MAMMA MIA!

Watch a mamma cat
as she cares
for her kittens,
you will see her
single-handedly
(ok, four-paw-edly)
corral her babies,
groom them,
feed them,
protect them,
teach them, and
keep them in line.
She is creating
newly-independent
cats, ready
for the big world.
If you have seen
a mamma cat in action,
you have seen
my mom.
