Bear says, "Oh, the em-bear-sment"

Apparently as wussie as my Bear, this bear has been treed by Jack, a 15-pound orange-and-white cat, living in West Milford, N.J. When the bear climbed down, the cat chased it up another nearby tree. Neighbor Suzanne Giovanetti thought Jack was simply looking up at the bear, but soon realized the much larger animal was afraid of the hissing cat. The cat's owners called it away and the bear ran off.

Our Kittenish once faced down a deer, who seem confounded that this small cat was determinedly refusing to let him go any further. After huffing and pawing the ground several times, the deer turned into the woods, defeated, glancing curiously once back at Curly, I think to make sure he wasn't following him.

Full story and a couple more pictures here. Thanks, Peggy!
