Hello small world, this is Captain Jack reporting for blog duty.
Life on the boat is interesting (one of the ways to say it) and I don’t like it per se but it’s not a complete disappointment. I mean, I’m so adorable that I can almost get out of trouble 24-7.
As for the vet, I’m not intending on visiting her anytime soon. I can certainly tell you that it’s by far not my favourite destination even though I always get attention.
Being adorable is a 24-7 job. You think your job is hard, I have to play cute, nap, eat treats and sleep and then do it all over again. Do you have any idea how hard my life is? Unfortunately, the only tough cookie on this boat to crack is Robin A.K.A my “dad”. The rest of the crew is simple. I just have to put on my “cutie eyes” as everyone calls it.
My family has recently designed a very painful way to punish me. WATER!!! Do you know that water is my pet-peeve so to speak and I live on a boat? A BOAT!!! I have only fallen in the water once but I blame it all on my supposedly good guardians.
Let me tell you the story; it was about 8:30 one night and I saw fish jumping out of the water and I got excited so I ran to the front of the boat hoping to follow them. Once again, I was in my Freak-a-zoid mood. I didn’t see the fish until that frightful moment when it jumped out of the water and was right beside the boat, so, I did what any normal cat would do…I chased it! I got to the sugar scoop area and it was wet so I slipped and next thing I knew, SPLASH! I was in the water faster than I could say “mouse”. That is my story of that frightful night. That is the reason I blame it on my owners. Don’t you see now that it’s their fault I fell in the water… after all the sugar-scoop was wet?
I have been given many names in the past like Jack-attack or Jackie (my least favourite by far) but my most common/popular name is, and I assume will always be, Freak-a-zoid. I rather like it and I think it suits me perfectly.
Like I said, I have to fulfill my job to all my loyal fans (currently only Alex, Kathryn, and Ingrid but I intend to soon capture more fans with my incredibly good looks). I think I’m doing a pretty good job, for now…
I am afraid to tell you this but I think that my family is cheating on me. I keep smelling other animals on them so I tend to leave my smell on their bed. I think they’re lucky I haven’t sprayed on them yet. Now that I think of it, that would be a good way to tell the other animals to back off my territory…
Well, that’s all I have to share with you…you…you people. Yes, that’s the word. I seriously can’t believe people haven’t written a cat dictionary. Honestly, I don’t know how you, my loyal fans who melt when you see me, do it.
So long my admirers,
Captain Jack Sparrow Morrin
