CDC, you say "treat pets as you would other humans?" If that doesn't scream "put a cute mask on your pet to make them both safe AND stylish," then I don't know what that means.

The North Vernon Plain Dealer & Sun mascot, Edipurr-in-Chief (Edi, for short) is not the best follower of social distancing guidelines. It was past time for her to mask up, and it was up to me to help her.

I prepared for this endeavor by taking an allergy pill and dressing in cat-themed clothing to make myself the ultimate ally to cat-kind (also because most of my clothes are cat-themed due to being a 'Crazy Cat Lady').

Armed with sheer determination and a mask, I was ready. Although I wish I owned a pair of leather gloves.
I found Edi lounging in her favorite spot - in our ad representative, Sue's office on a scratch pad.

Then, with a speed I didn't realize I had - I deftly slipped the mask over her tiny kitty face and loosely tied the back.

Edi didn't have the time to comprehend what had befallen her. She was now safe.

You're welcome, Edi. I love your precious little kitty face.
