Sunday Selfies: Week #196



I am here today, representing all the Kitties Blue, to wish our mom and all moms a Happy Mother’s Day. It doesn’t matter if you have human children or furry ones, you are special and important. As the main nurturers and caregivers, you should have more than one day each year set aside for us to honor you. But as this is the day the had been set aside…



I was actually sitting in our mom’s lap when I took today’s selfie. So, it seemed appropriate for today.

Mau gave me permission to repaint his poem for mom that he wrote a few years ago.


Mau’s Mother’s Day Poem

My mom is patient.
My mom is kind.
My mom loves me,
Even when I don’t mind.

My mom feeds me.
My mom gives me treats.
She rubs my belly,
And she kisses my feets.

My mom thinks only of me
When she helps me with Scouts,
And she doesn’t get mad,
Even when I pouts.

I love you Mom.
What more can I say?
You are the bestest mom
Each and everyday.

Astrid, You are simply *breath-taking*! Now, no need to be running off to tell Miss Misty May I said that, right? I mean, she is still the Most Beauteous and I send her thousands and thousands of kissies . . . but you know, Spitty’s a playa. Shhhhh, now.

We loved Mau’s beautiful poem. The Human asked me why I don’t write something like that for HER, but I just laughed. XOXOXOXO

Ooh, such a pretty picture of you!! (purring) My mom doesn’t like photos of herself, so seldom does selfies with me and when she does take selfies with me the lighting isn’t all that good. Tee hee hee. But I love her and sending kisses to all the mommas (those with furs or not) on Mother’s Day! Mew Mew!
