There are favorites among favorites and that would be Bud. A maine coon, born in my studio in san diego, his mother a wayward stray who found her way thru the always open attic window.
Bud's markings were tabby like with thick long hair. He posessed an enlightened conciousness and a quiet intellect. And he had the best purr,ever. He was a very vocal animal and grand conversations took place between me and him and his brother wilson.
