Happy Mothers Day, Pictures of Cute Baby Animals

Mother's Day is celebrated on different days all over the world, here in Canada, Mother's day is the first Sunday in May.  To celebrate this day I wanted so share with you some pictures of cute baby animals and their mothers.

Happy Mothers Day!


Note:  Although baby animals are cute, you should not let your pet breed unless you have qualified people looking to take the off spring.  This is particularly true of cats and dogs, as in the United States over 4 million excess pets are produced every year, and are euthanized.  Keep in mind that not every female animal wants to be a mother, and some will not survive the pregnancy or giving birth.  Sometimes mother animals will not care for their young, and you have to be a foster parent.

  8. Pets are an amazing part of our lives. It makes me sad when people breed without thinking of what they will do with the off spring so it is important to plan ahead. Also very important to plan ahead before getting a pet. Pets are expensive and they require on going commitments to care and for their Pet Supplies food and everything else our pets need. Super important for people to remember too that you might get a cute baby animal, but it grows up to be big, they need care and love for their life time.
