As mothers, it's also our job to keep our children safe.
"Don't touch that..."
"Careful, it's hot!"...
"Don't talk to strangers..."
I can't imagine what it's like for the Moms who deliver their kittens on death row at the shelter. It must go against all instinct because she knows her babies aren't safe. It's the instinct of a Mom cat to move her kittens to a safe place. It must be terribly frustrating and frightening to be forced to remain in the same place.
I'm posting a few pictures of some Moms and babies currently at the shelter. It's VERY hard for me to go into the shelter and see these sweet Moms with their babies. Her eyes seem to always plead with me to help her and her children. As a Mom, it tears at my heart.
