Still the mommy!

Every so often (at least once a week!), Grace asserts her mommy-status. Here she is giving Ruse's head a bath!


And here she is holding him down so she can finish her job!! What a good mommy-cat!


I took these photos with my cell phone's camera - lower resolution than my Olympus has, but catching these two "in the moment" was important!!

Hi Mommy!!!
We miss you so, so much!
::sniff::YOU ALWAYS LOVED FOSTER BEST!!

(Just because you have such a posh, intellectual name now, remember! I knew you back in the day, 'bro!)

I'm being good, Mommy. I see to Marigold's grooming regularly, and I never miss behind her ears...but..::sniff:sniff:: SHE MISSES MY EARS!!

Waiting and hoping the day comes when we see you again!

Your Very Own Tittiy Kittie,
Brutus

Grace is a very good mum. We bath each other, but if I get a bit wriggly, Eric holds me down with his paw.

Godiva asserts her mommycat status on Cocoa nearly daily. She actually pins her down to clean her face!

Love the paw to hold him down! Tasha does that to me (Gypsy) sometimes, 'cos she likes to be thorough (even if she's only my little sister!). Glad to see I'm not the only one...

The photos of Grace cleaning her head are so precious! I just love the amazing stuff these creatures come up with!

Check out my blog about a colony of abandoned/feral cats near my home. There will be stories there as time goes on that could inspire and inform anyone you know who wants to help homeless cats.

Would you add me to your blog list?

Thank you,
