First Prize Winner in the "Most Creative" Division of the "Pandamania" Photo Contest, Washington DC sponsored by Fuji Film
Part of the prize was a tour of the National Zoo with an in-depth talk with a Panda Expert -- the baby panda had recently been born, so we couldn't go behind the scenes, but it was a GREAT tour. Thank you DCAC, Fuji and FONZ!!!

Puddy -- the "wild" cat that no one wanted. She was the most gentle, sweet soul.
I wanted to take her to live upstairs with us -- Mom always said "NO!"
So Puddy spent months and months living outsife, on the stoop -- in all kinds of bitter cold NY winters and hot hot summers. Then one day she was gone forever. Click on her picture to read about her on Catster.com
An old, cracked photo is all I have left of Buttons, the cutest little orange and white tabby kitten who was mine for all of 3 days. Mom and I bought her/him for a quarter at the Fordham Road Pet Store in 1959. What a lively happy little kitten!
Mom said she was allergic and Buttons had to be returned to the Pet Shop. That was the LONGEST saaddest walk I ever took in my whole life. I was 12 years old.
Was Mom really allergic to Buttons? Or was she having a reaction to the noxious still-wet silver pain that was drying on our 4 newly painted radiators in the apartment???
Buttons, I hope that whoever took you into their home from that pet shop, treated you kindly and gave you a good life. We coulda been great buddies -- I still miss you.
