feel the love



I discovered a treasure trove of old pictures in a trunk at my mom's. The picture above, taken in 1968, is of me at age 11 with Katze (my first cat). I like how calm and happy I look -- in direct contrast to Katze's "get me the hell out of here" expression.

Katze was usually a mellow cat. For real. But I remember when this picture was taken, Princess (our newly adopted Boston Terrier) was being held by my brother about 2 feet away. Katze was not amused.

Nice picture.

I had a black cat as a child as well. Though not at all mellow.

No cat whisperer in your house at time that was taken, obviously. -:)
