Welcome to Captain's Jack 4th Birthday Cruise!


Welcome to the Black Furrball and to Captain Jack's 4th Birthday Pirate Cat Cruise! We are so pleased that you could join us today. Please watch your step as you disembark from the boarding ships and step onto the decks of the Black Furrball!
As you can see, through years of pillaging, we have been able to decorate the decks of the Black Furrball with your comfort in mind for the birthday cruise. We have comfy chairs and hammocks, and of course there is plenty of sunshine to lie in as well. For those of you who would like, we have plenty of fishing rods and nets, and its a great day to fish. We caught these this morning when we were making sure the fish were biting. Please, help yourself to our catch or catch your own if you would like!
What is the fun in being on a pirate ship without being able to wear a fun costume? Although we see that some of you brought your own costumes (and you look mighty piratety we must say), we do have costumes for anyone who wants to wear them. Please ask our second mate for them. He's right over there, in the eye patch!
Of course, being out in the sun and surf could make a kitty quite thirsty. Please feel free to go to the above decks bar for a cool and refreshing beverage!
If the sun is getting to be a bit too warm, we invite you to retire below decks. We hope that you will like our below deck saloon which was also decorated with our pirate swag.
Which of course the salooon comes complete with its own bar. Please try the pirate niptinis, as they are our own delicious recipe. We have nippagne too and our bartender will make you anything you desire! And do not worry, the rum is not gone. We have plenty!!
Below decks we also have our seafood fest. Please help yourself, there's plenty for everyone!!
And of course, what would a birthday party be without a cake. We choose this for the Captain this year, and it will also be served below decks! We would also like to share this cake with Tybalt, his birthday is also being celebrated today!! Happy Birthday Tybalt!!

Please relax, enjoy the party, and have a great time. If you would like, we do have a contest to celebrate the Captain's bithday. Please follow the link to Captain Jack's 4th Birthday Trivia Treasure Hunt! Follow the directions, and if you win, you will recieve a treasure chest of goodies!! Enjoy yourself everyone and thanks for coming!!!
