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.
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.
Watch Inkee-Bear's trance-like routine: knead, purr, lick, nap.
Meowmuh says I go into a trance when I knead. As you can see, I am focused. I don't know why my tongue pops out--but it does. We googled it & couldn't find any reason. Some cats suck while they knead. I don't suck, my tongue just sort of -- pops out there. Then, I'm finished & it's time for my nap.
I'm sittin' with Meowmuh. Her suitcases are out. She must be leavin' us again. So I knead, I mean, I need to get some kneadin' n' lickin' in before she leaves. Then I'm gonna do my next fav thing--settle down & take a nap right here next to Meowmuh. Be sure & watch my video: Tongue Lickin' while Kneadin'.
Spirit: "Did you eat all the treats?" Inkee-Bear: "Nope. Lemme' outta' here you little goofball." Spirit: "You snuck in there before Meowmuh closed the door.You're just an ole' sneak!" Inkee-Bear: "So I'm a sneak. Back off little bro'.
Did we miss St Pat’s Day? Oh, oh. We were supposed to find a green hat for our St Pat’s Day pics but we couldn’t find one. But we watched TV while they dyed the Chicago river as green as my harness. The dye is powdered & vegetable-based.The exact formula is as secret as a leprechaun telling where he hid his gold.
We surpised Meowmuh. We fit in the Medium Sleepypod together. We each weigh around 13 pounds. Meowmuh thought we wouldn't fit. But when Meowmuh takes us out, we have to be in our own carrier. She took our Christmas, Halloween and Valentine's pictures in our Sleepypod--they're on the blog. The pod sets in the dining room cat tree.
This Sleepypod thing is totally cool. This is Spirit's. I want my own! Sleepypod conducts safety crash tests on their carriers. And, when we ride, we buckle up. Check out their crash test videos & info on their Safety Test Program. Seatbelt straps allow the Sleepypod Mini to be secured in a CAR SEAT.
