Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers and their offspring from Prairiebirder!
I looked hard for nests, but couldn’t find any to photograph, and no baby birds have hatched around here yet. So to celebrate the day, here are some mammal mothers and their babies! To start, my 4H cow-calf pair Abigail and her calf George,
Mother cats Callie (the calico), Sally (gray tabby), and Dolly (white and orange), and their 14 kittens. My mom calls them a cat commune!
Here I am feeding our foster calf, Marco. He was born on a friend’s farm, and when his mother died, we were asked if we would like to foster him. So now I’m his mother,
