Cat Tales from the Office

I’m in my office drinking my morning coffee when I hear a meow at the door. “Someone wants to see you,” Bob says as he enters with my refill and lets Benji in who immediately finds my lap. Sweet boys both. Tiger follows and…

Benji and the High Life

I looked out my office window and this is what I saw. “Benji!” I yelled.  “What are you doing up there?  Have you forgotten already?” “What’s that Sue?” “Have you forgotten how I had to rescue you from the top of the dryer just…

The Distress Call

Cats talk.  Really, they do. With their eyes. With their tail. And with their voice. This morning Benji used his voice to issue the distress call, not urgently but definitely. I wandered around the house looking for him but he was not in the…

Benji’s Fishy

I found his little Fishy in the closet the other day where it had disappeared for months.  It’s small and flat so it slips (too) easily under doors, couches, stoves or what have you. Benji fell in love with it all over again like…

It’s a Cat’s Life

A Saturday afternoon. House is clean, fire’s warm, waiting for family to arrive. These boys think all the fuss is for them. Well. At least for now, it’s a cat’s life. ~  Susanne

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…
