  1. Oh Bear! You really have The Boy tied up in knots!!
    A baby kangaroo? That must have been a jump and a half.
    Sorry, couldn't resist that one.

  2. Bear it appears you are already doing what you are good at...being handsome and adorable
    Hugs Cecilia

  3. Umm, that's really a cliffhanger there!!!

  4. Oh bear, you gonna have a sticky person to text with too?

  5. Bear, I admire the way you are branching out here but it's pretty easy to catch on that it's you!

    1. I don't know what you're implying about my Dad ... err ... The Boy. ~Bear Cat

  6. Uh oh.... the boy must be running home to talk to you about this, Bear!

    1. He's not speaking with me at the moment. If I'd known this is what it takes ... ~Bear Cat

  7. MOL....good one Bear Cat. You just about had more treats at home and in the pantry.


    1. I'd share my wealth with all the starving cats of the blogosphere! ~Bear Cat

  8. I think the gig was up the moment you asked how to open the pantry! MOL

    1. That knob is tricky! I whack it time and time again and I can't get it to budge! ~Bear Cat

  9. Oh Kittens Bear, you sure know what to meow to get someone goin'. MOL We luv the new layout. We've so gotta get everythin' wrapped up 'round here and work on our bloggy. Big hugs to all.

    Luv ya'

    Dezi and Raena

    1. THANK YOU! You are the first and only person to say anything about the new layout! I don't have everything ironed out yet, but I'm working on it!

  10. Clearly technology is a dangerous commodity in the paws of Bear.

  11. Is your Momma pregnant? You didn't tell us the results. Nosey people ( like me) want to know.

    1. Momma is NOT pregnant - which is great news for the cats, the potential baby, and the rest of the planet!

  12. Wait, what? Is Momma Kat having a baby, or are you just messing with the Boy, Bear???

    1. Momma is NOT pregnant - which is great news for the cats, the potential baby, and the rest of the planet!

  13. Bear, we're not sure you're making the best use of technology, MOL ! Purrs

  14. OK, now I really do need to ask as NOBODY answered: Is the momma staff member pregers with kittens?
    PS I think Momma should get a new phone just in case she gets called into the hospital.....

    1. Momma is NOT pregnant - which is great news for the cats, the potential baby, and the rest of the planet!

  15. have a predilection for doing this as you have AMPLY shown us! Ellie...I think Bear is rubbing off his Bear-ness onto YOU. MK, you need a texting phone. BC, you do NOT need a texting phone. Ellie...I think you can be trusted with one. At least you can say a Cat 911 for lap emergency! Momma Kat...what's up with the teaser?

    1. Oops. My bad. I didn't think anyone would believe I was pregnant. I forget that we don't see each other frequently. Even so, The Boy asked me if I am pregnant so I might've massively misjudged that one.

  16. Replies
    1. I laughed my butt off to "MK, you need a texting phone. BC, you do NOT need a texting phone. Ellie...I think you can be trusted with one." Hahaha.
      {Bear's comment: Don't worry, my Momma has PLENTY of butt left!}

  17. It's like those dreams where you think you woke up, but you really didn't! Poor Larry! :)
    Jan, Wag 'n Woof Pets

  18. Wowy, Bear you really got 'The Boy's' attention and kept him hanging?! Tee hee hee. Tummy tickles.

    1. He hasn't learned to never underestimate a cat. ~Bear Cat
