Bad Bear and Kitten Cuteness on a Friday

Hello on a Friday! This will mostly be a cute kitten photo dump, but first, a mess courtesy of the local bear.

Yes, that is a giant oil slick in my garage. My garage now smells like Johnny Cat Litter.

I buy oil by the jugs (as opposed to individual quart bottles) for changing in the car. It is less waste that way. I had a jug sitting outside in the bed of my truck to remind me visually change the oil. Well, a bear bit it and made a huge mess in the driveway.

I then took the damaged jug, put it in a bag and put it in my garbage bin. It leaked through the bag and through the bottom of the bin. In about 24 - 48 hours it had crept all over the garage. I have never seen anything like this.

I am still cleaning the floor. I don't know if it will ever be the same.

I was personally a bit devastated because I try to be super careful with the local wildlife and take living among them as a privilege. So if anyone else besides me didn't know they like oil (and apparently diesel I am learning) now you know. 

I leave you with kittens! Last week they started walking better, playing, and generally interacting.

Although I did get spit at. :) Not by mama Missy however. I love her.

Enjoy the photos and have a great day!


  1. What a bad bear. I had not idea that they would find oil interesting. I thought only garbage you had to be aware of. What a mess!

    Those kittens and mama are so darn cute! Hope you are enjoying your weekend!!

  2. What an awful mess! Thanks for sharing your kitten pictures. I'm in love with momma though. Torties are my favorite.
