Mr Bear the Cat: First Ever Interview

mr bear british shorthair cat

Yes, I do realise that Mr Bear is a cat and cannot, in fact, answer interview questions. I’m not crazy. Yet. But I thought you might like to see a little video interview that I did with Pets Pyjamas, a luxury online store for posh pet products! I must say that Mr Bear was extremely well-behaved throughout the interview and all of the setting-up that preceded it – I may have to start lending him out for commercials and film-work. But only if they send a helicopter. And Ryan Gosling. And champagne. Oh, sorry, those things are for me – Mr Bear will just have some whitebait and a little chunk of fruitcake.

By the way, I have a discount code for PetsPyjamas should any of you want to browse for your furry friends; you can get 10% off with PPLOVESAMR. Check out my interview here: Ruth & Mr Bear

    A lovely post for a rainy Thursday. Thanks, Ruth! May I ask, is Mr Bear an indoor cat and is he ok with that? (I’d love a cat but am not sure an outdoor one would be the best thing for a London flat) Also, would you say the scratching post eliminates him scratching other things or just limits it? Sorry, v specific questions. You can tell I’ve been thinking about this a lot. :) Mxox

      Yes, he’s indoor but we have a very large house with lots of stairs! He goes on the roof terrace but it’s too high to jump down from. And every cat in the neighbourhood gets run over! x

    Hi Ruth, I really like Mr Bear and I wouldn’t consider myself a cat
    person! Can you tell me where you got your cat? Don’t know who I can
    trust to get an actual pedigree! And is it a good indoor cat? Thanks so

    Whenever he’s on instagram I always try to say what he’s thinking and post it. We have two cats and it’s always fun to try and say what they are thinking. Your interview could be a weekly spot seeing how his week has gone!!!

    SO CUTE!!! Sometimes I think I like seeing bloggers’ pets more than their outfits… I have an indoor cat too, but I don’t think she’d perform for people wielding cameras (except me!)

  13. October 12, 2012 / 7:39 pm

    Hahaha!! I start laughing after you mentioned Ryan Gosling! Does everybody has a crush on him? Gosh he’s hot : ) xxx

    Hey Ruth that shirt is really sweet the color looks great on you. My cat is too much of a brat for me to buy her such nice things! Maybe its because i named her Smasher…she definitely lives up to it!
