Our First Post

Well, here we are on our first post. We are writing it together so we can introduce ourselves. However, before we start, we must say hello to Mr. Hendrix!! His Mommy and our Mommy have been friends for a very long time and when we saw Mr. Hendrix's blog, we had to have one too! Okay, now onto the most important thing - US!


This is Captain Jack Kitten (not Sparrow - that's the human pirate!)

Captain Jack - I am 3 years old and the head of the ship. Mommy says I am an Irish pirate because Mommy and Daddy chose St Patrick's Day as my birthday. I came to Mommy and Daddy right after a thunderstorm when a bunch of kids found me (they thought I was hiding from the rain in a storm drain - actually during a hurricane I was swept off of the Black Furrball and out to sea; finally ending up in the storm drain). Those kids picked me up and took me door to door looking for a home for me. I was just 6 weeks old at the time and have been happily running Mommy and Daddy's lives ever since! Well, happy until just over a year ago when this pirate kitty showed up!

Dante - Yes, it is me - Dante Barbossa Alighieri in all my orange glory. This is a side shot to show you my lovely tabby markings. Oh, we think I am about 2 years old. My story is a bit scarier than Jack's. You see I was once a homeless stray. One day the local animal control captured me after I had been badly injured and took me to a V-E-T so they could treat my injuries before I went to someplace called the animal shelter. It was there, at the V-E-T that I met Aunt Susan (some kitties have V-E-Ts, Jack and I have Aunt Susan - we love her!). I tried to convince Aunt Susan to take me home with her but she already had 4 kitties. However, I did something right in all my flirting because she called Mommy and Daddy and told them about me. After I healed up enough, Mommy and Daddy came and got me and took me home - naming me Dante because they said I looked like I had been thru hell. It was only then that I met Jack and joined his crew on the Black Furrball, being christened Dante Barbossa - my pirate name!

So that's us. We really do look forward to meeting other kitties and to sharing our adventures!
