~*My Early Mother's Day Gift !!!!!*~

Meet my new baby Teeka!! My son bought me this sweet little parakeet yesterday for mother's day! He seems like a sweet little guy (ok not sure if it's a boy or a girl for awhile yet until his beak changes color but everyone else here but me is male so let's assume...). He's pretty nervous yet and I have to keep myself from forcing him to love me yet but what a fun journey this will be!
My son who bought me this had two birds while he was little & I did like them but at that time in my life I was running an in home daycare, had two young ones of my own, two dogs(one blind), two cats & a hamster. At that time the birds were nice but just one more thing that pooped & needed fed, cleaned & cared for LOL!!
This is for me this time!! I've wanted one for so long & am so excited. What a great way to wake up this morning & remember I had him!!
I'm adding some pics too of my other fur babies....we can be mother's to many!!  

This is Dakota, my 11 year old Sheltie and the love of my life!! He follows me everywhere I go and some days that's hard on him with getting older. I feel bad when he follows me upstairs & I'm only up there for a minute to get laundry....he's my always faithful companion and the sweetest dog you'll ever meet! I love my old boy so much. He had a bath & brushing later that night....should have waited till he was prettied up for the picture! I hope he lives forever!!!!!!!!
 This is Spazz my 15 year old kitty. He has catittude 100% of the  time. He has chosen my oldest son as his "person" but likes me for my skills as feeder & litter changer. He was actually born between my knees on the couch! My inlaws were home for a visit so we were sleeping downstairs & I woke up in the middle of the night to something wet & hot and there was his momma Angel giving birth right there!
 He loves this bucket in my laundry room. I was planning on filling it with vintage fabrics & sock darners & spindles but haven't yet as he seems to really enjoy it as a napping spot. It's on top of the dryer so it's warm & his food dish is up there away from Dakota so I guess it's the perfect spot.

It's hard to tell in the pictures but he's a pretty big cat so him squeezing in here is pretty cute. By the way, he thinks Teeka looks delicious!
So these are more of my babies....animals really add a lot to our lives don't they??
Off to stitch , have a happy Saturday   ~Kriss~


  1. Hi, Kriss
    Happy Mother's day early!! Teeka is so pretty, so colorful!
    Dakota~ looks spoiled rotten, loving it, and beautiful!
    Spazz~ I just love cats~simply love them~ so the story about where Spazz was born~too funny~ looks like cattitude~ so cute in the bucket!

  2. Aww, adorable babies. I love parakeets and used to have finches when the kids were little. Loved to here them sing. Yes, we can be mothers of all things living can't we. We've got seven cats at present. Our pets love us unconditionally. Happy Mother's Day.

  3. Cat-bird-dog!! They are all adorable!

    Happy Mothers Day
    It is our special day

  4. What a different Mother's Day gift :) I remember having birds when I was a child growing up. We actually had many...LOL...The messes use to get on my nerves when I was young so I don't think I could handle it today.

    But I do have two fur babies and they are my babies. Like you, they both are on my heels and go where I go. My oldest is a mini-poodle, Daisy who weighs in at a big 8 pounds. She's turning 10 on the 14th. But does not act like a 10 year old. She is still full of spunk and energy. The Vet told me she probably will stay young for a longer time because my second dog is a Dashchund (Teckle), Allie she just turned 1 in Feb. When we brought her home she was only 7 weeks old. She is worst then my poodle, she is stuck to my left hip at all times and gets jealous if I am giving attention to Daisy. They act just like kids...LOL.

    But as you said, they sure to bring life to our lives :)

    Happy Mother's Day, enjoy your day tomorrow!
