Benji and Tiger, Brothers

I don’t know exactly how or when it happened, but I do know that these two boys, rescued from previous lives that left them uncertain and scarred (within or without), crossed over from merely tolerating each other to real brotherhood. I only know they… Continue Reading “Benji and Tiger, Brothers”

Cat Overtures

The room was cozy and warm and Tiger was sleeping on the bed alone.  I’m tired too and decide to join for a nap. A few minutes later here comes Benji. “Still room,” he thought to himself.  “Perhaps if I’m really quiet he won’t notice.” Tiger’s… Continue Reading “Cat Overtures”

Possibilities

I’ve been watching these two the past few months as they slowly learn to accept one another. Benji is persistent in pursuing his older brother; as fearless and bold as youth can be.  Tiger is tolerant to a point and remains gentle even when tested again and again. Though twice… Continue Reading “Possibilities”

Tiger ~ there’s a long winter ahead

This is Tiger and I gotta tell you it’s not been easy training my little brother, Benji. No, he’s not my blood brother even if there is a resemblance. We couldn’t be more different. I’m the strong one with the white feet; he’s the pipsqueak with the chopped ear. … Continue Reading “Tiger ~ there’s a long winter ahead”

Notes on Tolerance from Tiger and Benji

More nose to nose.  Less rebuke and hissing. More close encounters of the peaceful kind. Less misunderstanding the intentions of the other. No, I’m not talking about the country (though that would be good too.)  I’m talking about Tiger the resident tabby and his new… Continue Reading “Notes on Tolerance from Tiger and Benji”

Tiger and Benji, Almost Brothers

This is Tiger and after much consideration and with some resignation, I have decided the new kit known as Benji shall be allowed to stay and share with me in my domain. Not equally of course but in part and only after maturity has been reached.… Continue Reading “Tiger and Benji, Almost Brothers”

Tiger woes

From the Tiger ~  I don’t mean to complain but I gotta tell you the new boy is getting on my nerves. I’m talking about the one they call Benji (aka, Squeaker and Stinker, Sue’s words, not mine.) She must have known I was… Continue Reading “Tiger woes”

To Benji ~ from the Tiger

Tiger here.  Solidarity, that’s what I’m talkin’ about little brother.  These sniffles are for you (maybe even from you.)  I bear them for your sake like the soldier that I am.  I know what it’s like to be the new cat on the block. … Continue Reading “To Benji ~ from the Tiger”

A Tale of Two Kitties ~ the waiting continues

Glimpses through windows and sniffs under doors. The suspense builds as the promised meeting of the two kitties remains on hold. Our new Benji is living in quarantine while recovering from an upper respiratory infection. The highly contagious virus (to cats not humans) was… Continue Reading “A Tale of Two Kitties ~ the waiting continues”

Tiger and Benji ~ the unexpected and the waiting

Sue here.  Time for the Tiger and Benji update and it’s all slow.  That’s okay.  We’re in it for the duration.  Our new Benji has been on the premises for a week now and he’s the sweetest, softest, tiniest kitty boy imaginable.  But the… Continue Reading “Tiger and Benji ~ the unexpected and the waiting”
