The pirate princess

Today is "Talk Like A Pirate Day." In the pet blogging community, it is known as "Meow (or Woof) Like A Pirate Day." Bear was lucky enough to be chosen as the feline mascot this year. Thank you to Ann Adamus of Zoolatry for choosing Bear and for her incredible work on the graphics!

BC: Bear Cat
MK: Momma Kat


Daily conversation - The pirate princess:
MK: Whoa, COOL!
BC: Do you mind? Keep it down over there, I’m trying to sleep!


MK: You were chosen as the feline mascot for Meow Like a Pirate Day!
BC: I WAS?!?!?
MK: Cool, huh?
BC: I don't remember being part of a pirate pageant. Or was my picture just so handsome that I won without even entering? I mean, I AM handsome AND tough as nails!
MK: I'm not entirely sure how you were chosen.
BC: Would that make me a pirate princess?
MK: I guess …
BC: Do I get a tiara?
MK: Bear, not this tiara nonsense again!
BC: Pirates wear tiaras!
MK: No, ACTUALLY they do not.
BC: But I’m a pirate PRINCESS … so CLEARLY that title comes with a tiara.
MK: Pirate Male Princess Buttercup Black Bear Cat of the Forest?
BC: Aha, Matey!
MK: AHOY!
BC: What’s a hoy?
MK: No. Pirates say AHOY, not AHA.
BC: Anyway. I think Male Pirate Princess Buttercup Black Bear Cat of the Forest sounds better.
MK: Bear, they are essentially the same thing!
BC: Getting one’s name just right is VERY important!
MK: Shifting around the order of the words doesn’t change anything.
BC: Bear Cat vs. Cat Bear. Momma Kat vs. Kat Momma.
MK: Those names are just one proper noun and one noun. The pirate princess nonsense includes several of each.
BC: Phht. NONSENSE. I need some rum and a tasty whole parrot to wash it down with.
MK: Cats don’t drink rum.
BC: Are you saying cats can’t drink responsibly?
MK: What CAN cats do responsibly?
BC: Bite. Claw.
{Pause}
BC: Point taken.

BC: Can I have a parrot?
MK: NO!
BC: Even a half parrot? Or a non-tasty parrot?
MK: As if you hadn't plundered the pantry enough in the last few days?
BC: There's tasty food in there! Hmmm. Maybe my plundering skills won me the pirate pageant! Or was it my brute force strength to cow my enemies and strike fear in the hearts of my foes?
MK: Bear, there was NO pirate pageant!
BC: Oh, so now you're the expert on pirates and beauty pageants?
MK: Bear, pirates wouldn't have a beauty pageant!
BC: Then how did I win?
MK: Never mind.
BC: That's what I thought. 
MK: Brute force strength? Striking fear? Bear, you spend 99% of your life running under the bed.
BC: Well THAT'S a bit of an exaggeration! 
MK: What are you NOT afraid of?
BC: You!
MK: Exactly.
BC: RATS!
{Pause}
BC: I make a better pirate than you do! 
BC: Can I have snuggles?
MK: Like you have to ask. Though I'm not sure pirates snuggle.
BC: Just because one's a pirate doesn't mean he doesn't have a more delicate side! Even pirates have Mommas!
MK: I love you, Bear.
BC: That's Male Pirate Princess Buttercup Black Bear Cat of the Forest to you.
MK: I love you, Male Pirate Princess Buttercup Black Bear Cat of the Forest.
BC: I love you too, Momma.
