Mother’s Day is still a bit of a bittersweet holiday for me. Even though my mother passed away 22 years ago, I still feel a pang each year when Mother’s Day cards start appearing in stores.
I owe so 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. Of all my cats, she only met Feebee, my first cat. The photo below shows her with him. 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.
Whether you’re the mom of human or feline children, enjoy your special day. And if your mom is no longer with you, I hope today is filled with wonderful memories of your time together.
