The mask restrictions have loosened. The country, state by state, has pulled out of the restrictive horrors of COVID 19. Masks – still lifesavers -- are no longer necessary outdoors, and with a few exceptions, indoors. Businesses can set their own restrictions, and the cats couldn’t be happier. But some are understandably a little concerned and keep those masks close at hand, er, paw. After all, there might be more variants! Here, in gorgeous photos and clever text, a passel of cats tell the world what it’s like for them to be without face coverings after a very long time not showing their gorgeous pusses to the world. So come along with them as they gather for lunch, do tai chi, party, have fisticuffs in the back yard, and take a road trip, completely maskless!
