Caring Ben's Tuxie Tuesday

Yesterday I lost a letter, or should I say I realized that I had lost a letter when I went to lay my hand on it and it wasn't where it should have been...in my jewel box.  This letter is extremely precious to me.

So I spent the next three hours tearing apart the bedroom looking in every single dresser drawer and storage spot that I have for bills, cards, stationary etc, examining every piece of paper, envelope, file, box, beside table, nook and cranny.  When I finally sat down on the bed to text Robert (between sobs) about my discovery, or lack thereof, I saw Ben's worried little face looking at me. 


I think he was watching me the whole time!

Oh, he WAS worried about you! OTOH, my human SCARES me when she loses something! I hide... and then she thinks she has lost me too!

Simba said...

Kitties are very perceptive. We are so sorry you lost track of the precious letter. We sure do purr that you will still find it.

Sweet Ben! Let's hope the letter turns up!

Purrs,

I always tuck things away where they will be 'safe', but then I forget where I put them!!

Our four legged friends are always so intuitive to our feelings aren't they?

Wishing you luck in finding your letter!

Oh yes I agree...Ben was completely tuned in to you...he seemed to be trying to offer you comfort with his handsome, peaceful face.

I hope and pray you found your treasured letter.

Not only are the words on the letter precious, but they are written in a loved one's handwriting. I have a treasured Gingerbread recipe handwritten in my mother-in-law's beautiful handwriting. Years ago when she wrote it, I never in my wildest dreams, imagined that one day handwriting would be a lost art.
I have the recipe stored in a sheet protector.
Hugs Madi and Mom

Poor Ben he looks so distressed at your upset state due to the lost letter. We hope you have found your letter - maybe it got hooked up on the back of something.
Lots of purrs and kisses to you Cat and to sweet Ben too.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx & Sue

Our babies are so in tune with us. I hope your letter is found. I understand the pain in losing it.

Fuzzy Tales said...

Aww, we hope you found your letter.

We get upset when our human obviously is in distress too, so understand why Ben would be upset.

Rene said...

Oh, what a sweet boy! I hope you found your letter. I know how frustrating it is so lose something and drive yourself nuts trying to find it!

Random Felines said...

We hope Ben gave you some loves...and you found your letter!

Brian said...

Ben sure does not want you to be unhappy.

Marg said...

Ben, you were sure tuned into the fact that your Mom was upset about losing that letter. Cats are so in tune to their Moms. I will never forget when I had to send my last pony to the bridge and I sat down on my swing and MewMew came and sat right next to me for hours. She knew I was upset. Good boy Ben for taking care of your Mom. We sure hope Mom finds that letter. That has happened to me and it is so hard. Take care.

Hugs, I hope you found it! At least Ben was there to console you!

ooo man we sure do hope you find the letter. Mom misplaces stuff all the time and ends up finding things when she is not looking for them. Ben give your mom lots of purrs and kisses

looloo said...

He's so cute!

Don't think of the letter, Cat, I am almost sure you put it elsewhere and it will appear as clear as crystal where, when you will not think of it...

Smoochies to all the kids!

He feels things

meowmeowmans said...

Ben is such a sweetheart. Our angel Graphite was like that ... very in tune with human emotions. We have our paws crossed that you find the letter soon, Cat.

Oh, and we wanted to thank you for stopping by to wish the mom a happy birthday! Unfortunately, we did not have a great amount of traffic at the senior cat Sunday event, but this was the first time PAWS tried it. They will keep right on trying, and we *know* there are loving homes out there for these awesome older cats!

MTVA said...

I hope your letter will turn up soon. Have a good night's sleep, and your subconscious might offer up a hint on where to find it when you awake. Unless one of your adorable kitties finds it for you first!

Katnip Lounge said...

Oh no! I hope the letter shows up...it will when you least expect it. I'm sure Ben was there because he could feel your stress and wanted to help.

Max the Quilt Cat said...

You bet he was watching you. We get upset when our beans are upset and we try to help. Hope you found the letter.

pawhugs, Max

What a loving and caring boy Ben is!

I say a prayer to St. Anthony when I've lost something precious, and he usually finds it for me - sometimes takes a while, but he really does listen.

I do hope you find your letter - I am sure you will soon.

I hope you find your letter! Losing something precious feels just awful. I bet Ben's sympathetic little face helped a bit, though.

Maxwell: Ben is a very sensitive and caring feline, and you are his charge. You humans are a lot of responsibility for us, you know! We has to watch over you and make sure you is okay!!

Alex aus dem Gwundergarten said...

Huu, Ben really looks worried. What a dear cat. I hope you're going to find your letter. Sometimes it's good rest a while and then search again. I'm sure you're going to find it...unless one of your cat has eaten it up :o).
Take care
