Insights from Tiger and Benji and other cat stories

Daily Prompt: Relax

‘Relax!’ they said as if relaxing 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 Cat magazine.  They’re looking for their next Cover Cat.  You’d be perfect. Just pretend I don’t have a camera.” “Sure!  Love to!”   he replied.  “How’s this?” “Hmmmm,”  I said.  “Very… 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”

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 to be seen sleeping, nor to be seen waking up… Continue Reading “Let sleeping cats lie…..”

Notes on Tolerance from Tiger and Benji

More nose to nose.  Less rebuke and hissing. More close encounters of the peaceful kind. Less misunderstanding the intentions of the other. No, I’m not talking about the country (though that would be good too.)  I’m talking about Tiger the resident tabby and his new… Continue Reading “Notes on Tolerance from Tiger and Benji”

Still Tiger, with most favored feline status

This is Tiger and I thought it was time for an update lest you think I was a most unhappy cat after little you know who moved in not long ago.  Not to worry. Today I was out surveying my kingdom unhindered, while the skies were… Continue Reading “Still Tiger, with most favored feline status”
