A Look Back at Benji and the Fair

The State Fair in Puyallup is up and running this year albeit with safety precautions in place – masks worn inside and out. We went on a rainy day last week and it was a different experience, but the same in many ways. We… Continue Reading “A Look Back at Benji and the Fair”

Some Things Never Change

This is Tiger, who despite the name, is a mellow fellow. This is Benji – a sweet boy and lots of fun but not mellow at all – perhaps you can tell by the eyes. One morning Tiger dropped by my office for a… Continue Reading “Some Things Never Change”

Benji and the Plant

I looked out the back door and this is what I saw. “Whatcha doing there Benji?” “Benji?” “Taking a nap Sue.  At least I was, before you….   oh never mind.” “Why there Benji?  I’ve never seen you sleep there before.” “Maybe that’s why… Continue Reading “Benji and the Plant”

A Story of Tiger from the Early Days

Benji’s New Perch

As much as Benji loved his perch he’d obviously outgrown it.  It was time for an upgrade. So I found a nice one at the pet store and brought it home. “What do you think Benji?” I asked. “Hmm,” he said.  “You could have… Continue Reading “Benji’s New Perch”

Cats and Crows from the Office

Benji and I are in the office. He’s paying attention to the crows out front. They’re getting materials for nesting, twigs and soft materials like this. I watch the pair wishing them good luck. I notice Benji has disappeared and I hear some commotion… Continue Reading “Cats and Crows from the Office”

A Conversation with Benji in Quarantine

“When’s it gonna end, Sue?” “What’s that Benji?” “This confinement. It’s getting on my nerves.” “It’s only been a week Benji.  Besides. You’re not in quarantine.” “But you are Sue. And it feels longer in cat years.” “I suppose it does Benji. But it… Continue Reading “A Conversation with Benji in Quarantine”
