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 ;)
