Mancat Monday: Aye Aye, Captain!

What's funner than Talk Like a Pirate Day? Not much, that's what.

Around here, it is indeed more accurate to call it Meow Like a Pirate Day. This is in large part because the kitties are the most talkative of the creatures in our home. (Although the largest furbaby in the house, pup Astrid is, vocally speaking, essentially mute.) What's more, my mancat Evan is arguably the most likely to jibber jabber. So, how purrfect that Meow Like a Pirate Day falls on Mancat Monday!


For the Caturday Art blog hop this weekend, we shared a drawing I made of of Evan as a pirate with his fair share of treasure, a celebratory drink, and a feathered friend.


Evan, though, wanted another drawing, a brand new one to share on the big day itself. After all, it's not Meow Like a Pirate Day and Mancat Monday every day.

Luckily, Evan let me meet him in the middle with our new drawing. For this new one, Evan gave me only one rule, and that was that he had to be the pirating captain of his very own ship. That seemed reasonable enough. But then there was the fact that I, myself, have been craving drawing some autumn art. So, what happens when you're trying to create a proper purring pirate while also attempting to satiate your autumnal yearning? Apparently, this is what happens:


So, there. A little, well, abstract, I guess you could call it. Pirate Captain Evan traversed the sea of autumn leaves, where at least he got his hands on that golden rake. (Honestly, I don't know what goes on up there in my head sometimes. Strange things.)

A wonderful Monday to all of our furiends!

Our Tip of the Day:
Remember to take precautions to keep your furbaby safe and healthy this autumn. Cooler weather often means open windows, so please make sure that all screens are securely in place  and escape artist proof. Also remember that autumn has its very own set of allergens, such as mold. Especially if your furbaby has known allergies and/or asthma, be cognizant of when and how long windows are open and therefore the home exposed to allergens. If you or even a neighbor are mowing or raking leaves, it may perhaps be best to shut all windows to prevent spurring any allergic reactions or asthma attacks. Autumn is a beautiful time of the year, but please still take precautions when and where needed.

  1. We love your Evan pirate art and agree that every pirate cat should have a parrot! But wow to the second drawing, with the little boat on the bed of autumn leaves and the reminder to keep the windows safe from escape adrtists...just marvelous! There is no end to your creativity and always look forward to your unbelievably inventive posts!
