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.
Spirit: Mewomuh, did U heer that noise?
Inkee: He didn't heer anything or C anything 'cause there isn't anything.
Spirit: I'm talkin' 2 Meowmuh! Quit grindin' UR teeth! Drives me nuts!
Inkee: UR the reason I grind my teeth!
Spirit: The vet says UR the only cat she's ever seen that grinds his teeth.
Inkee: Well, she doesn't live with U 24/7.
August 17 is Black Cat Appreciation Day? Black Cats are the best! We hide better in the shadows, we're curious but laid back, & we play harder & purr louder. Me? I'm a lap cat. I'm with Meowmuh now. She's watching the Olympics. She's clapping & cheering for the athletes. Our photographer friend, Jose Uribe, took this pic of me. Lookin' good aren't I?
Aug. 8th was International Cats' Day? Who knew? Were we supposed to get special treatment? We didn't. Stroller ride? No, too hot. Dinner? Two hours late! Meowmuh was watching the Olympics. She was focused on the girls' gymnastics team. What does USA! USA! mean? She did get us a new toy...I guess that was 'special.'
My little sibs are on "out-side watch." They're watchin' 4 lizards, leaves, birds, bugs & bees. As tho' they could catch anything through the security screen. But I'm lookin' the other way. I'm on "in-side watch." I'm watchin' to see when Meowmuh goes into the kitchen. I'm on food-watch, you know, not bugs but real food watch!
Where's she? I'm waitin' on Meowmuh to come to bed. What's that beepin? Oh, yeah, she's settin' the cat burglar alarm. I tell her we would take out anyone that comes in our house. We are quiet but strong & Spirit's fast, very fast. Together we weigh 26 pounds. 26 pounds of hissing, scratching, pouncing fury!! So, CAT BURGLARS BEWARE!!!
"Ooooh say can you see?" No, actually I can't. Looks upside down 2 me. Independence Day? Cats R independent everyday! Listen up: Holidays = food. Jump on a counter or table & find a whisker-smacking good treat. Not caught? Then it's the purr-fect crime. So, B purr-fectly Independent 2-Day & every day. Don't tell Meowmuh I said so!!!
OK, you gotta' see this purr-oster!!! Purrades, loud bangs & flashes are very purr-plexing to us. It might be fun for you. But we lay our ears back & hide. Meowmuh will play music so maybe the bangs won't be so loud. Plus she'll spray a calming spray for us. I'm purr-dee sure we'll be ok. Read Meowmuh's "Safety 4 the 4th" article.
"Give you Liberty or give you Death? That's easy for you to say. You have nine lives!"
Poor hoomanz...trying to find the right words to flounder...er, I mean, found our country.

Today. Jume 24, is 'Cat World Domination Day!' No what that means? It means that throughout the world, we cats are in charge, we rule, we reign!!! Say it ain't so; I double dare 'ya. H.P. Lovecraft knew. He was an American author, the father of horror fiction. But he knew cats. Read his musings in the article: The Dominating Cat.
So, what's the big friggin' deal? It's our drawer...our wet food, our toys. Besides, I'm not the first cat to investigate a drawer. Curiosity gets the best of every cat I know...especially Sophee and yes, Spirit too. You know what they say: "Curiosity killed a cat BUT satisfaction brought him back."
