A Happy #Feline Mother's Day--#Cats This Week by Karen Rose Smith

Once a mother...always a mother! Mother's Day made me think back over all of the beautiful moments and memories of Halo's pregnancy, the birthing of her kittens and her role as a mother. Witnessing her giving birth to three beautiful kittens and her devotion as a new mother was an experience I will always treasure. 

Even though Miss Paddington, her first-born kitten that we adopted along with Halo, has grown into a beautiful adult feline, they still share a special bond. The photos below celebrate that that I hope everyone can share with their own mothers...whether it be in person or through memories of times past.

Happy Mother's Day!

Wendy Newcomb, director of the Kismet women's shelter Sunrise Tomorrow, is thrilled when the shelter receives a legacy.  She hires Caprice to decorate the mansion to serve women who need more than an overnight port in a storm. But in her drive against domestic violence, Wendy has made enemies and is murdered. Caprice finds herself in danger once more as she asks questions and even calls on St. Anthony for inspiration to solve this murder mystery.

USA TODAY Bestselling Author Karen Rose Smith is an only child who delved into books at an early age. She learned about kindred spirits from Anne of Green Gables, solved mysteries with Nancy Drew and wished she could have been the rider on The Black Stallion. Yet even though she escaped often into story worlds, she had many aunts, uncles and cousins around her on weekends. Her sense of family and relationships began there. Maybe that's why families are a strong theme in her novels, whether mysteries or romances. This award-winning and bestselling author will have her 100th novel released in 2018.  At present she is working on two mystery series for Kensington Books--Caprice De Luca Home Staging cozies and Daisy's Tea Garden mysteries. From time to time, she also writes romance for Harlequin Special Edition.

Readers often ask her about her pastimes. She has herb, flowers and vegetable gardens that help her relax. In the winter, she cooks and does watercolor paintings rather than gardens.  And year round she spends most of her time with her husband, as well as her four rescued cats who are her constant companions. They chase rainbows from sun catchers, reminding her life isn't all about work, awards and bestseller lists. Everyone needs that rainbow to chase.

Karen looks forward to interacting with readers. They can find her at the links below.

I love these pictures! There is nothing like watching a cat give birth and then raise her babies. I missed the first part with Minerva, since I adopted her and two of her four kittens (the other two got homes too) when Magic and Mystic were about 10 weeks old. But they shared a special bond until we lost her last year, and I can tell they both still miss her.

Happy Mother's Day, Karen (and Halo)!
