touching the face

#1 Post by Ritterskoop » Tue Mar 17, 2020 12:51 pm

I get it, if someone sneezes or coughs on my hands (which they can't, as I am too far away), and then I should not stick my finger in my eye.

But if I am at home, what's the big deal? The reason I never learned how to apply makeup was because I want to paw at my face like a pitcher going to his nose.

If I have to get one of those cones from the vet, I'd like to understand why.
