I introduced my mother, the concentration camp survivor in a previous post. This is the second Mothers' Day for me without my mother. Although I miss her, I appreciate everyday the gifts she gave me of life, attitude and education.

In this post I want to celebrate and introduce you to two other mothers. One is Misty, our 18.5 year old siamese cat and mother of 5. We found out recently that birds like fur to add to their nests so we cleaned out Misty's brushes and created a little fur-stop near the bird feeder. Pictured here is a humming bird mother zooming off with some of Misty's fur, which has become quite popular with many of the birds that live near us. Misty's new nickname is, "Bird, Bed, Bath and Beyond". ;-)
