Last year was the first time we declared the day after Mother's Day as Cat Mother's Day. And the tradition LIVES ON!
First, the stats: (since my blog usually has no occasion to deal in percentages and stats, let's do it! )
This year we saw a 200% increase in participation from last year -- a 175% increase in states represented.
Here's a look at the 2015 participation VISUALIZED!
Representing 7 states, this group of dedicated Cat Moms went the distance, submitting photos despite the fact that cats can be so ungrateful when it comes to recording history. We even had a cat mom who went the ultimate distance, making her dog into a cat for a day. Love knows no boundaries, no species limits.
Love is good and true and today we celebrate LOVE.
On a personal note, this year I had a chance to realize something very important:
There's nothing quite as "feel-good" as collecting photos of your pals with their cats. Really - you should try it sometime.
Because celebrating cat moms shouldn't be a once-a-year occasion. Scooping litter boxes, tolerating intolerance, cuddling on a very conditional basis....these are things to be celebrated every day. HAPPY CAT MOTHER'S DAY TO ALL CAT MOMS EVERYWHERE. LET US REJOICE AND BE GLAD.
AND LET US KEEP THE INTERNET FLOWING WITH ITS MOST VALUABLE CURRENCY -- PHOTOS OF CATS AND OF OURSELVES!
Share this post with your friends, your cats, your dogs and anyone anywhere so we can recognize these cat moms . Let's also pave the way for next year when we strive for 100% state representation, maximum cat mom representation and even more snapshots of this motherly dedication. (AND THE UNIVERSAL STRUGGLE THAT IS THE EFFORT OF TAKING A SELFIE WITH A CAT)
