TALL MOM AND TINY FUR BABIES

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Muse Cat Food. All opinions are 100% mine. It’s funny. Some couples choose to have fur babies in their lives before they think about having human families. The opposite was true for us.

Months of agonizing colic and then my postpartum depression really put a ton of stress and difficulty…
