The Reluctant Mother's Day Participant

Ok, as you can see, Cody was a most UNWILLING Mother's Day participant.  Doesn't matter, I love him just the same.

Quite often, some of the best Moms
are NOT biological, and 
they don't have to be female.
Whomever or whatever it is
that you "mother" unconditionally,
YOU matter, YOU rock
We salute you and thank you!

Have a wonderful Mother's Day!

  2. We don't celebrate Mother's Day here (my human is more like my friend and personal assistant), but hope yours is awesome!

  3. We can't celebrate Mothers Day as sadly my Mum died early with cancer but we hope you all have a wonderful day.

  8. Such a cute collage indeed, in spite of the unwilling participant. Dad's mom passed away almost a year ago and he misses her tons. He says to cherish moms no matter what, for you never know when they'll be gone.

  20. I love the pictures - all of them. Even the reluctant Cody. It's so typical of a cat when you want them to cooperate. Otherwise, they are right in your face. Happy Mother's Day - furbabies are great!

    1. Ha!!! I am not even sure he was thinking that he loves me lol!!!! I was chasing him around all day yesterday trying to take pictures with him and he was not amused! Also, Dakota had gone to get groomed and had to have bloodwork done at the Vet and I kept mentioning the Vet, I think he thought he was going there next because he kept leaving! lol

  31. We can see your Mother's Day was happy and pawsome!

    While ours had to go to her work...she felt honored to be like a daughter to a whole lot of extra Moms and Grannies, as the residents she helps care for are dear to her; So we shared her:)

    Happy Mother's Day!

    We MOL'd at Cody...one of our unfurbros was like that a lot when he had to be in special pictures...he was and still is an imp!MOL!

    But you gotta love em like that don't ya! They are original in so many ways...and they know how to find the right buttons to press, LOL! (And when is the best time to act like that, tee hee!)

  35. Happy Mother's Day to a wonderful Mama!

    We so agree with you Caren! Being a mother for us means nurturing, loving , caring for and protecting another living being ; it doesn't simply mean birthing a living being.

    Cody, you always make our Mama smile! And Dakota , you look like a little angel in your photos. Lovely to see you too Caren :)

  39. Miz Caren, at least Cody cooperated by staying in your arms long enough for the photo to be taken. Small triumphs.
