"LOCKED DOWN: Cats Write Pandemic Poetry” is a fun book that I wrote in a weekend when I asked myself how our cats are reacting to being locked down with us. Would they become jerks . . . or would they morph into kind kitties just as worried as we are about the state of the world? As one of my book’s reviewers says: “Who knew cats liked to sing duets, had food anxiety dreams, talked to goldfish, rode Roombas, and worried about sanitizing?” In poems and photos —some humorous, some touching — cats tell us what being locked down with us is like for them.
