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.
Yikes. This sorta' big guy is a Maine Coon. Is he bigger than me? Dunno.' They are supposed to be a super breed. They have a thick coat with a big tail to wrap around themselves to keep warm in winter. Are they happy in say, Southern CA? Yep. Meowmuh's friend, Lynne, had a Maine Coon named Merlin and he was very happy -- and handsome. Am I jealous? Nope.
Meow to all you 2-legged & 4-legged Dad's out there on this, your special day! If you didn't already know, Sophee & I have the same dad, Mr. Kool-Kat. We have his purr-sonality fur shure. We're laid-back but playful. One big difference: I eat my food, even popcorn. In contrast, Sophee frequently doesn't eat much of her breakfast.
At our house, we have all sorts of toys & puzzles to play on, in & with. But it's the littlest things that are the most fun -- like wrappers, popcorn, bottle tops, hair rollers, ice cubes, even a strip of cabbage dropped on the kitchen floor. In this video/gif, I'm playin' with this bobbypin. You probably already guessed that it's Meowmuh's.
Yes, I'm sitting in a dining room chair at our dining room table watching the birds & butterflies in our backyard. There are three new cats that walk through our yard. They must be watched. Very carefully. One looks like Spirit. Meowmuh doesn't let us out of our house unless we're in our carriers, our stroller or on a leash/harness.
See these two babies? They're not sleeping IN their bed. They're sleeping UNDER it. Meowmuh had a cat named Tigger that loved to sleep UNDER things. He taught Gracee to sleep & hide under blankets, towels--you name it. Gracee's fav is under the comforter in the bedroom. If you walk in the bedroom & see a small lump in the bedcovers, it's probably Gracee.
Meet two precious kittens at the Pasadena Humane Society's 'Neely Center for Cats.' These two little ones are in the midst of a serious kitten-nap. They must really be tired because there were a lot of people milling around looking to adopt. NOTICE: They are sleeping IN their cushy little bed. The kittens in the next pic found their own, unique place to nap.
This is Molly--a sweet girl--the other photo class model. Meowmuh said she must be older because her muzzle was grey, She didn't want to play with any toys--she just wanted to be petted. Seeing all the people made her really happy. Everyone gave her pets & belly rubs. Meowmuh's friends, Susan & Jim, had a big yellow dog named Molly so this Molly was special.
After the class was over, they brought in two 'models'--big dogs--so the class could practice taking their pics. Zane, the one pictured here, was a chocolate lab--Meowmuh said he ran 'round 'n 'round the room. Here he's asking Meowmuh to please play with him with his goofy red toy. The toy is kinda' wet & slobbery. Yuk. We cats don't mess up toys like that.
Meowmuh took a Pet Photography class at the Pasadena Humane Society. She wants to take better pics of us. We're all for that.The only problem--most everyone had super-duper cameras with lenses--whatever those are. They talked about lighting, aperture, shutter speed, tripods, manual, auto. But Meowmuh only had her iPhone.
