New Toy

Bear got a Cat Tower, I'm was so excited for him!!!! For the past couple days I was looking around to see if someone would donate one. I didn't have any luck and gave up. Than Bill Came over to pick up a Kitten I rescued from an apartment complex, I could only help her for one night and Bill runs a cat rescue where I foster from sometimes. He had the cat tower in his Truck and asked if I wanted it? I was so excited I asked him, "Are you serious?" and he was!!!!!

Bear is still getting used to it, I have to put him on there to play. I don't think he even knows what it is yet but I know he'll to scratch and lounge on it soon.

Other than that, Bear is doing great. His eyes only water when he gets a little scared so now I know not to make any sudden movement or noises around him. I don't want to scare him. He's such a big boy! Bill even commented on healthy Bear looks and even thinks he will live a long life with us. I sure hope so, I don't want to lose him. I don't even like to think about it. I'm just thankful that my Bear is doing better. He has changed my life and is such an amazing cat.

Full of Spunk

Bear Has been Full of energy all day and even all night. He's been climbing all over everything in the garage and that's not like him. It's like he's gotten a burst of feel good energy. He jumped up on the dresser knocked everything off it and took a nap, Jumped on top of his litter box and looks at us bright eyed and happy, Than my husband and I were in the drive way and Bear jumps up on the tires and Meows! Like he's calling, "hey come here!" it was just so cute and I did snap a photo of him, it's not clear but it will do.

I was getting worried about Bear for a couple days. His eyes were getting extremely watery! I started him on 500MG of L-Lysine twice a day. I felt like I was pushing it with the milligrams but I think he was having a Herpes flare up, after 2 days I decided to give him some eye drops for inflammation in his eyes because I noticed the inner eye lid was showing, than I gave him is eye cream from the first Vet visit and finally his eyes clear up, I was so relieved. I can see his pretty green eyes again. He's such a handsome boy.

He also loves having short hair now. I don't know how I'm going to keep it shaved for him. I don't want to take him to get groomed and it stress him out. He seems relieved of the hair by just the way I see him laying sometimes. It's just that "Oh yea, man I feel good" look." lol

Bear is Happy and He's doing good right now!

My Bear is getting better.

I gave bear his eye drops for a few days. The Vet did tell me to stop because Bears eye was starting to get very cloudy. He told me it's probably scar tissue.

Bear is doing great now. I did move him back to the garage though. He was depressed in the bathroom and just wasn't healing. I felt like if I left him in there he would just get sick again. As soon as I put him in the garage he perked up right away!!! The next couple days his eye improved and it wasn't as cloudy! He has a big garage to run around in now and is so happy. It wasn't fair to Bear leaving him inside. He didn't want that, his place is in the garage, it makes him happy.

I glad he is doing better. A weight has lifted. People who have seen Bear told me he looks like a happier kitty. I think bear is enjoying having short hair. I will need to keep shaving him if he let's me.

I've been cleaning bears ears out everyday still. They are still very dirty and are itchy. I'm determined to get them dirt free. It may take months since I do it a little every day.

Bear is starting to nip at me alot now. I don't know why. Maybe is wants to put his scent on me? It's never a, I wanna hurt you bite, it's always soft. Bear is always so gentle with me.
