    Good morning Cutetropolians. Love the new banner (Bootropolis – ha!) and all the links today.

    I’ve been needing a little pick me up as the last week has been pretty upsetting and crazy. Don’t want to be a debbie downer today but I think I mentioned my mom had not been doing well for several weeks, well she passed on Thursday. Luckily I got a chance to see her before she died and tell her I loved her. She went peacefully later that. day

      AJ, I am so sorry about the loss of your mother. It is a difficult time for sure but happy memories make it much easier. So think of her often with a smile and a laugh and she’ll be in your heart forever.

      Iโ€™m sorry for your loss. My mother died last year so my understanding of your situation is vivid. My motherโ€™s death has had a bigger and more long-lasting impact than I expected. It will take a while to get through this. And I think it changes you. Good luck.

      So very sorry to hear that news; please take care of yourself and give yourself time to heal as well. The Cute can sometimes help cope; I think many can attest to that.

    Thanks everyone for the nice words and “hugs”. Even though we were expecting it, it was still tough and I think it’s just starting to hit me. I do think losing a mom is harder, my dad passed about 1-1/2 years before her and even though I was sad, I was able to process it and accept it. This time, I’m struggling a little bit, maybe as time goes on it will become easier. I just taking comfort in the happy memories we had.

    • Laura October 23, 2017 / 5:30 pm

      I’m so sorry, AJ. Yes, losing your mom is hard. I lost mine on Christmas Eve last year, so I understand how it takes time to process. I’m so glad you had time with her, though; it’s so important to have the chance to say goodbye and express your love! You can have happy memories of all the good times you had with her, I hope. {{{AJ}}}

      So sorry for your loss, AJ.๐Ÿ˜ข
      My mom died at the end of Sep. last year, so I know what you’re going thru. Im glad you got to see her one last time. Theo sends bunny kisses.๐Ÿ‡

    • HaHa October 23, 2017 / 10:01 pm

      Quietly offering condolences.

    • Faye October 24, 2017 / 1:38 am

      Iโ€™m sorry AJ. Iโ€™m agree. Stick with the happy memories.

    This line from the dog facial expressions story made me ‘awww’:

    โ€œHe would ignore a piece of meat if he could receive a cuddle,โ€

    It’s okay, Lulu. I’m not a big fan of “explosive odors” either..

    • fkaWaldenPond October 23, 2017 / 11:15 am

      Oh geezus Allein.. re Lulu joke. ๐Ÿ˜€

      • allein ๐Ÿพ October 23, 2017 / 12:15 pm

        I cannot be the only one whose mind went there.

      And in other news, Science has determined that if you pay attention to cats, they will ignore you.

      • allein ๐Ÿพ October 23, 2017 / 7:22 pm

        And if you ignore them and do something else, they will pay attention to you.

    Those baby otters! I did my grad work at UC Santa Barbara, and because it’s such an expensive place to live, the zoo was my favorite recreation. You could always tell when it was feeding time because the otters would stand on their hind legs and squeak REALLY loudly!

    โ€œThe parents didnโ€™t come out to greet us, and then we heard squeaks,โ€ said the Zooโ€™s Curator of Mammals Michele Green. โ€œThatโ€™s how we knew Gail had given birth.โ€ Yeah, I can imagine!

    I can’t decide which is cuter, the otterling being held in one hand, or the chubble on Fiona!

    Yesterday I met my neighbour’s baby cockatiel. He sat on my shoulder with all his head feathers erect, and when she tried to take him off, he hissed at her and hid in my hair.
