Introducing little Ben – the Tiger Cub

Wow! Five years ago we brought Benji home from Seattle Humane to be a companion for Tiger. It was a perfect choice! Benji is still a livewire – scrappy, energetic and loads of fun – while the mellow Tiger has managed to hold his own. Here’s the story from 5 years ago in case you missed it back then. 🙂

Cats and Trails and Garden Tales

Day 1  Sue here.  As I sit in my office on the third floor of our home, Tiger is relaxing  nearby.  After a final deep cleaning behind the ears (who can sleep with dirty ears?)  he’s ready to call it a day and drifts off into kittyland.

Little does he know that two levels below, there’s a little Tiger cub hiding under grandma’s bed. We visited Seattle Humane today and brought home a new kitty as a companion for Tiger. His name is Ben. Or Benji.  We’ll see what sticks.  He’s a 10 month old mini Tiger with golden almond eyes and a scruffy ear.  Brown and gray like his new big brother. He came from the home of a hoarder, where he lived with 40 other cats.  We picked him out when we saw him snuggle in the bosom of another sleeping cat.  Ah, that’s the one, we said.

  1. What a bright-eyed little guy Benji was, and still is! Tiger looks so peaceful and unsuspecting . . .

    • Yes, Benji was bright-eyed and full of life, ready to take on the world! Tiger was definitely unsuspecting, and still is to some degree! They’ve come a long way together and I love them both! 🙂 🙂

  2. Great choice! I usually have multiple cats, but they never, ever sleep together. I’ve seen Gracie snuggling with our dog River, but never with another cat! So you chose well. ♥️

  3. I clicked through to read your original post but I thought I’d leave my comment here. Benji looks so cute as a little one, and it’s lovely how he and Tiger have settled down together 🙂
