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

This happened some years ago after I first came to live with Bob and Sue. I’d just finished my bath and was relaxing on the desk under the fading light of winter sun…. when I felt a strange tingling in my neck and had… Continue Reading “A Story of Tiger from the Early Days”

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.

The Cats Call Me Sue

My name is Susanne but I never heard it growing up, except on the first day of school when the teacher did roll call. “It’s Susie,’ I replied and so it was until I began working at Prudential Mutual Savings Bank in downtown Seattle.… Continue Reading “The Cats Call Me Sue”

The Trouble with Benji

The little boy was everywhere this morning and being rather troublesome as only he can be. He started out on my lap but when I got up he’d taken over the chair. I reclaimed it but he pestered me by using it as a… Continue Reading “The Trouble with Benji”
