maintain a distance of at least one alligator between each other.
Officials all over the country can’t stop emphasizing the importance of practicing social distancing to slow down the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.
Now leaders in Leon County, Florida, are giving people an interesting visual to help them maintain the proper distance from others.
“This is a reminder that during COVID 19, please remember to keep at least 1 large alligator between you and everyone else at all times,” Leon County said on Facebook.
To slow the spread, officials are enforcing stay-at-home orders and urging citizens to practice social distancing, by standing 6 feet apart.
“i’m also fascinated by the difference between terror and fear.
fear says, “do not actually put your hand in the alligator,”
while terror says, “avoid florida entirely because alligators exist.”

During the BBC’s coverage of the ongoing cave rescue operation in Thailand, they came across this adorable cartoon by Bangkok-based illustrators Sisidea, which caught their attention after it was shared on Facebook by the Thai Navy Seal team.
This is what Aruni Aunhawarakorn and Jantima Manasviyoungkul (the people who drew the picture) had to say: “We are so, so happy at the news and our cartoon shows our appreciation from the Thai people – to everyone around the world who have been involved in the search as well as those [unsung heroes] who haven’t been mentioned.”
“from caring comes courage.”

this is jack. he got into a fight and ended up with a wound on his side. the vet suggested a shirt as a less stressful approach to keep him from chewing it, rather than a plastic cone.
fun fact: most cats fit into baby shirts sized 0-3 months.

i woke up in the middle of the night
to loud screaming
glen frey the cat not the rocker
who was downstairs
in my living room
but like a rocker
being attacked by something
expecting to find him
in a death match
massive rabid opossum
as i got closer
i saw who he was
was his own shadow.
running and running and running
in a circle
he was terrified
running for his own survival
i shut off the lights
called his name
talked to him
after a while
he calmed down
he laid down
i thought about
the many things
that he might have
had to endure
before he was rescued
that it all felt very real to him
as if those things were happening to him all over again
he was home
he was safe once more.
