Tama-Chan: Motherhood is an odd thing, isn't it? When my kits were three months old and three of them went off to other homes, Bibi stayed behind and I made it quite clear to him that he had to grow up and become a strong mancat, without hanging on to his mother's furs. I am glad to say that he has done rather well, with a lot of help from Tommy. However, he has been a little off-colour the last few days, and last night, my mothering instincts came rushing back!
He started by coming up to me as I lay napping in the living room:
He just put his front paws on the rim of the bed and closed his eyes...
Dear readers, what could I do? I opened my paws to him:
And gave him an enormous cuddle!
#1 said he looked so very happy. I hope I made him feel better. And I realised that I will always be my little Bibi's Mama Tama.
As #1 is leaving early tomorrow morning, we will be mostly absent for the rest of the week BUT... it is our little SEI-CHAN's SECOND BIRTHDAY on Friday and #1 has promised there will be a big SEIlebratory post for her!
