Little Bear

Post by fiffur on Thu Jan 17, 2013 1:08 pm

I first heard about this little guy from Becky. (he looks amazingly like our late Fiffur) He's got deformed front legs that need surgery, which is scheduled for next August from what I read online. (had to use the computer at mom's building to see it) Anyway, long story short.....I sent 50 schmice for her to sell to raise money towards the surgery. Today I found out they sold so fast she wants more........they were very popular. She's also asking folks for donations of other stuff to sell to raise money for the surgery.
Here's the video of Little Bear playing with one of my schmouse toys: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=10200162536848097
The rest of his story is on Facebook if anyone is interested in learning more, or want to help him. www.facebook.com/deformedkitten http://www.gofundme.com/littlebear http://www.catster.com/lifestyle/cat-video-little-bear-kitten-disabled

I have been following Little Bear's story each day. He's such a nice kitty, and I'm glad he's getting a chance to walk and run. (I saw those scmousies. I didn't know you made them--very nice.)

Becky thought since her kitties loved them so much that they'd be good for raising money for Little Bear's surgery. They're durable too, just ask Gateway and Petie!

Or Weezer! Wait, that's not even true. The Fiffur Shmouse I bought years ago (could it have been on Etsy?) was meant for Weezer but ended up being the very first toy my late love, dear little Daisy the WonderBeagle ever played with in her life. It opened a door for her she'd never known before. I'm thrilled Little Bear has a Fiffur Shmouse to play with (look at him go!) and would buy a dozen for Weezer, given the chance. Better get to work, Fif! Razz

Little Bear won a contest to be on the cover of Modern Cat magazine. I'm not sure when he gets his picture made, but it will be cool to see him advertising against breeding animals to be deformed.

Suzzzz....that schmouse you bought came from craftersforcritters.com and helped animal rescues. I've never had pic capability to sell schmice on etsy, though I suspect they'd be very popular there if I did.

Of course, Crafters for Critters! Thanks, Fif. Funny --- that little orange shmouse MUST be in this house somewhere but I haven't seen it in years. Kinda like Weezer's current toys which she can zap into another dimension after 2 minutes of play. Question Question Question

Gateway, GK, and Petie seem to have done the same with their orange schmouse. It was right by my chair last week, and now I can't find it anywhere.

Just a few words from Tat and Caddy Jim - We also had two mousies from Fiffur - a green one and an orange one. Caddy Jim managed to look the "other way" many months ago, and uh-oh scratch the orange mousie DISAPPEARED - couldn't find it ANYWHERE study - I have some others made by an another friend - only one is a favorite of Tat cat - her other favorite is the remaining Fiffur greenie - I've given up trying to find the orange one - How do cats manage to send things off to another dimension??

Caddy Jim :soapbos: and Tat lol!

I don't know but Bij has managed to send a little stuffed duck there. Nearly ready to ship off that batch of schmice for Little Bear.....just need to find some money for the postage.....this paycheck is a short one since the kids had two days off and I didn't have one coming for the previous pay period.

Will be mailing those toys out on Monday, so anybody who wants to order them from Allie can in about a week. Very Happy

I believe that the picture I saw on Facebook must be the very schmice you sent. They are gorgeous!

They are awesome kitty toys. All the kitties here (including Petie) endorse them. Smile

How close is he to raising enough money for his surgery now? Just wondering.

I haven't seen any more sales on FB, so I think he might be there. I know Allie said he's scheduled for surgery in the spring, so I guess he's there. Smile

I hope it goes smoothly and is successful. I'd love to see more videos of him playing again after he recovers.

Little Bear had surgery on one leg yesterday. His owner, Allie, is going to visit him today. All reports on FB are good so far. He will have surgery on the other leg in about 6 weeks if all goes as planned.

Thanks for the updates and the emailed pics........glad to hear he's doing well and is home again with his beloved meowmy. I have a feeling he will learn very fast how to use his new legs when all this is said and done. I sure hope she posts another video of Little Bear playing with a schmouse, so we can see how his style changed along with his legs.
