Insights from Tiger and Benji and other cat stories

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 the boys 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…

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

Tiger on a Rainy Afternoon

Still Soaring

Happy Garden Cats

The boys are happy in green. And with each other. They’re happy garden cats. ~ Susanne, Tiger and Benji

Two Years with Cats and Trails and Garden Tales

I was wondering how to mark the two year anniversary of Cats and Trails and Garden Tales, but I was feeling tongue-tied until this boy showed up to help. ‘Just do what you’ve been doing,’  he said.   Okay, I thought,  I’ll share a…

I’d Rather be like Benji

I watched the cats in the backyard today. There was Tiger. And there was Benji. I love them both.  But I’d rather be like Benji. ~ Susanne

Benji and the Chair

I have a special chair in my office.  I’ve had it many years and I’m starting to feel the springs in the seat.  Many cats have made their mark on it including the current feline residents.  All have loved it but none as much…

A Smile on the Face of the Tiger

For this week’s photo challenge I give you the sleeping Tiger. I do believe that is a smile on his face. Smile ~ Susanne
