Gabriel and Stanley

We thought we would give you something light and happy today. Gabriel and Stanley are obviously good friends - best buddies as their human calls them. And by the way, Stanley is not declawed.

If the video doesn't play, click here.

Today is World Cat Day.  Make today a special day for your feline(s).

Okay, this was going to be a light post but just as it published we finished reading Meeshka's post. .  One thing we are aware of is that law enforcement protects its own, which is not always a good thing.  When there is a violent incident such as a shooting, an off duty officer should not be treated any differently than a civilian.  If anyone else would be tested for alcohol and drugs, so should the officer.  If you or I would be questioned and investigated, so should the officer.  There are far too many casual shooting and killing of family pets by on or off duty officers.  We are glad Bear Bear's death is finally being investigated but it was a dreadful botched beginning and a black eye to law enforcement. Please stop by Meeshka's and read Justice for Bear Bear - An Interview with his Family.

Have a purring and tail wagging day.


  1. What a lovely video!

    The whole issue with Bear-Bear should never have happened. So sad.

  2. Cute video! We too are glad Bear-Bear's death is being investigated and getting a lot of media attention. It's very sad that such things happen far too often.

  3. Sure those two know how to have fun together!
    I am sure justice for Bear Bear will be served!
    Happy sunday!
    Kisses and hugs

    Happy World Cat Day!

  4. We love that video! It sure did make us smile!

    We hope that justice is done for Bear Bear.

  5. That was a cute video! The humans sure let poor Bear Bear down.

  6. We have seen Gabriel and Stanley play together before - so cute and such patience:) Happy World Cat Day to all of you kitties there at Jan's FF - we hope you all get a special treat today.

    Bear Bear must get justice.

  7. That was a very cute video! The whole situation with Bear Bear is so sad.

    Happy World Cat Day!


    Awwwww Stanley just thinks Gabriel is a great big kitty and Gabriel's just baffled by the whole thing!!! Awwww of course they're best friends - they're just rassling and being lovely with each other!! They're adorable!! Thank you for sharing this lovely clip!

    Me and Charlie are keeping Bear-Bear's family in our thoughts and hearts. We hope they get justice for him.

    Take care

  9. We loved your video today - the end where the dog licked the cat's head was terrific and we loved them playing together.

    We are hoping that any investigation into Bear-Bear's death is open and truthful - it should never have happened.

  10. Haha! That movie was SO cute! I wish Brudder Ripley would play with me like that. But so far, no luck. No matter how nicely I ask.

    Thank you ever so much for the update on Bear-Bear. It's so very sad.

    Wiggles & Wags,

  11. We love the video. Gabriel and Stanley clearly adore each other, despite the play-fighting!

    Happy World Cat Day to yoo all.

    Mom won't read the baby Bear story because she will be so upset ~ but we are sending love and always support justice.

  12. What a cute video! We really liked the ending, how sweet.

  13. Law enforcement people should be held to a higher standard and most that I know feel this way. It's too bad when something like this happens.

  14. Oh my gosh what a great video!!! Gabriel is very gentle with Stanley considering he is many times bigger! I love the end when they are curled up together :-)

    Happy World Cat Day to one and all!

  15. we don't even want to know about the bear incident because the maid would get REALLY upset and start swearing again!
    thank you for stepping by, we didn't even know we still have friends as we are sooooo absent from the scene... and that won't much change either, the maid is useless!
    but thank you, and happy world cat day!
    the cat realm

  16. Gabriel and Stanley sure play rough, but love each other!

    Guns just make folks think the worst first - and justified in doing so.
    This officer should at least ask the owner's of Bear-Bear's forgiveness...
    Until he does, I wouldn't trust any police decision he makes.



Thanks for coming by for a visit. We love to hear from you.
