We lived on the edge of town. People brought their unwanted animals to the area around our barn. Dad would squirt the cats with milk straight from the cow and then pour more milk in the half-tires when he was through milking.

I made pets of all the strays and got ringworm. Mom treated us all with sulfur and lard.

My dad took this pic. Wolf Point, Montana, USA
I reworked it in my Bozeman Montana studio.

Wildlife, people, dogs, ranches, mountains, cameras.
