Welcome to Momma Kat and Her Bear Cat

Welcome to Momma Kat and Her Bear Cat. This blog is dedicated to my cat Bear, who entertains just about every one, including himself. I've been posting a lot of Bear related items to my Facebook page and was encouraged by my friends to start a dedicated blog (it remains to be seen whether they really want to read a separate blog or are just tired of all my Facebook cat-related posts).

Why is Bear extraordinary? He's the perfect combination and interplay of big heart and big attitude. Loves are his favorite, then food, then play. But he's not your typical sweet pussy cat. He loves to be mischievous and point out when he is not getting the attention he deserves. This usually involves deciding on a plan, making sure I am watching him, and then executing said plan (like sticking his paw in the toaster or knocking things in the toilet). So he can be a bit of a $#!+ disturber at times, but I'm pretty sure it's not out of meanness, but instead a way for him to get what he wants (he is the cat after all). It's all about him, all the time, except for when he doesn't want it to be that way. I'm mostly happy to oblige and go along for the ride. Above all, he's extraordinary because he is perfect for me. I admire his stubbornness and spirit, while appreciating his great capacity to love. He inspires me, makes me laugh and keeps me honest (he knows the things I shouldn't be doing just as well as he knows what he shouldn't be doing). Some times we are crazy together and chase each other around, but more often than not, we are snuggling on the couch. I wouldn't change either, or all the shades in between, for the world. At times, I'm awed by this little, living, furry thing that brings me so much happiness (and pain, he does have fangs and claws too) and I'm reminded that life is a miracle and something to cherish - whether it be mine or his.

Right now, I envision three main "labels" (you can see all posts for a label by clicking on that label at the end of the post) for the blog: C) Current events, A) Awareness (issues I feel strongly about and want to highlight), and T) Throwback (stories from the 9 years of Bear's life to this point). Yes, those three items spell "CAT;" it was intentional. I plan separate tags for my entries (Momma Kat) and those from Bear (Bear Cat). Yes, occasionally, Bear might even grace the blog with a thought or two (he has many, though most are not appropriate for a general audience). As I am sarcastic and use wit to cope with all the absurdities of life, you will see that Bear is the same (if only because I'm the one interpreting for him). Just as a warning, some times I make jokes (about myself and Bear) that confuse people because the matter is so serious. That is how I cope. I would not say the same things about anyone else for fear that it might be interpreted as not taking the situation seriously or minimizing the seriousness of the situation. But some times, the matter is too much (absurd, ridiculous, out-of-my-control, devastating, etc), that the best way I know how to manage it is to make it sarcastic or funny or anything besides down right depressing.

I'd love feedback! Please let me know what you like and don't like! Every thing is up for grabs here, except for the cat himself: He's mine! But I will share him with you :)
