Follow Mr Bear

Due to overbearing demand (well, about twelve people) Mr Bear the British Shorthair now has his own Twitter feed. It saves me clogging up my timeline with constant cat-related rambling (though that will inevitably continue) and gives him a chance to practice his grammar. You can follow him here: twitter.com/FollowMrBear

Here are a few little snapshots for your amusement. It has been a while since I did an update! The fat little furry fiend is now a lanky, long-legged adolescent who likes Parma Ham, Buffalo Mozzarella and the odd scrap of Rump Steak.

Here he is with his latest toy: the Treat Truck. Mr AMR fills the back up with treats, and Mr Bear chases the truck. They have hours of fun together whilst I hoover up all of the fur that flies into the air.

A sleeping picture for you…

..and finally, THIS is how Bear was lying when I Skyped home from America:

What a divvy! But I love him. Even though my life is being slowly ruined by cat hair!

  1. yes, the cat hair can be horrible. my boyfriend and I have 3 in an apartment. Its a never ending ordeal. but mr. bear is so cute!! very adorable little face :)

  2. Just want to say I read your blog and really enjoy it but don’t often comment – I love Mr.Bear! And don’t even really love cats in general, but Mr.Bear is the cutest cat ever. I don’t have twitter but might consider just to see what Mr.Bear is up to!

    • Haha, that’s sweet! I’ll post more pics of him up here soon though xx

      • Oh my goodness I have just seen Mr Bear, how lucky you are to have such an adorable friend. I have a kitten that I rescued some months back after losing my Billy at the tender age of 23 all but two months. I miss him so much even after 7 months he was my best friend and we went through such a lot over the years and then suddenly he wasn’t well. Still he is sleeping peacefully now.

  3. Mr. Bear is adorable! What a sweet cuddly boy he is!

    Antoinette-Very. Strange. Comment.

  4. hahahaha yes I know what you mean. my life already is controlled by my dogs fur. I have a blonde spanador and I can’t wear dark clothes anymore and there are loads of little puppies rolling around everywhere….

  5. Ruth – I have 9 cats currently..they are awesome and have each got their own personality and quirks. I am a crazy cat lady but since it’s my name it fits. I also have dogs (and a cockatiel, Jasper, known as cat entertainment but no worries..he’s a vicious bird who scares all the kitties…and a chinchilla..who is my son’s little baby.) My kids are great but they were more work than my cats and dogs. Thos critters love me no matter what and when kids become teenagers…well, not so much. Stick with Mr. Bear til you are ready for your life to transform too drastically.

  6. Mr bear reminds me of garfield. He’s super cute :D

  7. Love in a mist

    Hi Ruth, no I bought it, it was reduced at currys from £350 to £199.00, it was easter Monday though, not sure if it will still be reduced comes with 1 bottle of solution as well, I had the vax rapide before, it was good but this one is far better, its got sll the tool etc for spot stains and spills, have a look on vaxs website, or there are some YouTube videos of it in action lol! You’ll be shocked at the filth that comes out of your carpets, I still am every month, err that sounded abit wrong lol! Anyway you know what I mean lol! Xxx

  8. Love in a mist

    Mad cat ladies lol! Yep that’s me !! I’ve got cream carpets throughout as well, intact I’m having a cream stair carpet fitted this Friday to match, the secret is a vax carpet washer, I wash mine every month, keeps them pristine, even after cat sick, bloody paws, tea and coffee spills and yes red wine too! I’ve just bought a new one the vax Dual V – ohhhh it good! I can thoroughly recommend it :-) xxx

  9. I’m glad he is a cat, a child would be less fluffy :(

  10. Ruth, have you personally ever found a product for the eyes that eliminated or at least reduced the appearance of under eye circles? Skincare wise, I ask. I read a comment on one of your videos where someone made a comment about the gap in your teeth and it was really rude! I think your features compliment your face beautifully. You are gorgeous! Even if you didn’t have teeth you’d still be more attractive than alot of us. :) Haha. That gal knew it and was jelly!

  11. :D these photos have brought a big smile to my face. Much love to Mr Bear! x

  12. I think I am in love with him

  13. I’m melting over that sleeping picture.

  14. Do I see a large white/beige carpet?! Oh, you’re brave, you’re very brave (your house looks nice, by the way).
    I’ve recently moved to a villa that has tiles on the whole of the ground floor and am therefore looking for some rugs, but don’t dare to go for light colours.

    Regarding the truck, like Abby says, it will keep him fit, so it will save you the gym fees:) I don’t want to say the word “fat” (yet), but with all that laying around on fluffy rugs…

  15. YES!!! I’m so glad that Mr Bear now has his own twitter feed! Looking forward to all those amazingly cute photos of him.

    As for suggesting Ruth with children…Er… It is random, looking after a cat doesn’t mean that one should progress to looking after children. It’s personal choice. I’m currently 22 and some of my friends (the same age) are talking of marriage whilst others would like to have kiddies in 10+ years.

    Ok, I digress! LOVE LOVE LOVE MR BEAR!! KISS KISS KISS!

    • @Helen kiss kiss back!
      @Antoinette haha, you may well have started a long lady-discussion about having kids! x

  16. Love Mr Bear, I’m not signed up to twitter but I think I might just have to now, he’s just too loveable!
    Personally I’d rather have a house full of kitties than kids any day of the week lol! Xxxx

  17. I follow him already! :D

  18. @ Antoinette – get over yourself!

    Ruth, he is too lovely!

  19. Oh wow the treat truck is such a wonderful idea and will help keep him fit

  20. AHH hes so cute! :D xxx

  21. Good God, I don’t think he could possibly be any cuter!! :D

  22. Yay! I love Mr Bear updates.

  23. Hey Ruth :) You seem to love and care for your cat very much. Have you ever thought about having a baby? Kids give much joy and you would be happier seeing your child grow up and develop than your cat :)

  24. I am not a cat person but I love Mr.Bear. He looks like a smart kid when he stares. His name is cute too.
