Insights from Tiger and Benji and other cat stories

Moments with Benji

I heard him singing from the landing this morning, bright eyed and bushy tailed. “What are you doing up there Benji?” I asked. “I’m bored, Sue. There’s nothing to do.” “Why don’t you go outside and play?” “Too cold, Sue.” “But you had a…

Benji’s Portfolio

“Hey Benji.  Now that you’ve made it into your first calendar, I need to put a portfolio together for you. We need to be ready.” “What’s a portfolio Sue? And ready for what?” “Ready for the next calendar. Or contest.  All models keep a…

Somebody’s Ready for Monday

“C’mon Sue! Let’s play!” “Oh Benji, it’s Monday. And it’s too early besides. Why don’t you go outside to play.” “Please, Sue. It’s too cold out there.” “Okay Benji. But just a few minutes.” “Okay, I’m ready! Go!” “Faster Sue. Faster!” ‘You’re a wildcat…

Looking Up with Benji

Happy Anniversary Tiger!

“Can you believe It was six years ago this month, Tiger?  Sorry I don’t remember the exact date.” “What’s that Sue?” “When we brought you and Shadow home from the cat hotel. Only you weren’t called Tiger then, your name was Miracle.  And Shadow…

Of Cats and Gardens

I couldn’t pass up the chance to share a few of my favorite photos in response to Sunday Still’s Photo Challenge. I’ll start with a picture of sweet Benji on my lap in the garden. Yes, it’s the same one that made it into…

Mornings with Benji – a Cat Story

“Time to get up Benji.” “Not yet Sue. I’m still tired.” “Please don’t make it difficult Benji. I need to make the bed.” “Why? You’re just going to mess it up again tonight.” “Benji, I don’t have time to argue with you. Please. Move….
