Happy Mother’s Day to All the Moms of Human and Furry Children!
Mother’s Day is a bit of a bittersweet holiday for me. My mother passed away in 1994, but even after all these years, I still feel a pang when I see Mother’s Day cards appear in stores.
I owe many things to my mom, but the two most important ones are my love of cats, and my love of books. Even though we didn’t have cats when I was growing up, my mom was a cat lover. The photo below shows her with Feebee, my first cat. I have a lot of photos of my mom, and I’m not sure she’d be all that happy with me sharing this particular one, but of all the photos I have, this slightly blurry one, caught in a moment when she thought no one was paying attention, is one of my favorites.
Today will be a day of memories of my mom for me, and a day of gratitude for all she gave me. I love you, Mom.
Whether you’re the mom of human or feline children, enjoy your special day!
