Mom’s Day

It’s a BIG day………I know there are some of you humans out there who have pets and don’t consider yourself a “Mom” or a “Dad” – you’re caretakers of your pets – but my Mom is much more than a caretaker…..she truly is my Mom (without a meow).   I was only a few weeks old when I was pulled out from under a house and taken to the shelter – luckily I was only there a few days when a nice couple of humans came in and saw me in my tiny cage pushing a little plastic ball with a bell inside all around my two foot square “jail cell” !  Those two people became my Mom and Dad that very day.  They’re all I’ve known in the way of family and all I remember – after thirteen years of love, they ARE my parents.

Neither my Mom nor my Dad have Moms who are still here…….in fact, they don’t have either their Moms or their Dads any more……..I’m their only “child” too as they never had human children of their own.   I guess we just might have a pretty special relationship because of that.

I got my Dad to help me put some photos together of my Mom – not a lot – just a few – so you can see that my Mom ALWAYS has a smile on her face – to me, her smile has always meant “LOVE” …….

So, you can imagine that Mother’s Day in my house is SPECIAL.   I’m going to spend all day today showing my Mom how much I love her………..I don’t think she’ll mind that ONE BIT – do you????

    That’s really a special day in your house and that’s such a great post, I have some tears in my eyes. What a wonderful way to say I love you, mom. Thanks for sharing this wonderful pictures with me (your mom is super cute and your granny is just beautiful). Have a fabulous mom’s day :o)

      Hi Easy! Well I think you gave your Mom a MOST SPECIAL squeaky gift for Mom’s Day during the night. No doubt she was MOST appreciative of it and will give you some special treat today as a THANK YOU! I’m glad you liked the pictures of my smiley Mom and while I never knew my Granny, I think she was pretty too. I hope you have a most special day in your crib – be sure and give your Mom lots of cuddles and hugs and perhaps later you could bring in a gift from outside? Maybe a nice big dirty stick or mouthful of grass salad ?????

      Happy Mom’s Day to your Mom and Happy Sunday to you!

        I’ve found a roadkilled frog – sadly he was still a part of the pavement… but I bookmarked the place – in june is Father’s Day :o)

          Oh Easy GOOD FOR YOU!!!! By June that roadkill should be nice and crispy – I’m sure your Dad will REALLY appreciate that gift!! (perhaps froggy omelettes for Father’s Day breakfast?????) Please check that frog next time you see him though – I hope it wasn’t Freddy (my friend who hasn’t shown up yet at my house) – – – he might have hopped an airplane ride and wound up in your neighborhood!!! EEEEEEEEEEEEK!

    Sammy, please tell your mommy that me and my mommy wish her a Happy Mothers Day. My mommy agrees with your mommy. She said much the same regarding her furbaby, ME! in her human blog yesterday.She has declared many times that we furbabies are members of the family and our family status is just like children. Perpetual toddlers. Always loved, and loving and trusting to our parents. She has three human sons but I am her daughter..her baby girl–loved and cared for.

      Hi Cody! I’m so glad you liked my post for my Mama. I just loved that photo of you and your Mommy on your blog today – we’re both VERY lucky boys aren’t we? The old photos of my Mom are a hoot aren’t they? My Mom said that her Mom told her once that when she was young (like in that old photo of her), people often mistook her for Veronica Lake – isn’t that way cool??? When it came to getting Moms, we REALLY hit the jackpot I’d say. I hope you and Dakota give your Mommy lots of love today especially – and please give her a special Mom’s Day hug from ME and one from my Mom too OK????

      Oh Nissy I know you’re trying to be good but it must be rather BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOORING being in the crate or off your “feet” while you get better – and your Mom is trying to look out for you as best she can. I’m glad you’re giving it your best shot though so she can relax and enjoy her day. Hope the healing’s coming along nicely my good buddy.
