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.
Inkee-Bear: Fire up that new CD! Gotta’ see what that ‘beat’ thing is. Our hooman loves Cuba's music. Spirit: More than she loves me? Inkee-Bear: Probably.
A new CD? For us? A late Christmas gift? A New Year’s gift? Our hooman thinks that music is always a good way to start any New Year. She went to Cuba a few years ago & fell in love with the music. Now she's asking us to listen to Cuban music, to see if we ‘feel’ it -- you know -- the beat.
We're exhausted. We've been taking down our Christmas decorations all day. Kind of sad. All the Santas, the deer, the angels, the elves, they're all getting packed away in baggies, bags, & plastic bins. This festive Christmas throw covered our big recliner. But now it's time to get it washed & put away with all the other things for next Christmas.
Inkee-Bear: "We're waitin' for Santa. Sleep? Did you say sleep? Tonight? The night before Christmas? I keep tellin' Spirit. We have to be patient. But Spirit is--well, you probably already figured it out." Spirit: What? I'm patient -- most of the time. So what if I jump at every little noise? I'm what you call high-strung.
I can help decorate! Trust me. I'm a good decorator. Please?!! I'll string garlands, lights. Whatever you want. What? OK. OK. So I'm better at unstringing. So what? Can't hold that against a critter, can you?
It's a rainy day in 'Sunny, Southern California' -- nothing to watch -- no birds, no leaves, no squirrels, no racoons, nothin.' We listened & watched rain drops 'til we couldn't keep our eyes open any longer. Meowmuh said we were clearly hip-no-tie-zed.
Spirit: What does 'TEASE' mean? Inkee-Bear: It means to 'tantalize by arousing curiosity.' So, the 'CatTail TEASER' is a purr-dee purr-fect toy for us cats cause, as all 2 & 4-legged critters know, we cats are VERY curious. Yes, indeedy.
Meowmuh likes this toy cause there's no parts for us to break off & swallow. It's called THE CatTail TEASER. They come in different colors. I know the girls, Gracee & Sophee, will love it. They're super pouncers & jumpers.
Spirit: Hey, what's this? Inkee-Bear: Dunno.' Somethin' in a package. You sniff it; I'll lick it. What does it say it is? Spirit: It's upside down! I don't read 'upside down.' Inkee-Bear: You don't read period! Ask Meowmuh -- she got it for us at CatConLA2018. She says it's a toy.
Oh, now I get it. So,let me get this straight. Halloween's about scary things like ghosts -- skeletons -- flying, cackling witches -- & something else. Gimme' a minute. I'll think of it. You know, what big & little hoomans shout when you open your door on Halloween night. "Trick & Tweet." No, that's not it. "Trick & Treat!" That's what they say. TREATS!!
