A nice collection of short stories inspired by recent events. Some of the stories are of the science fiction genre, others are just dark or humorous tales with or without relation to the current moment, but most were written under orders of “quarantine” during the unusual “pandemic” period that started on February 2020 and still continues on March 2021.

Why do we love pets? When were dogs domesticated? Is it true that cats were sacred in Egypt? What happened to pedigree dogs during the French Revolution? Were black cats persecuted during the Middle Ages? What happened to Laika and other space pets? Can you clone your pet after he dies? How will pets be in the future? This fascinating book will take you through a journey along the history of our relationship with our furry friends, from before domestication to the latest trends in pet ownership.
