I am writing this post in honor of all mothers and especially those that are often overlooked on Mother's Day each year. If you have pets you are a mother they could not survive without you! I also wanted to share the love shown by some of the animal mothers' for their babies that I've seen around the world. The top photo is of an elephant mother with her baby that I saw in Tanzania at the Serengeti National Park.
My husband and I have also taken in several stray pregnant cats. We found homes for all of the babies and mothers including the seven orange ones in the second photo down. We actually kept the mothers - Princess (the black cat) and Peaches (orange cat) for ourselves.
More elephants in the Serengeti:
Monkeys in Bali:
Sled dog I saw in Alaska with her four day old pups:
I hope all of you have a wonderful day regardless whether you are a mother or not. Thank you so much for stopping by. Take care my friends!
