Unlike so many kitties out there, I know who both my parents are. In fact, they have been a very popular couple in the Somali cat world because their kittens are always exceptionally good natured. I think you may be a little surprised at my mother when you see her.
As you can tell, she is a blue Somali, not ruddy like me! In fact her name is Bluesette (or Tajhara Blues for Bluesette, to give you her full name). I get my color (and the way I pose on the judging table) from my dad. But I get my personality from my mom. Also we look a little bit alike from certain angles. Check out the detail on this photo from the other day:
My mom is awesome, and in fact she’s raising some kittens right now who were born on my birthday in March! They have a different father, but I bet they are as sweet as she is. I know someday my mom will retire to a good home and a more peaceful life than the one she no doubt has at the moment! But she will always be my mom, and I made a special card for her today.
Happy Mothers Day! Whap those kittens if they are too unruly!
