So Many Kinds of Moms to Love!

In honor of Mother’s Day and all the amazing animal moms, foster moms, adoptive moms, and our own human moms, we thought we’d share a couple of love notes from some of their “babies”. Enjoy!


Hi! I’m Colby. My brothers and sisters and I are called the Cheese Tray kittens and we have two moms to celebrate for our first Mother’s Day!

Raising five kittens is a lot of work! Luckily, our mom, Mimolette, has the best helper! It’s our foster Mom, Allee.

Allee has been there from the moment we were born, making sure we had snuggles, Mom got time to sleep, and we had social time to learn how to be purrfect kittens.

Allee has taught us all sorts of things from, the arts (Don’t break her pottery!) to how to be friends with Annabelle and her 9 chicks.

We can’t wait to see what Allee will teach us next while we’re waiting to to be big enough to find a family of our own!

Thank you Mommy Mimolette and Mommy Allee! We love you!

Gouda, Cheddar, Havarti, Muenster, and me, Colby!

Hi! I’m Cookie! At 4 1/2 months I’ve had 3 moms, so far!

My Mama Coco was alone, outside in freezing weather, and very pregnant with me and my brothers and sisters. Our foster mom, Chelsea, found her just in time for 13 of us to be born on Christmas night.

14 dogs in one house is a handful for anyone. Especially if 13 of us are puppies! Chelsea asked DPA for help and they said, “Yes!”

Now that we’re bigger, some of us have already found new families. (Mama’s going to live with Chelsea forever. YAY!)

I have the best new foster mom, Zeal, who gives the wonderful-est cuddles and totally knows how a girl likes to dress! 

Thanks to our moms Coco, Chelsea, and (my) Zeal, we are all excited to take on the world with our new families.

Thanks Moms from all of us! We love you soooo much!

Chloe, Chewy, Cherry, Dottie, Lillet, Hailey, Pokey, Zeus, Selena, Bruno, MC Puppy, CJ, and me, Cookie
