Insights from Tiger and Benji and other cat stories

Holding Down the Fort

September is the best time to travel so why not hit the road? That’s what we said and set our sights and our wheels toward our favorite national park, Yellowstone. I’ll have lots of stories and pictures to share later, but in the meantime…

Cats are not Dogs

This is obvious of course but I was thinking particularly about travel. On our recent trip to the Oregon Coast we saw many happy dogs with their owners, around town and especially walking, running and cavorting about on the beach.   I saw no…

Happy Two Years with Benji

“Hey Benji!  Do you know what today is?” “No, what??”  he asked. “Two years ago we brought you home from Seattle Humane to live with us – and I’m so glad we did!  You’re the best cat ever!” “Aw, really Sue? I bet you…

Tiger ~ a day in the life

Originally posted on Cats and Trails and Garden Tales:
Hello everyone.  Tiger here.  I realize I may have sounded a bit grumpy in my last post  Not the Same Species where it was clear that Sue and I do not agree on hunting. But…

Let sleeping cats lie…..

I must say that sleeping humans are not that cute (with the exception perhaps of baby humans.)  They are twisted and have messy unmanageable hair and bed-clothes and sometimes thrash around.  Indeed humans do not wish…

Happy International Cat Day!

Who knew??  August 8th is International Cat Day!  Well I didn’t until I was reminded by my fellow bloggers!  And so I couldn’t let the day go by without sharing pictures of my favorite felines:  Tiger and Benji, who went from this: to this:…

Can We Come Too?

‘Hey Benji. What are you doing there?’ ‘Waiting for you Sue!’ he replied. ‘On the trailer step?’ I asked. ‘Yes!’ he said. ‘Tiger and I talked it over and we want to go camping with you. I thought this would be the best place…

Benji and the Selfie

‘Hey Benji, I’d like to practice taking a selfie. Can you help me out?’ ‘Sure Sue, what’s a selfie?’ ‘It’s when you use your phone to take a picture of yourself. It seems like everyone’s doing it and they look so good in the…

Sincerely, Benji

Sue asked me to draft a letter so she could close it with the salutation,  ‘Sincerely, Benji.’ I don’t know why but here goes. ‘Dear Sue,  I like sitting on your desk when you are there.  You are my best friend. Sincerely,  Benji’ *****…

Happy Benji

This is Benji and I love being a cat. Everything I do makes me happy, especially whatever I am doing currently. Sleeping on my new perch is a good example. First I take a deep breath and stretch as long as I can. You…

Wisdom from Cats in the Garden

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…

In the Zone

Sorry if you have to work today. I think I shall stay right here. In the zone. Happy Friday. ~ Susanne and Benji
