Remembering Benny

Cee’s Black & White Challenge: Pets or stuffed animals

Benny the cat, also known as the Jackadgery Panther was quite a formidable character. He has been seen chasing dogs up the driveway off the property. Not small dogs a German Shepherd, a Cattle Dog as well as smaller ones have all felt the sting of a claw.

Old Geoff my neighbour would come visiting and his dog, Callum,who went everywhere with Geoff, would walk with him as far as the front gate and then would turn around and go home. If Geoff drove, Callum would stay in the car.

I came home from work one day and found Benny asleep on the chair with his stuffed dog which he would move around the house as he felt. Yes fierce Benny did have a soft side. Benny has been gone for a few years now. So this fits both prompts, pets and stuffed animals.

  1. What a lovely boy Benny was – his character seems to change from bold adventurer to softie as the slider changes the colours: so clever!
    My old boy, Bozzy the greyhound, also had a much loved brown bear that he liked to rest his head on in bed!
    They’re all so worth remembering… πŸ™‚

    1. Sweet isn’t a word to describe Benny. He was the boss around here and everyone knew about that. Perhaps he should have worked a bit more on his cuddling technique πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

    1. He most certainly was. He had many sides some good some downright evil. When my youngest was small he used to chase her around the garden after laying in wait for her to run by πŸ˜€
