Oh Marie, your BEAR looks adorable!!!  Really gorgeous, and I think your bear doesn't  look like a cat at all!!  It certainly looks like an artist bear to me - so stop putting yourself down!!

Awww Marie- I love him, such a cute little face-I really love the mouth, so precious so innocent and big eyes......

A cat....hmmmmm.....I really think he looks like a bear, but I guess if you added a long tail and made him look exceedingly lazy, then yes, he could be a cat.....

Those of us who have had cats all our lives will recognize this

Cats life:






run around chasing each other for 5 min

be exhausted and sleep



complain that the kibble isn't Fresh Raw  whatever



ok......enough on cats.

Your bear looks more awake Than I have seen my 2 Burmese look since yesterday just before treat time and that lasted 1 min.

and sleep

perchance to dream

Your bear is absolutely adorable.  He has such a sweet baby face that makes you want to hug him.  Now I seem to remember that you have your first show real soon.  Good luck.

You probably thought your bear looked like a cat because the nose was pink! Pink noses look completely different from brown or black ones.
This is a very cute bear - i really liike his eye placement

Marie, I love the pink nose! :D

It's the "correct" color too. Little cub noses are usually pink. They darken later.
