Busted ... and proud

As I've said before, Bear lives his life with his whole heart. He admits to almost nothing and isn't sorry if him being himself interferes with another's enjoyment. As someone who grew up being the "good girl" and always striving to meet a standard that was inhuman, I can't help but deeply admire Bear's outlook on life. Don't like what he does?!? He doesn't care. Bear does what he wants when he wants.

Even more, being caught and having an audience only encourages him ... and you better believe he won't stop until there's several Bear Cat-shaped holes in the wall. He knows how to make me laugh. He out-stubborns me (growing up, my parents always said they hoped I had a child as stubborn as I am ... wish granted!!). The amazing thing though? He loves me just the way I am. When I lay down, he's almost always by my side. When he doesn't feel good, he doesn't hide, he cuddles up to me. He's a sweetheart, a cuddle bug, a love bug, my Bear-ka-sprinkles.

"So sleepy ... this is so comfy ... warm ... soft ... can't keep my eyes op ... "


"Do you mind?!?! I'm trying to sleep here ... WHAT?!?! You act like I'm not sleeping on you ... that I'm sleeping on The Boy. Wait a ... if you're over there with the camera, who's under this ... "


"Oh, @#$%^*&!!!! What's HE doing here?"


"AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! I didn't do it! I've been framed!"


"RATS! I'm never going to live this down. It IS comfortable though ..."


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"What do you mean I'm on the stove? I'm not on the stove! I SWEAR!"


"Erm ... it just sneaked up on me!"


"HA! I'm not on the stove anymore. "

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"Why should I move? This desk chair is more comfortable than Momma's!!"
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"I'm not coming out ... EVER! Don't tell the vacuum where I am!"


"If the vacuum comes any closer, I'm going to open up my can of furry fury whoop-ass on it."


"The vacuum's after me! It's after me! It's going to eat me! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!"


"I'll be safe back here. The vacuum can't see me."
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"Come on, Momma! Give me just a TINY piece of ground beef! I'm not leaving ... nope ... not until you give me some!!! PLEEEEEEEEEEEEASE?!?!?!"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"We're NOT touching! I'm touching the blanket ... and the blanket is on The Boy ... so we're both touching the blanket ... but not touching each other!"

"Wait a ... this is MY spot, Smellie! You have to move! You have one more chance ... move, or I'll MAKE you move!"


"Oh, *@# it. I'm starting to think she's not scared of me. I'm tired ... the blanket's comfy ... I'll just pretend she isn't here."


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ ... torties ... tasty whole chickens ... tuna ... I can almost smell ... {SNIFF} {SNIFF} Ellie's butt?!?!"


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"I'm NOT moving! I was here FIRST! It's not MY fault Ellie's all up in my business!"



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"She started it!!!"




~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"Smellie copies me ALL. THE. TIME."

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

*** OLDIES ... BUT GOODIES: THE BEST OF THE PAST ***

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"I don't DESTROY ... I REDECORATE."




~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"Hahahahaha. If Momma sees me, I'm going to be in so much ..."
MK: "BEAR!"
"BINGO!"


"Oh, FINE! Don't mess with the fluff in the closet she says ... but she didn't say anything about the laundry basket of fluff!"

"Don't mess with the fluff I'm stuffing the pillow with ... hmph. FINE! I know this blanket is FULL of fluff that's begging to be liberated! Momma 0 ... Bear Cat 781,967,391!!!"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"You said you were too busy working to pet me ... fine. I'll just hang out here until you can find a second to pet me. And yes, I know what that button that says,'P-O-W-E-R' does."

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"You mean get off MY desk chair ..."

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"What's in HERE?!?! Tasty whole chickens?!?! Where are the tasty whole chickens, Momma?"


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"I'm not on the counter ... I swear!"

"NOW I'm on the counter. Oooh! Let's see what food is out!"



"All this counter-surfing is exhausting ... time for a nap!"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"These would be perfect for my collection ... "

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"Naaaah NAH. Naaaah NAH. N-AH N-AH N-AH ... I'm the shark!"


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"I know my favorite toy is in the pantry ... if I can just get the door open ..."

"Just a little bit more ..."

"I got it!!!!"

"It's mine! It's mine! ... It's STUCK!"




"I'll just pull REALLY hard!"


"HA! GOT IT! ... Ummm ... now what do I DO with it?"
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"My favorite new toy is in one of these bags ... but where?!?!" 

"It's MINE. All MINE!"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"I'm not begging ... I'm asking nicely."

"I must take matters into my own paws ..."
