One of my favorite stories of Tiger. Here you go in case you missed it. 🙂

Cats and Trails and Garden Tales

I wandered in the garden one morning

and found Tiger and Benji apparently at odds.

It was mostly Tiger who needed cheering up.

“Hey Tiger, you handsome boy!  How are you doing?”

“Oh I don’t know Sue.  I don’t feel very handsome.  Did you notice the carcass in the yard?”
