TIGER'S TALES

Hi, my name is Tiger and I'm in charge today. My mom had a busy weekend and turned the blog over to me. So I have a tail, um, a tale for you.

Some of you readers have already met me.
If you haven't, I'm pleased to have new friends.


One of my favorite things to do is ride on the lawnmower, as long s it's sitting still. It sort of spooks me when the motor is running. It makes so much noise. When my brother, Mom's human son, cuts the engine, I hop aboard. Then Mom takes my picture. She does that a lot. I don't know why.



I also like to sit on top of the van and look at the world. Birds fly by. The wind blows leaves across the grass. A butterfly lights on a flower to eat its dinner. A cottontail rabbit runs across the field. 



But the most fun of all is climbing the giant mesquite and elm trees. From the high branches I can see the whole world.


Then the sun sets, and Mom makes me come inside the house. No fun. I want to chase the night creatures. But she tells me it's bedtime. I sometimes run from her, but she knows how to get my attention. She rattles the sack with treats inside. Oh, yummy. How can a guy resist?


And there is my tale for today.
What about you?
Do you like to mow the grass?
Do you like to climb trees?
Do you like to chase the night creatures?
What is your favorite thing to do?

Oh! And Mom said I need to mention the SCBWI BookStop. It ends November 30, so if you haven't had a chance to stop by and say "Hi" to Princess Breeze, please do. She'd love for you to visit. Here's the link. (The link has been corrected. Sorry about that.)


When you start your Christmas shopping, books make great gifts for children and teens.
Thank you.

Happy Reading!

  2. Tiger reminds me of a cat I once had. My first and only cat because my husband was really allergic to her. Glad Tiger has been having so much fun.

    1. I understand the allergies, Natalie. My youngest son is allergic to cats, but he lives in California now. When he comes to visit, he brings his pills. Have a great week.

  3. Tiger probably doesn't like the vacuum cleaner either.

    One ear is a little different - what happened to it?

    1. You're right, Diane. I usually vacuum when the cats are outside. Yes, he has an injured ear. When he came to my house eight years ago, he was in bad shape. Some cat or dog had worked him over. Ear mites and wounds. He was really ugly, I thought at the time. But he is the sweetest cat I've ever had. And today, he is beautiful. This fight is likely the reason he has FIV. He's doing well. God sent him to me to care for.

  4. Sure can pose away as you take the world in. Treats always do the trick. Pat won't even let us out, how rude.

    1. Ha,ha. Tiger does like to pose for me. Sorry Pat won't let you out. Maybe if you're real nice, he'll take you for a walk. Have a great week.

  5. Train him to mow the lawn and you'll have it made!

    1. Ha,ha! Tiger would love that, Lee. He does sometimes climb on top of the van and comes down when he wants to. He's figured out I can't reach him there.

    1. He is a cool character, Karin. Thanks.
      Thanksgiving was quiet, but I enjoyed it. My family is so scattered we don't see each other often. Hope you had an awesome Thanksgiving too.
