The Handsome Benji

Benji, I said.  You look so reflective today.  What’s on your mind? 

Well, he replied.  Today I was thinking that I have probably stopped growing.  I will never be big like Tiger. And more than that.  I thought my ear would grow back but it hasn’t.  I will always be different.

Oh Benji, I replied. You are wrong about the ear.  It’s part of your story and makes you, YOU!  Honestly, I have never seen a more handsome cat!  (But don’t tell Tiger I said so.)

Thank you, Sue, he said.  I will try to believe it.

I will believe for you, I said.
