Love for our Moms AND Cat Moms

WAFFLES:  So, Glogirly? 

GLOGIRLY:  Waffles?

WAFFLES:  Glogirly, are you my mom? Because you don't really look like me and stuff. But I really love you. You know, like a mom and stuff.

GLOGIRLY:  Of course I'm your mom, Waffles. I adopted you so that you'd be part of our family and we all could love you, take care of you, and spend our lives together. 

WAFFLES:  So even though you're not a cat, you can still be my mom? Like forever and stuff

GLOGIRLY:  Forever and always. Forever and ever, Waffles.

WAFFLES:  And so you're Ellie's mom too, right? Forever and everything?


Happy Mother's Day!

Mother's Day is a pretty special day for our girl. You see, like us kitties she was adopted as a tiny little one. Not only did she have a mom who loved her with all her heart and taught her how to love and be kind and study hard and grow up to find happiness and joy in the world, she also has another mother who loved her enough to give her to a family she knew would take care of her. Forever and always. Forever and ever.

Many of our friends and readers have read Another Mother, Glogirly's story of her search for her birth family. It still sits here on the pages of our blog, and she still has plans to someday turn it into a memoir. If you've never read the story or would like to read it again, we invite you to curl up with your kitties and favorite tea or coffee, and enjoy her journey and the story of her search.. 

It's "narrated" by Katie, our beloved tuxedo kitty who inspired our blog over 11 years ago. And today, we're dedicating it to all the strong women out there who have taken others under their wing to show them the way. 


  1. My human loved reading this story, back when Glogirly first posted it.

  2. I really enjoyed Glogirly's story and will most likely read it again.

  3. I didn't know you back then and so now I am reading it. Thank you for letting us know you.

  4. I will go back and reread it. You have such an amazing ability with story telling. Just here in this post, the way these wonderful pictures tell the story of the love between you and Waffles. Belated Happy Mother’s Day.

  5. We hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day. We need to read your story.

  11. Happy yesterday Mother's Day forever and ever! We looked forward to reading each installment of the book. A few months ago, we perused it since a friend was looking to find her ancestors and we knew your girl had been through it to find her other mom.

  12. What a beautiful post and the pictures to go with it !

  13. Happy Mothers Day. All mothers are special no matter how they became a mother. Human or fur babies we celebrate them all.

  14. Happy Belated Mum Day, we all love our mums so much. Hope you had a wonderful day.

  15. I love this post! Happy Mother's day to all kinds of mother you are to any beautiful living being you love and care for in your life. Glogirly is a beautiful mother inside and out and she wrote a beautiful story of her life. If it turns into a memoir, I am definitely getting my copy!

  16. Oh! I stayed up till 4am last night and read half of the story and now I've just finished the other half. Oh MY!
    Tears have wet my face over and over again as I read each chapter. Bless you for not giving up and persisting to find your family...and your Other Mother.
    What an amazing story, not only book worthy, but maybe even a movie...

    Time for me to go to my work and look after all the peeps at the nursing home, they are ALL my extra Moms, Grannies; Dads and Grandpas.


Thank you so much for your comment. We LOVE hearing from you!
