Cats take cue from sidewalk markers to practice proper 'social distancing' in QC

A group of cats chilling in a sidewalk in Barangay Holy Spirit, Quezon City seemed to have no problem with social distancing.

Photos shared by resident Coleen Joice Aquino showed three kitties perched comfortably within the small, circular markers painted on the sidewalk.

The circles are used to keep people at least one meter away from each as an attempt to prevent the spread of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).

Aquino said the cats were a bunch of strays who kept coming back to the same spot, looking for food.

Netizens gushed over how "disciplined" the cats were being, unlike some humans who have been violating quarantine regulations.

Metro Manila remains under enhanced community quarantine aimed at containing the spread of COVID-19.

There have so far been 11,618 confirmed cases in the Philippines.
