A Cat’s Day in the Garden

“Good morning boys,’” I say. “Winter is on the way. Time to clean up the fall garden.” Tiger’s ready. Benji too. “Benji,  it looks like we have an intruder.  You know what to do.” And he does. Then we tackle the garden beds.  Tiger…

Home is Where the Lap Is

After years and years and generations of cats it was finally time to replace the old chair in my office. I was waiting to see how Benji would react as nobody enjoyed that chair as much as he did. I found the perfect replacement. …

A Little Cat Humor

“Watcha doin’ there Benji?” “Takin’ my bath, Sue.  Getting ready for the big trip.” “What trip is that Benji?” “I don’t know.  Wherever it is your going.  I’d like to come along if you don’t mind.” “But Benji, you really don’t like riding in…

Fun with Tiger and Benji

“Really Benji, did you have to run him out of the room?” “What do you mean Sue?” “You know what I mean Benji. Tiger was sitting there minding his own business, until you came along and ran him off. Can’t you give him a…

Cats are not Dogs

This is obvious of course but I was thinking particularly about travel. On our recent trip to the Oregon Coast we saw many happy dogs with their owners, around town and especially walking, running and cavorting about on the beach.   I saw no…

Happy Two Years with Benji

“Hey Benji!  Do you know what today is?” “No, what??”  he asked. “Two years ago we brought you home from Seattle Humane to live with us – and I’m so glad we did!  You’re the best cat ever!” “Aw, really Sue? I bet you…

Can We Come Too?

‘Hey Benji. What are you doing there?’ ‘Waiting for you Sue!’ he replied. ‘On the trailer step?’ I asked. ‘Yes!’ he said. ‘Tiger and I talked it over and we want to go camping with you. I thought this would be the best place…

Benji and the Selfie

‘Hey Benji, I’d like to practice taking a selfie. Can you help me out?’ ‘Sure Sue, what’s a selfie?’ ‘It’s when you use your phone to take a picture of yourself. It seems like everyone’s doing it and they look so good in the…

Sincerely, Benji

Sue asked me to draft a letter so she could close it with the salutation,  ‘Sincerely, Benji.’ I don’t know why but here goes. ‘Dear Sue,  I like sitting on your desk when you are there.  You are my best friend. Sincerely,  Benji’ *****…

Wisdom from Cats in the Garden

I wandered in the garden one morning and found Tiger and Benji apparently at odds. It was mostly Tiger who needed cheering up. “Hey Tiger, you handsome boy!  How are you doing?” “Oh I don’t know Sue.  I don’t feel very handsome.  Did you…

In the Zone

Sorry if you have to work today. I think I shall stay right here. In the zone. Happy Friday. ~ Susanne and Benji

Still Soaring

This is Benji and even though I am a full-grown cat I will never be as big as Tiger. But it doesn’t matter. In my dreams I still soar. Just like before:  https://catsandtrailsandgardentales.com/2017/03/19/in-my-dreams-i-soar/ Only better. ~ Benji
