I am Inkee-Bear. Some say my name should be Mellow-Purr-Bear because I take life as it comes. I was born in April 2011 or three weeks after Gracee. I am a silky, midnight-black, straight-eared Scottish Fold weighing in at almost 13 pounds. I was very sick when I first went to my forever home but my meowmuh and the lady Doc saved me. I purr most of the time but always when I think of them. View Inkee-Bear's Posts.
I'm askin' all hooman's out there to appreciate us black cats on our day, Black Cat Appreciation Day on October 27. You can give us any or all of the following EXTRAS: treats, pets & scratches, new toys, play time, cuddle time & whatever else your cat asks for. Basically, just appreciate us -- oh yeah -- love us.
This is my fav cat artist -- Jamie Perry. And this is my fav kind of cat, a black cat -- just like me. I love perchin' here & lookin' at him. Does he know Oct 27 is Black Cat Appreciation Day? Somebody better tell him, don't you think?
Sometimes a big brother's gotta' do what a big brother's gotta' do. In this instance, I'm holdin' Spirit back -- it's my infamous "one-paw-hold." I'm tryin' to keep him from gettin' in more trouble. This little silver & black cat gets into more "troub" than the rest of us put together.
Guess you can see what my fav treat is -- yogurt! I'm wearin' it now. When our hooman finishes her yogurt for breakfast, she lets us lick the container clean. I love yogurt! You have to know how to get your muzzle in that container to lick it clean as a whistle. Yogurt! Yum!
We're the "Committee." We meet on our stair landing at least weekly to "meow" & "yowl" -- you know, talk things over, work things out. Not just for us but for our hooman too. But you can never work things out with Gracee. She doesn't even meet with us. Just because she's the oldest, she thinks everything should be her way or the highway. Sigh.
I always "place" myself on this green lily pad-placemat as soon as our hooman lifts our water bowl, carries the bowl to the kitchen sink, turns on the water, rinses the bowl, fills it & "Purr, Purr!" -- serves us our fresh, cool water. Sometimes she puts my fav thing in it -- little pieces of ice or a REALLY BIG ice cube! "Purr Purr Purr!" Don't be surprised by ice cubes.
See the green thing? "It's a placemat for your water bowl," our hooman told us, "and it looks like a lily pad. Cool, huh?" Cool? Dunno bout that. But why our water bowl has to be "placed" on a lily pad is beyond my whiskers.
SPIRIT: OK, OK. Cut it out. Quit buggin' me! I've got bigger & better fish to fry if you know what I mean. INKEE-BEAR: You may be the fastest cat in the house but you're also the biggest guy cry-baby in the house. Wait, hold on! Don't be always runnin' off. Oops. A bit of a snag here. Didn't really mean to snag you like that, dude.
SPIRIT: Inkee-Bear, we're best buddies, right? INKEE-BEAR: Dunno' if I'd say "best" buddies. SPIRIT: Whaddya' mean? If we're not best buddies, then what are we? INKEE-BEAR: I'd say we're siblings.
Stop with the histrionics, Spirit! Yes, I said I got a lizard, not a laser, a L-I-Z-A-R-D. Got it? This little lizard isn't the brightest in the world either -- he chose to come in a house with four -- yes, count them, four -- indoor cats. It's not often I get to give my hooman a gift. Oops, what happened to it? Oh, I know.
