Necessity is the mother of invention. Quarantine is the mother of… TikToks?

People who can’t leave their homes due to coronavirus are turning to TikTok, the popular video-creation app, to document their confinement.

The results: a wild ride into the depths of resilience that the human spirit contains. People have long turned to laughter to cope when times got tough, and now, thanks to social media, it’s easier than ever to share that laughter with others.

Below, some of our favorite TikToks to come out of these unprecedentedly challenging times:

1. There are cats…

Some people’s pets are ecstatic to have their favorite humans around 24/7. Others… not so much.

2. …and dogs
