselves away from almost everyone except those they lived with. While this initially caused a spiral into melancholy and depression, it also served as a way for people to self-reflect without the presence of any distractions. This time to reflect resulted in a better quality of life that continues as we try to move on from COVID-19.

Because her owners were home 24/7 during the pandemic, constant companionship was able to heal her old wounds."
