Cat Photography

Around 1988 and on through 1994 I did a lot of freelance photography for various magazines. In addition, I studied photography when pursuing my degree in Fine Arts way back in 1985. During that period, I had the opportunity to exhibit my photos in a college gallery. I am a cat lover, sharing my home with five felines at present. I’ve posted some of the photography I’ve recently done. This is Wizard, one of my elderly gentleman felines. He’s a sweet tabby, and a very good companion.

  Mimi came into my life in August, six years ago, a few days after my father passed away. I wanted a companion for my older cat, Matty. Not a kitten, but a young animal. A woman who handled adoptions for Providence Animal Shelter at Petsmart indicated that a quiet, sweet five-year-old female like Mimi would be perfect. So, I brought her home, and Matty immediately let her know who was boss, but eventually he gave in to her cuddling and sharing cans of his favorite food. Matty passed away six months after Mimi came to live with me. Afterward, … Continue reading Mimi
