Thank you, my sweet friend ... I know in my heart, Jean, that it won't be long before you are walking the same path I am -- and your images of cats will grace the pages and covers of premier cat magazines throughout the land. Take heart! If I can do it, you can, too! Thank you for all your support, Jean.

Thanks, everybody! Sorry, just woke up - I need to correct a big misunderstanding pronto! My description wasn't clear enough. The tribute is to Helmi, the pic is my cat taken by me. Helmi's wonderful Cat Fancy photo cover is of a beautiful Bengal! Febraury issue!

Thanks so much, Carolyn, for making me aware of Helmi's work and for your valued friendship, humor and friendly, motiving competition here at bp!

And, thanks to you, Helmi, for all your friendship, support and inspiration!!!! You are a most special lady as well as a most talented one!!!! CONGRATULATIONS again!

Unavailable EXIF: If there is no other information but 'Unavailable' in the EXIF (meaning no EXIF data exists with the photo), the 'Unavailable' blurb is not displayed.
