This fall I met Anthony when he was walking his young Maine Coon cat in our neighborhood. Anthony gave me permission to photograph William, his pride and joy. However, the cat was more interested in the birds and squirrels around; so, I gave up.
I ran into the two of them a little later that afternoon when they were in the car relaxing. When William gave me a long friendly blink, I knew I had a connection. Anthony’s pride and admiration of his beloved cat were apparent in that intimate and familiar setting.
