The all new POMTOO thread...with PICTURES

(73 Posts)

Here we go with the new adventures of NEWPOM or POMTOO.

ErmaGerd sent me the lovely NEWPOM. In a box from the CYTEST teeny tiny shoes which I mean 'CUTEST' of course

Sadly, when POMTOO climbed out of the box, it was clear that a TERRIBLE accident had befallen our snack-themed friend sad

POMTOO was vague about the details, but one can only surmise that the injury had something to do with POMTOO's long absence from the various bosoms of his MumsNet friends.

Luckily, at NorksTowers, a similar, but fatal accident had befallen 'SaintedBear' at the jaws of a Yorkshire terrier shock

'SaintedBear' had, though, had the foresight and generosity to leave in his wallet a 'limb donor card'.
This allowed any or all of his limbs and stuffing to be used to help others in the event of his being marmalised.
His stuffing helped a snail to take shape (see profile), but his leg was to go on to an even greater purpose.

After an operation lasting over 17 minutes, POMTOO was able to start physioBEARarapy, using a NEW LEG.

packing up POMTOO's OFRS is a job to be left for POMTOO's next, and most appropriate host PomBearwithanOFRS

So, there we are, a happy ending. Or perhaps that should be a happy beginning, as POMTOO starts a new series of adventures.

Safe travelling POMTOO

You never know, if you get in touch with Antlers, perhaps you, too, could be a POMTOO host.

Bye bye POMTOO


Thanks MNHQ for a great new series of threads. After a few hiccups, I think I've got it!

Love the OFRS.

And PomToo has arrived safely here at PomBear Gardens. The cubs are in a positive frenzy of plans for things to do grin

There May need to be an after hours session ... With alcohol

bear + wine= shock + grin

Glad POMTOO arrived safely. Please take care the donor leg doesn't drop off. It was a tricky transplant, and POMTOO needs to be kept away from all terriers smile

HelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Fri 17-Aug-12 10:17:23

Aw, this is lovely. Glad to see Pomtoo is alive and well (if a bit challenged in the leg department). smile

iggi777 Fri 17-Aug-12 10:26:46

Pom bewar died ? Am glad I was able to share in his brief but exciting life, our time together meant so much!
Where can I catch up on the latest adventures!

iggi this is the NEWPOM aka POMTOO that you see displayed in all his two-legged glory above.
he has gone to stay with PombearwithanOFRS. I think the plan is to keep the blog going, although I must say this picture thingy is great!


caramelwaffle Fri 17-Aug-12 12:01:26

The cousins want to visit for the day... smile


What very very BRIGHT coloured cousins!
Isn't this photo thing great?


caramelwaffle Fri 17-Aug-12 12:07:37

Yes. Great isn't it?

Picnic in the park for the bears (?) smile

iggi777 Fri 17-Aug-12 12:11:11

It's all too much for me!
Hoping the picture thing isn't available for every thread, or I may see things I don't want to dragonbutter

now this really IS scary

picture thingy on just a few sort-of-crafty threads.
Not on CONCEPTION smile

caramelwaffle Fri 17-Aug-12 12:38:27



Oh. Isn't that ^ cousin Emily Norks? You know - the one we "don't talk about anymore"? smile


caramelwaffle Thu 06-Sep-12 23:14:26


Where is POMTOO?




ScabbyColdCrustyCatPuss Mon 29-Oct-12 19:51:25

UPDATE: Pomtoo arrived safely at ChezSaggy this morning. He is just settling in, and the fun will commence tomorrow. Stand by for the first picture.....

Standing by / marking place


Portofino Mon 29-Oct-12 20:02:14

Ooh marking my place too. I hope he is going to make to Belgium.

caramelwaffle Mon 29-Oct-12 21:53:54

<marking place>

ScabbyColdCrustyCatPuss Mon 29-Oct-12 22:49:12

After a long cold weekend in the British postal system, KittenCat Catey administers the essentials to a thoroughly chilled and over tired Pomtoo...

caramelwaffle Tue 30-Oct-12 09:58:49

Arrival <hurrah>

So cute.

ScabbyColdCrustyCatPuss Tue 30-Oct-12 11:59:43

We're going to do a bit of Pombear pumpkin carving later. smile

Need bi-pedular evidence please smile

Katie looks like a very suitable and excited host bear

Apologies for misspelling Catey sad

Can I blame the iPad?
Is that a rum and coke?

ScabbyColdCrustyCatPuss Wed 31-Oct-12 02:46:05

Right, after a quiet day settling in, Pomtoo, has donned his costume in preparation for a busy day being a halloween bear! smile

ScabbyColdCrustyCatPuss Wed 31-Oct-12 18:50:17

Stand by... I've just got to tuck the ponies up and then I'll be pairing some new pictures!

SleeveOfWizard Wed 31-Oct-12 18:55:11

I don't understand this thread. Please enlighten me smile

Portofino Wed 31-Oct-12 18:56:07

He so needs to come to Belgium for the Xmas Market. We were at Mini Europe today and some poor stolen garden gnome was having his photo taken with al the landmarks....

