For this week’s Sunday Stills Photo Challenge it seemed appropriate to share pictures of Tiger and Benji. Granted they might disagree with being labeled ‘pets,’ rightfully believing they’re members of the household.
Tiger came to us from a Cat Hotel. It’s a long story but suffice it to say his well intended previous owner dropped him off and paid the rent till she could find him a home. He was five at the time and is now a mature thirteen years of age. Stories of Tiger inspired this blog – 5 years ago this month in case you wondered – and his handsome face is still my Avatar.
Benji had a rough start too, having been dropped off at Seattle Humane with a cropped ear and a story we’ll never fully know. We brought him home when he was a kitten almost five years ago. What a joy he’s been!
It took a while for them to adjust and I waited patiently for them to become friends and brothers. Like all brothers they still have their differences but mostly are good companions.

They say that having a cat can reduce stress and cut your risk of heart attack or stroke by a third.
“What do you think Tiger?”
“Sounds about right.”
“Sure Sue, whatever you say.”
“Well regardless, here’s what I think, boys.”
“Well said, Sue.”
