Happy International Cat Day 2020!

“Well it’s been quite a year so far, huh boys? But today we’re going to put that all aside – it’s time to celebrate you! So put on your best face for International Cat Day!” “Didn’t we celebrate that already?” asked Tiger. “No no,”… Continue Reading “Happy International Cat Day 2020!”

Cattin’ Around in the Garden With Benji

There’s nothing like spending time in the garden with Benji. Whether it’s watching him leap effortlessly to the top of the fence to survey his kingdom. Or watching him hunt a green bean; It’s a thing of beauty. ~ Susanne

Planting with Benji

Yesterday we visited Flower World to buy Benji a new bed. Or perhaps bath tub. I decided to borrow it to carry home the plants I bought while I was there. I bought the plants to fill up the bucket I got at a… Continue Reading “Planting with Benji”

Strange and Soothing Seasons

I woke this morning to a caucus of crows and heavy footsteps on the roof.  Were they protesting the presence of a raccoon?  I got up to look while the clamoring continued as did the low rumblings.  Too heavy for a raccoon, maybe the… Continue Reading “Strange and Soothing Seasons”
