As the world adjusts itself to social distancing rules or circuit breaking rules (hint Singapore), netizens around the world took to social media, sharing images of animals adhering to social distancing rules much better than human beings.

The images, which were collated by Bored Panda, witnessed images of cats, birds and other animals caught at the right moment to show them adhering to social distancing rules, as suggested by the World Health Organisation (WHO).

Amongst the images featured in the article was a clowder of cats lazing on top of a roof in an unknown location. Practising the one-metre rule, the cats distanced themselves according to their respective roof tiles.

That’s what we call a fe-line. Get it?

Another image featured a clowder of cats lining up to enter a shop premise in Japan.

Talk about picture purr-fect.

Cats aren’t the only animals taking precaution during the Covid-19 outbreak, other animals are also joining in on the action.

Even dogs and ducks want a piece of the action.

Evidently, according to Psychology Today‘s Dr Daniel Marston, “Animal species will often force members to socially distance themselves as a way of keeping ill members from being around others.”

“Animals instinctually recognize when other members have diseases that could be passed on to other members of the group and will direct those members to separate from the larger group to protect members from catching the disease.”

“They will still provide food and support but will require them to distance themselves from the larger group.”

It is good to understand that what the animals are doing is more than just a mere coincidence.

In our opinion, animals are way better at social distancing than some of us!
