When the child leaves the mothers nest. The mother will feel the need to fill the hole. This often comes in the form of pets. My mom currently has two dogs, three cats, fish, and now two birds!
Though I often visit my mom and only live an hour away she seems to be collecting animals. Maybe she is filling her empty nest with other super cute things. Or maybe she just likes pets.
All I really have to say are these are some lucky animals. They were basically rescued from bad situations and now my wonderful mom takes care of them.
Geeze do they love her!
