The Bear (@MYSADCAT)

The Bear - aka @MYSADCAT - is, by some distance, the most polite cat I've ever met. When he wants food, he asks for it not with a meow, but by nodding eagerly towards the food cupboard. Now 20, and a bit of a Benjamin Button cat (he's starting to look something like his age now but looked older at 5 than he did at 17), he has more of a meeoop than a meow: a noise that, despite its gentle nature, can pull noisily at your heart strings with its central question, which usually seems to translate as, "Can you tell me why I am a cat, please?" While other cats throw their weight about in various ways, punching each other & killing rodents, The Bear adopts a pacifist lifestyle and prefers to spend the day following me around, staring at me with his big saucer eyes, which seem to contain all the world's sadness. I did once catch him sitting alone with a dead mouse but I think another cat had killed it, and he just wanted to read some elegiac poetry to it.

My cat Madam (who departed for the Fortnum and Mason branch of cats in space earlier this year) was just the same. A keen botanist and biologist, she spent most of her life asleep. When awake she occupied her hectic 3 hour schedule with staring at me through aquamarine eyes, sniffing plants, watching ants, and meowing when I whistled any Vivaldi. I miss her.

I have quite fallen in love with The Bear. I can't even remember when I stumbled across a photo, but immediately I wondered who can this cat be with those intense eyes? What a charming and beautiful fellow.

I love The Bear and miss intensely your daily posts of him on Facebook. Whatever happened to that and other postings of your other cats? They made my day every time.
I own two of your books through the Book Depository. I have five cats and they all live in Illinois; I now reside in Las Vegas and spend my time with my nephew's cat, Merlin. I should start a blog about him.

Thank you for all you do. I find everything quite interesting and I love to read what you write and have to say.
