My Mother’s Cougars

This 1935 photo of my mom with Girlie (about a year old cougar) – was taken (I think in Owen Bay BC) by a now unknown tourist and mailed to my mom afterwards who would then become one of her pen pals. Colourized a few years ago by one of my cousins.

You can see the love of them both for one another.  My mom says the rumbling purr of a cougar when it was leaning against you like that was amazing.  She never has been able to talk about that without smiling.

    At least I figured out how not to be ‘anonymous’ any more…just a bit slow 🙂
