I'm not sure why I'm so touched watching our kitty become a mother, but it's one of the most beautiful things I've seen. She was found last winter as a kitten herself, with her eyes frozen shut, stumbling around in sub freezing temperatures. When we brought her home, she was frightened, sick, and untrusting of everyone around her. As we nursed her back to health and taught her to love and trust, my thoughts went to motherless children who are also frightened and alone. And I wondered, for the first time, if adoption was something we needed to consider. As crazy-cat-lady as it sounds, this mama kitty was the first step towards softening my heart for adoption, and I love her for it.
