Tale Lashings...

Wednesday Sep 19, 2007 09:17:00 AM

Well needless to say, Bean felt the need to dress meow up for the festive occassion of Meow Like a Pirate Day. You may find more pictures of Meow dressed like a pirate in my Dress Up gallery. Being part pirate herself, she is of course very familier with Talk Like a Pirate Day, which she will sometimes do at other times during the year as well.

I take bribes

Cape Coral, where we live, has a history of pirating in the surrounding island waters, with Black Ceasar being active in the Pine Island, Marco Island, Elliot Key and Sanibel Island area back in the earlie 1800's. Bean already celebrate Pirate Night on her blog earlier this year. They also have annual Pirate festival which run for weekend sometime in February or March every year.

While most felines have an aversion to water, they do make great sailors. They are better for sea voyages than dogs, because they do not need to be walked. Felines have traveled the globe on ships, both current and in history and of course, there were those cats that became pirates as well.

Here is a brief run down of some of the more famous feline Pirates:

Blueboy - A Tonkanese that was known as the scourage of the carribean, rats would rather sink on a ship than jump onto Blueboy's. He so loved to play with his food. When he wasn't ratting, he was busy making kittens. Most cats in Carribean Islands can trace their roots back to this profilic Tom Cat.

Blackie Bart - This feline perhaps the most successful pirate of all time, with the capture of over 400 rats and over 50 pounds of loot.

Annie Boney - She stole a sloop and was just as apt as fighting rats as any tom. She especially liked to attach fishing vessels and steal their catches.

Merry Red - A friend of Annie Boney, she once fought a duel with a Tom that threatened her mate.

Calico Jacque - The queen was known more for her brightly colored coat and her numerous kittens than she was as a pirate. She got more of a reputation hanging around Merry Red and Annie Boney than she did on her own.

Basic Feline to Pirate Translator:

FelinePirateWhat it means
Meow!Avast!Stop and give attention. It can be used in a sense of surprise, "Whoa! Get a load of that!" which today makes it more of a "Check it out" or "No way!" or "Get off!"
Meow!Aye!"Why yes, I agree most heartily with everything you just said or did."
Meow!Aye aye!"I'll get right on that sir, as soon as my break is over."
Meow!Arrr!This one is often confused with arrrgh, which is of course the sound you make when you sit on a belaying pin. "Arrr!" can mean, variously, "yes," "I agree," "I'm happy," "I'm enjoying this beer," "My team is going to win it all," "I saw that television show, it sucked!" and "That was a clever remark you or I just made." And those are just a few of the myriad possibilities of Arrr!

Coming up next...Drink Blood like a Vampire night!
