Last Tuesday you met Andrew from the Goodyear Shoe Hospital in downtown Birmingham. I promised a return visit. Meet Momma, the shop mascot. Rhonda, the owner, found Momma and her littermates in the parking lot out back. Momma has been Rhonda's faithful companion ever since. While we were there photographing, Momma gave me many resounding meows, along with several scowls that would stop traffic. When Rhonda urged me to pet her, naturally I balked. I nervously held out my hand, fully expecting a mauling. To my surprise, after a quick sniff, she rubbed up against my hand like I was her lost long friend! Momma's encore was to "sit" on command. After a few minutes of coaxing, she made us all proud.(See the photo below.) I may be more of a cat person than I thought.
I have only been part of the City Daily Photo community for about 3 months. I am grateful for the friendships that I have made in this short time. Special thoughts and prayers go out to our friend Pat, Bibi in Belgrade , on the loss of her dear husband Ivan.
