Nature has her little ways, doesn’t she?
She has her little ways to show us the rough devastating ways of the wild, the floods…the tornadoes…the jaguar taking down a gazelle on Animal Planet.
But, for every single time she makes us cringe in disbelief at her raw power and her seemingly unmerciful moods, she turns around and gives us something something gentle and beautiful and uplifting.
Take for example: a mama cat and her kittens.
It’s hard to put your finger on what it is exactly that melts our hearts when we see them together, these new fuzz nuggets and their loving mom, but there’s something that makes us coo, that’s for sure. Even for burly grizzled dudes like myself, it’s impossible not to be in the presence of a new litter of kittens nuzzling at their mama’s belly and not feel a little bit softer on the inside just for witnessing the miracle of it all. ( Dudes, that’s not to say I still don’t enjoy a good gazelle take-down…I do. But still.)
So, I took the liberty of cheering you up today and I hope you don’t mind it. I went out and rounded up a slew of great photos of kittens and their mamas for you to linger over while you kill time at work or on the couch there.
I hope you dig them.
