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!
