Let me think of all the cats and dogs that have been “abandoned” temporarily or forever by their Masters who were taken to hospital, and had to stay there for several weeks – or will never come back. They are in deep distress and their Masters too. The same misery as in the case of fire or flood or war. Of course children, relatives and friends are the main source of sorrow but to have to leave dear pets behind is additional grieve at a time when pets could provide comfort.
Let me give you a rapid translation of a comment left by Jean-Marc on my previous post « Anger », « Colère » in French
« I just want to understand. We have to go to work again but we must not move freely more than 100 km. You can pile up in a supermarket, but you can’t walk in the woods. A doctor will have to «report» the patients to the social security (well yes, see what has happened this day). They create «brigades», that word makes me shudder and makes me want to vomit. They want to make an app on the smartphones, don’t give a damn of privacy we have been spied on for a long-time, but for me the concern is more serious, it is the return of the yellow star, or of the years where they were considering to pen people with AIDS … and flatter the low instincts of pointing the finger at the ones to be set aside. It stinks … and I have dreaded it from the first day of the “M” election, you know, I’ve never hidden it. I wish I had had been wrong. Honestly. But the machine was running and it was just waiting for the right opportunity. The reality could get worse than my nightmare. »
