Taking a picture of the flowers, no, of the cat



2017-04-16 - Columbia KY - Photo by Linda Waggener, columbiamagazine.com.
I went out to take a photo of the pretty little purple flower on the edge of the back yard rock wall. Blue the Cat moved in front of the little flower and purred, "hug." I moved Blue and aimed again, focusing my camera on the flower. Blue said, "please, hug." I wavered. Blue said, "Seriously. Huuuuggg." I forgot the flower and hugged my cat. We were both happy it worked out that way. - LW
