Will owners who adopted dogs during thepandemic bring them back to shelters?

Unfortunately it would surprise me but I am also thinking about cats. On the national site I often check out, you can see the number of animals that are available for adoption ( even though this doesn’t really tell the whole story of course). But there was. moment earlier at end of 2020 or beginning 21 that the teller for cats had gone down to just under 100 cats. Recently I have noticed it’s steadily going back up again to numbers that it used to be, although it’s still not at it’s highest but it’s still back up to 140 already

In between new cats are born…

yes and unfortunately I think covid has also helped the increase as I have seen quite a few (more than usual) posts this last year for cats that have suddenly lost their owner and the family is trying to re-home them.
