I usually take photos of my cat with my phone, but I decided to use my Canon for this one. It turned out great. You can feel the contempt in her eyes as she glares at something she feels has offended her. To be honest, that’s just her face. I was also pleased with how well this turned out in a low light setting. Because of the uncertainty of a cat’s movements, I had to act fast with this shot. There were a couple others that didn’t turn out well. Perhaps one day I’ll have an official photo shoot with my grumpy old cat lady.
Callie is a rescue. I adopted her on February 10, 2018. She’s a senior cat. She sleeps a lot and doesn’t play much. This is good for me. All she wants to do is sleep on my lap or chest. That’s our bonding time. And we have disagreements about how much food in the bowl is considered “enough.” She sleeps in the sun and doesn’t eat the house plants. She’d be the perfect roommate if she paid part of the rent.
This Mother’s Day, I want to give everyone something to contemplate when you all celebrate your mothers. Not everyone observes Mother’s Day. Other’s feel pain when they see everyone out and about with their mom. Some may take mom out to dinner or lunch. Or they’ll take mom shopping. Keep in mind some mothers are no longer with their families. Some have passed away and this is a difficult time for the families. Other people may have never had good relationships with their mothers. They don’t celebrate because they never felt they had a mother.
Some mothers are selfish and narcissistic. They take from their children instead of giving them love. I do not intend to push out negativity. I want everyone to understand that Mother’s Day is negative for some people. I only ask they everyone bare this in mind when running around with mom. Some never grew up with a mom. Some had a bad mother. Some were fortunate enough to have a loving mother. There’s another thing I hope people will recognize. Cat moms and dog moms and any woman who takes care of a pet, should get some praise on the day of mothers.
So, celebrate all the moms in your life. Even the unconventional ones. And show respect to those who wish not to observe the festivities. And make sure those furry friends get a card for their mom. They may need help. Most cats and dogs I’ve met don’t have jobs or money. Freeloaders.
