Insights from Tiger and Benji and other cat stories

Hopeful: Reflections from Tiger on my lives so far…

This is Tiger and I have something to say as 2016 is coming to a close and I am in a reflective mood.  One human year is quite long for cats and this one was not easy for me.  When it started out I was still missing my big brother… Continue Reading “Hopeful: Reflections from Tiger on my lives so far…”

Daily Prompt: Enthusiasm lives in a cat named Benji

ENTHUSIASM lives in a cat named Benji . It starts before dawn when the morning is heavy and I am twisted and sleepy and he touches his nose to mine.  I stir and stroke his head and that is all. Undeterred he touches my cheek with his paw and meows quietly. “Ah, go away… Continue Reading “Daily Prompt: Enthusiasm lives in a cat named Benji”

Daily Prompt: Fortune

This is Benji and Sue asked me to tell you about my good fortune. When my mama delivered me and my brothers and sisters it was into a home where forty other cats already lived with human Cat Mama.  From the start I knew it wasn’t… Continue Reading “Daily Prompt: Fortune”

Daily Prompt: Relax

‘Relax!’ they said as if relaxation was the furthest thing from their mind. A condemning word to those given over to analysis and rumination.. Rather than commanding a behavior unknown to some I prefer to learn from the experts who have made it their life and art… Continue Reading “Daily Prompt: Relax”

Possibilities

I’ve been watching these two the past few months as they slowly learn to accept one another. Benji is persistent in pursuing his older brother; as fearless and bold as youth can be.  Tiger is tolerant to a point and remains gentle even when tested again and again. Though twice… Continue Reading “Possibilities”

Awakening

The moon waits faithfully for the sun to appear … While Benji and Tiger contemplate their day ….

The many faces of Benji

“Hey Benji,” I said.  “I’d like to take some pictures of you to submit to American Rescue Cats magazine.  They’re looking for their next CoverCat.  You’d be perfect. Just pretend I don’t have a camera.” “Sure!  Love to!”   he replied.  “How’s this?” “Hmmmm,”  I said.  “Very nice.  Only I’m looking… Continue Reading “The many faces of Benji”

My first snow

This is Benji and today I got to see my first snow.  It made the world white and cold.  Soft and wet.  I liked it best from my warm printer perch. I like snow. ~  Benji

Tiger ~ there’s a long winter ahead

This is Tiger and I gotta tell you it’s not been easy training my little brother, Benji. No, he’s not my blood brother even if there is a resemblance. We couldn’t be more different. I’m the strong one with the white feet; he’s the pipsqueak with the chopped ear. … Continue Reading “Tiger ~ there’s a long winter ahead”

Benji the Destroyer

Benji is a very cute and soft kitten.  Looks can be deceiving. Benji is also an active kitten and destroyer of small objects.  Case in point. The perch. The perch above serviced several cats before Benji arrived on the scene.  None of them chewed off the edge… Continue Reading “Benji the Destroyer”
