Happy Mother’s Day
It was spring 1994 when Katy was a very young mommy. This is Katy as she was approaching 17 years of age in 2011.
We met her in April of 1994 through HART (Homeless Animal Rescue Team). We were hoping to find 2 kittens, possibly siblings. We were led to Quantico, VA where the most wonderful and generous couple shared their home with lots of dogs, cats and bunnies. All were fosters, waiting for their forever homes.
We were taken down to the basement where there were cages and cages of kitties and bunnies. It was too much to take in and quite overwhelming, but I instantly fell in love with a 2-4 week old long haired kitten that turned out to be our Sam. At first we didn’t notice Katy in a cage directly below Sammy and his mom and sisters, but there she was. KATY.
Finally the time arrived for Sammy and Katy to come home with us. The photo above is at the foster home and was their very first face to face meeting.
The photo above are Katy’s kittens that she gave birth to. They were now ready to find their forever home. Sweetness. Good job Katy!
Katy loved being a mother, but when she came home with us she was pretty much done with that! But in her essence and deep in her soul, she is the ultimate mother.
We were blessed to have shared our home with her. She loved life, loved the sunshine, and had major “tor-a-tude”!
Happy Mother’s Day Katy and all the other animal mommies of the world. I celebrate you and the miracle of mother nature and all life.
