Dear Friends,
I'm going through some personal stuff right now that's rendered me essentially humorless and unable to put more than a few words together - much less proof read. I apologize in advance for the quality of today's post. Please forgive me for the overuse of pictures and the lack of content today but I just have nothing left right now. Hopefully Bear and I will be back tomorrow, but I might need some time to find my feet. Thank you for understanding and supporting us. In the midst of experiencing the worst and most cruel aspects of humanity, it means so much to me to have true friends (and Bear Cat). ~Momma

BC: Bear Cat
MK: Momma Kat

Daily conversation - WHEE!:
BC: {jumping in his desk chair} Do do do. De ... do ... de ... do.
BC: Hmm ... what to do ...
BC: Rip, rip, rip ... rippedy rip, rip, rip, rip.
BC: Hmm ... now what?
BC: Lick, lick, lickedy-lick, lick, lick.

BC: Once ... lick, lick, lick ... twice ... lickedy-lick ... three times a tortie! And I loooooooovvvve ...
BC: What the?!?!?!?
BC: {looking around over his domain from his throne}. 

BC: MooooooooooommmmmmMMMMMA!
BC: It's an emergency! PDW! PDU?! PDQ! ASSUP! ... no ... ASSAP! ... no ... ASAP! BRAT! ... no ... THAT! ... no ... STAT! Nine-ninety one! Nine-ninety one!
MK: Bear ... I was in the shower! What's all this ...
MK: Excuse me?
BC: LOOK at the desk chair!
MK: Bear! I have shampoo in my eyes! Because you started howling like you were dying in the MIDDLE OF MY SHOWER!
BC: The desk chair is lower.
MK: What?
BC: My view is DIFFERENT because the seat of the chair is LOWER than it used to be!
MK: Oh. Yeah. I guess I played with the lever when I was on the phone earlier. There was a whoosh and then the chair went down.
BC: Is THAT what that smell is? You FARTED?

MK: What ...
BC: Oh, no. That was me. Hehehehehe. It was a good one, don't you think?
BC: Now fix the chair ...
MK: Can't this wait until AFTER my shower? {seeing Bear's face} ...

MK: Hold on ...
BC: WHEE! That was fun! Can we do that again?
BC: {looking around} Where'd you ... 
BC: Nope. Too high.
MK: Bear! AFTER my shower!
BC: I'm afraid of heights.
MK: You are NOT.
BC: How do you know?

MK: Because you're a cat! And not just ANY cat ... you're a cat that will climb ANYTHING.
BC: Hmph. I just manage my fear well.
BC: Don't you have something better to do?
MK: Right. I'll get back in the shower.
BC: No, NO! You have to fix the chair first!
BC: Whee!
BC: Nope ... a little too low.
MK: Bear ...
MK: Okay ...
BC: Nope. Too low.
MK: You said that before!
MK: Bear, the desk chair isn't a toy. You don't get free rides up and down all day long!
BC: Why not? It's fun!
MK: I'm going to finish my shower.
{Momma gets back in the shower ... ten minutes pass and she comes out of the bathroom to find ...}


  1. Either the chair is at the right level now, or you're just good at hiding your disappointment, Bear. :)

    1. To be fair ... I can sleep on the hard floor ... so you know ... ;) ~Bear Cat

  2. Momma Kat, please take all the time that you need to find your feet. We are here for you. And we LOVE pictures of Bear, so never apologize for that. Actually, never apologize for anything! Hold your head high!

  3. Hmm, is this not the time old problem of a chair half up or a chair half down? I have the same problem with my cream pot which is either half empty or not half full. You and your mom rest assured we, your blog pals are all here, not half here or there, just right here. purrs ERin PS is there any chance you could get the chair motorized? purrs

    1. Thank you, ERin. You and your Peep are pretty special ... we know YOU have the sense of humor that always makes us laugh ... but he's pretty cool too :)

  4. Take all the time you need, sweetie. People are downright rotten sometimes. As long as Bear sings Mudpie "her" song, she's happy ;)

    1. Thank you. And yes, Bear will always sing Mudpie her song :)

  5. Sending you (((hugs))) and know that you have the support of all of us if you need us catchatwithcarenandcody

  6. Bear, that photo of you flying off the bookcase is PAWSOME! Tell your Momma, that ours finally figured out how to get the google add off your blog so she could actually read your blog...she just clicked the "back" arrow on her screen and it brought her to your page. Hooray!
    Please tell your Momma not to let other peoples' shortcomings get her down.It's their sh**, not hers.

    the critters in the cottage xo

    1. Yay! We're glad you're back! And thank you. You are right about other people's stuff :)

  7. I think you were still very funny today. I am sorry you are having a tough time. Nice photos, I love the one of Bear jumping from up high.

  8. Wow, Bear, that was quite the leap!

    Momma Kat, we send you lots of purrs as you go through this tough time. Know that we all love you.

  9. More room to fly up and down = more fun! WHEE! ~Bear Cat

  10. I have found even though I'm not blogging so much now, that the CB community is terrific and will support when folk are going through "stuff"! You take care, and the pics are great!! xx

    1. It is great! We're very lucky to be a part of it. Thank you!

  11. Chair levers control farts? MOUSES! Wait 'til Anderson, AKA Sir Fartsalot, finds out about this. purrs

  14. Momma you are far too indulgent of Bear, just sayin'...he could of done all that up and down stuff himself by just jumping up and down.MOL

  15. Great job scratching the chair, Bear! And that jump should win an Olympic gold medal! We love all the photos and there are never too many of you. Hugs to your Momma. Tell her all of your friends will always be here.

    1. Thank you for all the high praise. And my Momma appreciates the hugs and support. She feels very lucky to be part of a community with such beautiful and supportive people - true friends. ~Bear Cat
