    One particularly adorable outlet people have been ~channeling their energy~ into is tic-tac-toe...with their pets!!!!!!!!

    “how’s self quarantine going?”

    Some have used food as a motivator for their four-legged competitors.

    And others have proved to be rather calculated with their strategy.

    Including this underdog, a Betta fish:

    please appreciate my tik tok of my betta fish beating me at tic tac toe

    Some other Power Players™ were this horse:

    And this turtle!!!!!!

    Other participants were — how do you say? — simply BEFUDDLED.

    So this virus 🦠 let me know my dog doesn’t know how to play tic tac toe 🤦🏿‍♂️❌⭕️❌

    And for others, things took an unprecedented turn.
