Bear: Part Sloth, Part Lightning Bug


Sloth: a funny looking animal with a long neck that sleeps all day. The other night while I was watching Ice Age (which stars... a sloth. Go figure?) it reminded me how much Bear reminds me of one. I am pretty sure his grandma somewhere down the family tree was a sloth.




Case in point- Look at this picture. He is looking incredibly sloth-like there. On a different note, I think it is funny people think that I green screen my bedroom - this is the same bedroom with a sloth on the bed and a different comforter. That is some seriously good green screening powers!



So basically, I have come to the conclusion that bear is 50% sloth, 25% lightning bug, 20% mountain lion and 5% cat. The lightning bug (called a firefly if you aren't from the deep south) part comes from his love of my lampshade. He likes to be close to the light, ya know? It's only natural, being part lightning bug.



Hmmm... now that I'm thinking about it... maybe he is part ostrich? They like to stick their heads in holes (the whole, if I can't see you, you can't see me theory), and he likes to stick his head in lampshades...

I'm not gonna lie, sometimes I still use the ostrich theory. If I get scared at night it makes me feel a LOT better if I duck under the covers. Then whatever scary monster is there won't be able to find me.


Hahahaha I kid you guys. Maybe he is just a normal cat, but I like to think he is special ;)

I LOVE the Homeward Bound theme song...that movie is great! :) As for the monsters theory...I still run and leap into my bed when the lights are off so none of the monsters that might be under it can grab at my feet...it'd just be stupid to stand by the edge willy-nilly!
Is that really his full name?

HAHAHAHHAHAAA! Bear's resume cracked me up!!! So funny! Especially the Sassy in Homeward Bound part. I love your blogs!!

I laughed so hard when I saw the title of this post, because I had just gone to a comedy show where they talked about this made-up creature called the "Sloth-Bear". Then I saw in the title it said Bear: Sloth and it was hilarious. Anyway, I don't have a cat, but my dog climbs trees, chases mice, and stretches like a cat. So I think that comes pretty close, no?

OMG I adored him in Meet the Fockers!!! He was the best part of the movie!
I tried to train my cat afterwards, they're the same breed.
