iBear got up early to work this morning only to find that he could barely move after yesterday’s activities in the woods. He was stiff and in lots of pain, making him very grumpy and touchy to be around. Then he got growled at by eBear.


iBear wasn’t sure why he was growled at for something he didn’t do, but assumed eBear was just stressed out, which was confirmed in her post before this one.


Being depressed and in pain was not how iBear wanted to start the day. He decided to keep quiet and let eBear scratch and claw and stomp around until she left. Sometimes it’s better to not growl back.


iBear knows when something’s bothering eBear. After 23 years together in the forest, some things are obvious and provoking the eBear is not worth the trouble. iBear is not a very social bear and hates all the other animals in the forest, so it really bothers him when his eBear is angry with him.


iBear can’t live without eBear and just has to wait for eBear to calm down and come home. No matter how angry eBear gets with iBear, iBear knows eBear doesn’t mean to show her teeth and claws at home and will anxiously wait for her to come back. By the time she returns, iBear will have forgotten about being growled at anyway.

It’s a Painful Kind of Love

Bear bitching at cubGROWL!!

eBear is in a foul mood today!  Stay out of her way. Seriously, she is in no mood for anybody’s bullshit.

This also means that her expressions of affection will be more……aggressive than normal.


Normal eBear affection looks like this:

bear hug

Grumpy eBear affection looks like this:Bear Fight






Lunch with a grumpy eBear looks like this: grumpy ebear feeding






Meetings with a grumpy eBear look like this:bear squabble






Sadly, this is how a grumpy eBear says goodbye to her mate before leaving for a long, hard day fighting for survival in the carnivorous forest:






I apologize iBear and will make it up to you with fish and snuggles when I get home
