95.783% Bear

Momma's in big trouble! Our last post, We have OCD, did not feature Bear - in fact, he wasn't even really part of the post! His contract demands I now share a post that is ALL Bear (technically, the minimum requirement is 95.783% Bear). Don't tell Ellie about this post without her in it ... when Bear isn't looking, I'll try to sneak a post of her pictures in here so she doesn't feel left out (and I won't get sued under HER contract!). This talent ... very COMPLEX! I'm always running afoul of SOME cat.

Bear's rediscovered our love seat. I love getting pictures of him on the love seat because I have it covered in a green blanket - which not only is one of my favorite colors, but also brings out all the magnificent colors in Bear's coat. This picture from 2015 has long been my favorite:



Do you think any of these new pictures challenge the old one for being best?





























You might remember Bear's favorite spot on the table next to where I work. For months, he hasn't jumped up to stare at me while I work - but over the last couple weeks, he's been sure I know he's watching me ... very carefully.
















Of course, Bear's got to make the rounds of all the boxes in the house ... not because he likes boxes but to be a pain to Ellie who loves HER boxes.






And of course, after all this work posing, a cat's gotta take some [more] naps.



And now for the 4.217‬% that is not Bear ... 

Ellie found a new hiding spot the other night. She hates when I brush her teeth. She doesn't usually like blankets either. So I was shocked last week when I couldn't find her anywhere, called her name, and a tiny mew came out from under the blanket.



The Boy would tell you I have 50,000 pictures of Bear already ... and I could just use the same picture over and over ...
My response to that follows:
But I would take 50,000 pictures,
And I would take 50,000 more,
Just to be the Momma who takes a hundred thousand pictures
Of the cat that I adore.

    PS Do keep a count on the residual percentages as at some point they'll add up to a whole extra post that you're owed ;)

  4. Bear is adorable. It's very interesting to me that you brush Ellie's teeth. How old was she when you started? Did she get used to it? My cat is 16 and she's starting to lose teeth. I wish I had considered washing them time ago, but I never thought about it.

    1. He loves to hear that!

      You aren't alone regarding dental care. Kitty, my first cat, was in a similar boat. Then when I got Bear - I noticed his gums bled a lot. He had his first extractions around the age of 2 and the vet told me if I had any hope for him to keep any of his teeth, I should brush them. That's not the norm - that's just his genetics. Since I already brush his teeth, when we adopted Ellie (she was 7), I figured I should get her used to it because she was getting to the age most cats start to have dental problems. A couple years later, she still fights me on it every time. My advice would be to commit to brushing your cat's teeth regardless of how he or she reacts. I've learned that giving in just reinforces the bad behavior. Bear doesn't mind so much. This post explains what we've been through: https://www.mommakatandherbearcat.com/2015/10/watch-out-for-teeth.html. There are other alternatives to actual brushing (water additives, special treats, etc) and your vet might be able to help you choose one - and show you how to brush if that's the route you go. Please let me know if you have any more questions!

  5. You know, we don't see images of Bear while sleeping that often; he's adorable!
    We haven't yet tried to brush Da Boyz's teeth, but I give them some enzymatic paste that's good for their teeth.

    1. I imagine the thousands of photos will not be of much comfort when I must learn to live without him by my side.

  10. Well, Bear...we think your contract has been successfully fulfilled today. :)

  11. Nice to see so many photos of Bear. Although, I thought his contract would be more like 99 % :)

    1. You all should organize and demand contracts! For some reason, we imagine Rabbit would great at coordinating everything.

    1. Shoko, you have more glamour in your little claw than most cats have period. We know you try to hide it ... especially living with Kali ... but sometimes a girl's gotta get her princess on.

  16. Are you sure Bear wasn't a lawyer in a previous life? :)

  17. Aww, I love the shots of Bear! (I would say that I like the shot of Ellie, but I don't think I'm allowed to on Bear's post.)

    I will rephrase that. You look even more handsome than usual against the green.

    1. My Momma thinks so too. She feels the same way about your handsome boys! You should hear her going on and on about how green grass brings out their beautiful eyes. ~Bear Cat
