Mother's Day

I was all ready to go with another post when I remembered that tomorrow is Mother's Day.

Now, when it comes to cats, we don't celebrate Mother's Day--at least, not in the biological sense, that is. We know we had mothers, but we don't keep in touch after we're off on our own, although I would love to have known who she was.

Boy, do I have a mother now, though! Actually, make that a mother and two Fathers. Quite a crowd when it comes to celebrating, too. I try to give Mary Lou gifts every day of the year and, yes, the priests do give her something from me, all fancy-like. It's our form of group hugging.

If you have a mother to remember tomorrow, that's great. If not, think of those who have been like a mother to you and give them a big old smackeroonie or a heartfelt meow with a card.

I want to wish everyone a happy Mother's Day with one of my special occasion limericks:

There's no mother quite like Mary Lou
My care becomes quite a to-do
She spoils me quite rotten
I'm sure she's besotten
No cat rules a kingdom so true!

Just don't let the priests see this 'cause I'll never live it down. Mary Lou will think it's cute.

You're pretty poetic yourself, Brian! What nice things to say.
