I guess I feel a bit disturbed when I hear about fur babies. I love my cats like any other crazy cat lady, but I don't consider myself their mom. When I call them (and they don't come, of course), I ask them to 'come to Mira'. I've had some contradictory discussions with my sister on this matter because, of course, I had to 'psychoanalyze' why she calls her cat her baby and always she shut me up by demonstrating how much of a slave to my own cats' whims I am, probably worse than she is. Maybe it's about giving a name, any name, to the affection we feel for our pets. They are members of the family anyway.But I'll never use this mom-baby connection in reference to my cats. It just seems embarrassing to me. But then, I'm the easily embarrassed type anyway...
