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 love playing hide-&-seek. Gracee's hiding. But anyone can see her orange tail sticking out of the orange carpet! I'm gonna' play like I don't know what's under the carpet. Like, she's hiding...& I'm seeking. I'll just poke here...then there. Oooo, she growled. Again. That did it. She yowled & split. Funny!
We're just play-fighting. Meowmuh knows we're just playin' so she doesn't say anything. Besides, Sophee is such a wee one. I'm 2x her size, as U can C. So, I stay on my back & she jumps on me. She can't hurt ME & she's way 2 cute 2 hurt her. At the end, she wants me 2 chase her. And, I do, like any cool guy would.
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!"
