Contest and Polar Bear’s Story

Happy Sunday everyone! I am happy that I survived yoga yesterday, some of those poses are difficult. I invented a new one too- the sleeping cobra, the teacher said to modify our cobra as needed so I just took a mini nap on the mat.

Today is ” Every Cat Has a Story” day and today’s story is about Polar Bear. Last week, I introduced you to one of his wives, Tallulah. Back in September 2008, I was cat sitting for a friend and I even agreed to dog sit so Rocco wouldn’t have to stay alone. I don’t mind dogs, but I am not thrilled with the walking in all weather and picking up their poop part. During one of our walks, I met Polar Bear in the yard. He started waiting for me and even followed me to the 2nd floor apartment. The neighborhood had a lot of strays, but he was the only one that approached me. I knew I wasn’t going to leave him behind.

I made an appointment to get him fixed ,so of course the night before when I went to get him, he was nowhere to be seen. I walked around like a crazy lady calling kitty-kitty-kitty. I didn’t know at the time that he was deaf. I ended up getting a call to be an extra in 30 Rock in NYC so my niece took over the pet sitting, but she never spotted him those 2 days I was gone. I hated to go, but when one lives 3 and a half hours from NYC, opportunities like this are rare. I am happy to say that I was actually visible when the show aired and when I got back, Polar Bear was waiting. I had kept a crate in my car so I just grabbed him and brought him right to the vet.

This is my best photo of him ( anyone with a deaf cat knows how hard it is to get their attention for a photo). :polarbear. Next week, I will introduce you to his other wife.

Have a great day and if you didn’t comment yesterday, you can today for a chance to win a MEOW bracelet.

  1. Polar Bear looks like a sweetie. Our angel brofur, Madison, was an all-white, blue-eyed cat, but he could hear. He just showed up on our deck one day, and was there efurryday for six months before Mom decided to ask him to be part of our family. He was the sweetest and most gentle cat, and our humans were so sad to lose him to lymphoma and the young age of twelve. Polar Bear was fortunate to find you and get a terrific forever home.

    1. I am sorry about Madison, 12 is young in kitty years, but at least he was loved for those 12 years.

  2. Polar bear is beautiful! He is lucky you found him! It must have been so hard for him to survive not being able to hear 🙁 what an amazing cat!

    1. Polar Bear is sweet, but he can still go a little psycho so I don’t recommend going near the tummy 🙂

  3. Hello! I found your blog from a link at the Katnip Lounge. My cats aren’t bloggers but we are all avid readers of the cat blogs out there and will add yours to our must read list.

    All three of our cats were strays who were looking for a meal and whole lot of love. Very glad to have them here!

    1. Thank you for stopping by and I am thrilled that you are adding us to your must read list. Your 3 cats were smart to go to your house.
