Sorry it's been a long time, Here is my excuse, things have been hectic with my husband’s PCS. First our orders were set solid so we set off with our new plans with Bear in mind, than UH OH never mind our Orders aren't so sure anymore because of Cut backs in the military and for a couple months we were busy looking for a bigger home for us and our furbabies. You know how stressful moving can be and trying to get that in order. So now my husband and I are back at the stage of looking for a new home for the third time. Each home we consider if it will be a good place for bear and all of our cats. You know you're a cat person when you think about them first lol.
Update on Bear
He has to be more than 20 lbs he is fat!!!!!! and he is HEAVY!!!!!!!! oh man that little boy is healthy. I can't believe how much bigger he is. He is still stinky as ever. He poops more than any cat I’ve seen. He is still dirty, since I can't give him a bath. More good news, I finally have gotten rid of the flees on him and the other cats. It has been a battle since FEB. I've found a tropical flee treatment that works great. It's called Revolution. I couldn't find a Vet in Orange park that sold it and for a decent price. I have to order it online for them but it's wonderful, it killed the flees!
Bear is still a little scardy cat. He runs and hides from the smallest things falling that make a noise. He loves to rub his head all over you and everything. He loves to claw at your feet. He lets us know when he's hungry too, he'll bang on the bedroom door by pulling the towel. He tries to jump in front of us when we try to leave the bedroom lol.
one of his ears is still nasty. I've tried to clean it with 1 part vinegar and 10 parts water but once he smelled it he threw up everywhere. I clean the tips of Libby’s ears with this solution and it's done a good job of clearing up her infection and she didn't hack up anything so I’m assuming Bear is sensitive to scents.
From now on, I’m going to just try to record videos of him and post those for everyone instead. It will be faster and easier for me plus you all can see Bear.

Bears Eyes are starting to look Iffy again. I think it may because I ran out of Lysine. I'll get him some soon now that I know he needs to stay on it.
he's getting heavy now! he's 13 lbs. I can see him being a solid 16 lbs. He's a big boy.
Milo and Bear play with each other through the door crack. they stick there paws under the door and try to grab each other. It's cute. Whatever makes Bear Happy. They like being playful. Never any hissing.
we upgraded Bears Litter Box. It now has a Cover over it. He flings his dry litter every where. I had saved Milos Old litter box and found it hidden in the closet so now it's Bears.

Bear is doing extremely Well!!!!! over all he seems like a happier kitty. I haven't seen him go down hill, it seems like his health is steady now.
I did figure out why Bears hair is falling out. One day last week I was in the spare bedroom with him and I was faxing over paper work to the local college. I looked over at Bear because I do get annoyed when I hear the cats licking and chewing on there fur. (don't ask me why it's just the sound of slurps I think.) I was just about to tell Bear to stop when I see him GRAB a CHUNK of fur with his teeth and yank. Right away I call the vet to ask them if I can give him a bath, of course they tell me no because he has FeLV. They did tell me what to do to clean him since I can't get him wet. Which I have been doing.
I know he is yanking his fur out because he still has flees, but as most of you know I've been treating him for the flees. I'm going to try another flee treatment called revolution.
My husband and I decided that Bear needs the Litter Maide. He poops and pees so much more than our 2 cats combined in one day. It's starting to stink up the apartment. I did buy a Litter Maide for my two cats in June and my apartment didn't smell like I owned cats, but now with Bear the cat smell is coming back. I love my cats I just don't want my home to smell like them.
