Insights from Tiger and Benji and other cat stories

Tiger the (teenage) Senior Cat

This is Tiger and as you know I am the senior cat in residence. I shall turn 9 this spring in human years (not to be confused with the 9 lives of which I am on # 3) which makes me eligible for cat discounts. The point is, I’m starting…

Daily Prompt: Relax
