I’ve always had an interest in animals. In fact, I’ve had an interest in anything to do with nature, animals, plants, rocks, you name it. I’ve been interested in it. Yes, I had the usual dog, didn’t have any cats, my father didn’t like cats and we couldn’t have cats in the house. I’ve had cats later in life and anything to do with both domestic and wild animals I’ve enjoyed. My family were all hunters and in Ohio that meant hunting squirrels and cottontail rabbits, things like this, nothing large or exotic because at that time, Ohio had no deer to speak of and they just came in in any amounts in the late ’50s and in the ’60s. So I grew up in the woods. My favorite time of the years is the fall.
