A Benji Kind of Morning

“Benji, did anyone ever tell you you’re the cutest cat ever?”

“Only you Sue.  Before you, I was just one of the forty running wild in that house.  Till they caught me and took me to the pound. I didn’t think anyone would ever choose me after they chopped my ear.   Did I ever thank you for that?”

“Benji, you thank me everyday by being such a fun kitty. Seriously, you’re the best!”

“Even when I get in trouble like today?”

“Yes, Benji, even today.  Even when you’re running wild like a crazy cat.  You’re still so darn cute!  But it would be nice if you could settle down just a little bit….”


“Hey, get off the keyboard!!!”

“Sorry Sue. Didn’t mean to get in your way.”

“Yeah, sure Benji, sure..  But sometimes I don’t know what gets into you.”

“Like I said Sue.  I can’t help it. I was raised by the crazy cat lady remember? ”

“Maybe  that does have something to do with it Benji.”


“Yes, Benji.”

“Do you still think I’m the cutest cat ever?”

“No doubt about it, Benji.”

“Thanks Sue.”

    • Oh yes. This morning he was everywhere! Around my feet, in the garbage can, under my desk and on my keyboard! Those really were his entries in this post! 🙂 Still, I love that little kitty!

  1. Benji, I think you could lose some of your diffidence if you took lessons from Miss Effie–though she has quite a waiting list. 😽💕🐾

    • We got him from Seattle Humane Society. He’d only been there a few days. They told us he was rescued from a house of 40 cats. We were impressed by his sweet disposition and didn’t even notice his clipped ear (still bloody) until we began the paperwork. I don’t understand the clipped ear based on the story, as usually that means a rescued feral cat. Seattle Humane Society does not clip the ears of cats. Within a week of bringing him home he had a respiratory infection which we caught quickly and treated successfully. Thankful to have him.

      • Or maybe a different organization rescued the cats from the house and clipped the ear before handing over to Seattle Humane? Either way, he is the sweetest boy with the most personality of any cat we’ve ever had! (Don’t tell the others!) 🙂
