Sweet Praline was curious from day one. This picture was the first picture I took of her when she came to live with me back in 1995. I was going through a divorce and had chosen to move away from home and pursue a Ph.D. God brought this beautiful little ladycat in my world to help me heal.
I always loved this picture of Baby Praline. She was literally laying upside down on the back of the couch. I don't remember if she fell off after this picture, but I'm so glad I was able to capture this photo.
I bought Sweet Praline numerous toys to play with, but her favorite toy was a shoe string from my sneakers. She would grab the string with her little flat face and carry it around the apartment.
Here is our first official portrait together. I had a nice Canon AE-1 camera that had a timer on it and was able to set it and jump in front of the camera with Sweet Praline in my arms. All of my pictures of the two of us together were with a timer on a camera because it was just the two of us for almost 16 years.
