Boots and flower arrangment

This photograph instantly connects the viewer The American Experience. My indoor cat, Boots, is overly concerned with the newly placed flower arrangement located on the dining room table. Allowing him to explore the arrangement enabled me to capture a simple but detailed photograph. Pets are being introduced as "members of the family," and this is a rapidly growing phenomenon in the American culture.
