Meow Like a Pirate Day 2016! Aaar!




Today's post is inspired by Meow Like a Pirate Day (or Talk Like a Pirate Day, if you happen to be human). Since history is  one of our themes, the Real Cats wanted to try out life as pirates from those days of yore when people said "Aaarr" a lot. We do not know if pirates had cats, or if they did, what those cats might have said. (Meeaarr? Meeaarow? These guesses are nothing more than careless speculation.)

At any rate, for today Real Cat Webster has taken over the body of Edward Teach (c. 1680-1718), otherwise known as Blackbeard, while Real Cat Paisley is experimenting with Anne Bonny's (c. 1698-1782) body. As usual, Webster worries about appearances, and Paisley focuses on what's really important: her stuff. I ask you, who makes the more convincing pirate?

We hope you'll take some time to say "Aaarr!" today for no other reason than having a little fun. Also feel free to use the verb "be" completely inappropriately, as in

"Today be Meow Like a Pirate Day! Aaarr!"
