A reblog from 2017. Though Tiger’s going on 13 now not much has changed. He’s still young at heart! 🙂
Cats and Trails and Garden Tales
This is Tiger and as you know I am the senior cat in residence.
I shall turn 9 this spring in human years (not to be confused with the 9 lives of which I am on # 3) which makes me eligible for cat discounts. The point is, I’m starting to realize I am no longer young and this is increasingly apparent as I watch the junior cat on the premises, aka, Benji. I can’t fail to notice how fast he is, how instantly he appears by my side when nanoseconds before he was across the yard in the bush.
I have observed his frantic chasing of the squirrels, yea, his tumbling round and round with them, until they escape and scramble up the tree. (I have never attempted such a feat, though I have been known to give chase.)
The boy is limber to be sure. I fear my back would break if I attempted to sleep in…

Ollie is 9 years old on the 12th of this month. They are 2012 ‘veterans’ together. Tiger still knows that Benji is just a ‘boy’. 🙂
Best wishes, Pete.
Thanks Pete. They are seniors with a teenage heart, just like us! I can hardly believe Tiger will turn 13 next month. He still goes outside but not as much as before. And Benji remains a wild boy!
This was a reblog from 2017, so it looks like Tiger has a few years on Ollie!
Yes, I stupidly forgot the date! I need to concentrate harder! 🙂 🙂
No problem! 🙂 This was so long ago I was pretty sure most folks hadn’t seen it yet. But not much has changed as far as Benji and Tiger goes other than the passing of years.
And I even checked my comment on the original post! No hope for me, I’m afraid. 🙂
There’s hope for all of us! 🙂
You are a handsome boy! I think you’re amazing!
Thank you! 😻
Well of course!
