So you have a new baby — what a responsibility, I mean, you lived — so trust grandmother!

I know you love your cats. But things are different now. Some people think your baby should come first. Well, they’re wrong. Everyone is first — but you must take charge and you have never done this before.

It’s time to listen to your mum. I know she has issues. I hear ya, but look at you and how great you turned out.

My friend Amethyst had twelve children. To help you out, while you build trust in your mum, she shared this instructional meme regarding managing your cat around your precious bundle of joy.




Wow! Did you notice that? It was your day flying by. This publication is your place to enjoy stories of 150 words or fewer about plants and people, wild animals and pets, gardens and food, how-to and how-not-to — written to inform and delight. Did I mention humor?
