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…

The Continuing Saga of Benji and the Chair

‘Benji, we need to talk.’ ‘Sure Sue.  I’m always available.  Just give me a minute or two to sharpen up my claws.’ ‘Actually Benji, that’s what I want to talk to you about.  My chair is not a scratching post.’ ‘Really Sue?   How…

I’d Rather be like Benji

I watched the cats in the backyard today. There was Tiger. And there was Benji. I love them both.  But I’d rather be like Benji. ~ Susanne

Benji the Cover Cat

“Hey Benji, remember when you were just a young lad and we took pictures of you for American Rescue Cat?  We had to take a lot to finally get one that was suitable.  They’re all here in  The many faces of Benji “Wow Sue, …

The Kitties and the Catnip

I used to have a nice patch of catmint growing next to the fence, a bit ratty looking at times but loved by both kitties. One day, after a zealous weeding frenzy, my husband asked me to come out and take a look at…