ScabbyColdCrustyCatPuss Wed 31-Oct-12 18:59:40

Sleeve, Pomtoo is the MN class bear mark II. He has just started a road trip around MNers, and is currently at his second stopover at my house!

SleeveOfWizard Wed 31-Oct-12 20:45:59

Thanks Puss, so it's a bit like when you take turns at school to take the teacher's bear home. Now I get it! grin

ScabbyColdCrustyCatPuss Wed 31-Oct-12 21:08:33

Right. We started today with a halloween themed tour round the local area. We started by showing Pom the Swan Fountain, down by Mistley Quay.

ScabbyColdCrustyCatPuss Wed 31-Oct-12 21:09:20

Followed by a nice walk down by the Estuary.

ScabbyColdCrustyCatPuss Wed 31-Oct-12 21:12:13

KittenCat and her friend Holly, showing Pom the Sue Ryder Shop. Notorious for being the place where Matthew Hopkins, Witchfinder General, used to question torture his victims. A very haunted building by all accounts!

ScabbyColdCrustyCatPuss Wed 31-Oct-12 21:13:35

Obviously it wasnt a Sue Ryder Shop in the 17th centuary!

ErmahgerdBahtsErndPuhmpkerns Wed 31-Oct-12 21:15:05

I'm very glad to see Pom has been reincarnated, but shock that there is already an ErmaGerd poster! I'd never seen her around and thought I was original, back to the drawing board...

ScabbyColdCrustyCatPuss Wed 31-Oct-12 21:17:06

Mistley Towers. Remaims of a gorgeous 18th c church.

EmpressOfTheSevenScreams Wed 31-Oct-12 21:17:09

You're very near my parents grin. Shame Pomtoo's going to miss the Manningtree Mudlarks.

ScabbyColdCrustyCatPuss Wed 31-Oct-12 21:18:24

The famous Manningtree swans. Apparently, bears dont eat swans nowadays!

ScabbyColdCrustyCatPuss Wed 31-Oct-12 21:19:41

The Mistley Thorne. Owned and inhabited and haunted by the Witchfinder.

ScabbyColdCrustyCatPuss Wed 31-Oct-12 21:21:48

Pom taking a good look over the 'Hopping' Bridge. Witches were tossed into the pond and swum. Drown and you were innocent. Float, and they hanged you!

ScabbyColdCrustyCatPuss Wed 31-Oct-12 21:31:22

A small argument ensued at this point. Pom wanted to go trick or treating. We dont do that in Saggyworld, so we gave him the pick of the sweetshop instead.

ScabbyColdCrustyCatPuss Wed 31-Oct-12 21:33:03

On returning to ChezSaggy, Pom and the KittenCub carved the pumpkin.

ScabbyColdCrustyCatPuss Wed 31-Oct-12 21:34:24

Quality control...

ScabbyColdCrustyCatPuss Wed 31-Oct-12 21:40:23


Absolutely and utterly brilliant!

grin grin

caramelwaffle Wed 31-Oct-12 22:48:31

"Quality control..." grin

IvanaDvinkYourBlad Wed 31-Oct-12 23:29:56

oh would you just look at the little thing!
loving the costume and quality control- and the bridge shot too grin

What's next for the beary one?

AntlersInAllOfMyDecorating Wed 31-Oct-12 23:32:01

Great to see PomToo up and running, good work everyone!

I now need to get this up and running on the blog...

Norks do you have photos from making PomToo?

PomBear could you do photo entry with a hostess diary entry? It can be a caption per photo, or a whole paragraph thing, doesn't really matter!

ScabbyColdCrustyCatPuss Wed 31-Oct-12 23:55:16

Ivana, I made the costume myself! <<preens>>

Tomorrow, we are doing Riding for the Disabled bears


ScabbyColdCrustyCatPuss Wed 31-Oct-12 23:59:33

Knowing of Poms traumatic past, and the tragic incident with the Jack Russell. we have been trying a little desensitisation therapy with Corky...

ScabbyColdCrustyCatPuss Thu 01-Nov-12 00:03:22

It's not going too well......

caramelwaffle Thu 01-Nov-12 00:11:16

Awww. Haha.

Sparklyoldwhizzbangcatpusswhee Fri 02-Nov-12 13:56:13

Being a true MNer bear, Pom recommended cooking my gammon in coke! confused

Sparklyoldwhizzbangcatpusswhee Fri 02-Nov-12 13:58:23

Aaah! Where did my picture go? Blardy IPhone! sad

GruesomewhereInCanada Fri 02-Nov-12 14:22:40

Can Pom visit anyone? I'm sure he'd like to see the Northern Lights and help me do the cup of coffee experiment at -30. Maybe later this winter? It's only -10, so not cold enough yet?

Has he got a warm jumper and a hat?

Sparklyoldwhizzbangcatpusswhee Fri 02-Nov-12 14:31:25

I'll forward him on to Canada. As long as I can come too! I'd give everything I own to see the northern lights!
