Meow like a Pirate.

LP, " We were invited to participate in Meow like a Pirate day and since we are relatively new to blogging , we are not sure what this entails exactly... so this is our version.Hope you like it! "

Leo, " Once we had the map of where the treasure was hidden... we were off. Ahoy out there!"

Leo , " Oh and we put up our sails so that everyone would know that we were Pirate Cats. The most feared pirates of them all..."

Esme , " Actually Leo, I really don't think we are that feared. Did you show them your outfit yet? Yo ho ho (an a bottle of rum!)."

Esme, " I have to say I had no trouble finding my sea legs though. I thoroughly enjoyed sitting on pirate bandanas while the sea waves rocked me to sleep. They felt like actual tissue paper. Blimey!"

Duffy , " Can I meow like a pirate too ?"

Issa , " Dude. This isn't about us. Let Leo finish his story..."

Leo, " Anyhoo... Yo ho ho ! We sailed for days until we anchored near a tiny vaguely disturbing looking island and we could see..."

Leo, " ... all these monkeys be riding on the backs of parrots. Shiver me Timbers! I'm an Old Salt but I've never seen such a sight as that one!  That would be, all these flying monkeys everywhere. Thee parrots were flying around -yee know sort of flying at each other and the monkeys looked to be holding swords... I be thinking.So we decided as a group to turn back...sail ho me squiffy cats!! That's what I called out to me mates."

Mitalee , " Hmm.Or...maybe... YOU decided to turn the ship around without saying a word to anyone... on account of how you looked ? Arrrrrgh!"

Tulip , " I would have scared those monkeys right off the backs of their parrots.I looked fearsome in my eye patch ! You wouldn't have mistaken me for a landlubber... not for one second... but Leo...well..."

Leo , " O.k. O.k. I heard it enough guys...I get it."

Leo , " I looked like a Pirate Babushka. Arrr.Gh."

Have a great day mateys and don't forget to Meow like a Pirate!
See you soon.

  18. lmao!

    you all were sooooooooooooooooo cute in this post! all of you! good job with your costumes/props and posing for the camera! i loved reading your story, Leo. :)

    p.s. about buying a new camera-- there are so many options out there these days that it's mindblowing! i would suggest starting with narrowing down what you want and don't want in a camera (ie. size, weight, features etc) and then reading lots of reviews. cnet ( ) and Amazon ( ) are often good places to start.

    if you've already narrowed things down and have a certain kind of camera in mind, i could try to give you some recommendations. :) goodluck!


We always love to hear from you!
