The Deal – a true tale from long, long ago …….
When I was five I lost a tooth and my mom told me to put it under my pillow so the tooth fairy would leave me money. But the next day the tooth was still there.
“Oh!” she said. “He must have been too busy to get to you. Put it under your pillow tonight and he’ll come.”
But the next day it was still there. “That darn tooth fairy forgot me again!” I told her.
“Just forget him!” she said. “From now on you bring your teeth to me and I’ll take care of it.”
And so she did.

All the smart kitties know …
the best place to catch a catnap is on the printer….
take it from one who went before…
This is Tiger and today is a good day because I got to have time alone in the office with Sue, which is increasingly hard to do in this two cat household.
While it’s true Benji and I have come to agreement on some territory (he gets the bedroom, I get the room with grandma) the last undeclared outpost is Sue’s office, which is the best room in the house. Why?
Well, it has the latest in cat equipment for one.
The best views.
Great sleeping accommodations.
But most importantly, it has Sue, for this is where you will find her most of the time drinking coffee, working on our blog, and producing a lap for us to enjoy.
Who could ask for more?
And so I remain,

Okay boys I said. Spring is here and it’s a sunny day. I’d like to get a few shots of you two in the garden okay?
Fine by me, says Tiger. How about this?
Perfect I say.
Alright with me says Benji. How’s this?
Love it Benji. Thanks.
Now, how about one of you two together?
Sure, they say, how about this?
Haha, very funny, I say. Can’t you at least face the same direction?
Okay, okay, how about this, they say.
It’ll have to do I say.
~ Susanne, Tiger and Benji
This is Benji and I am not what you call a big cat. From the beginning they called me the runt of the litter. (No thank you for that.) Sue even still doubts my birthday. Much too small to be that old she said to the vet who readily agreed.
But when I am asleep I show them all wrong. In my dreams I soar!
I caught the sun setting on what has been a very long winter in the Pacific Northwest.
Eagerly awaiting spring to come.
