Ditty, our ship cat, looking magnificent and nautical.
Oy. My. Gawd. That is ADORABLE!!
Captain of the Black Purrl no doubt.
This is absolutely fantastic! I love the perspective and light, as well as the excellent detail. A ship is not a place you'd expect to see a cat - and with the low POV you made her(or him?) look like a pirate captain.
Thanks! Although I'm pretty sure that Ditty does think he's in charge of the ship... XD
Sorry, made *him* look...
Oh, how adorable! And a great shot! Which vessel is the kitty a part of?
Thanks! Ditty is a crew member of the Kalmar Nyckel.
OOOOhhh... so THAT is Ditty! I've heard of the feline, never saw a photo of him! I only heard about the other cat I believe died a while back.
Kalmar Nyckel is a fine vessel! One of the favorites in the Pirate Community.
Thanks! As for the other cat, you may be thinking of Toolbox. She retried from sailing because of her poor eyesight and lives on land now.
Oh? Hmm... Maybe it was on another ship. But there was a couple or few years back of a ship's cat, I thought it was with the Kalmar Nyckel that was unfortunately run over. It was a cat that liked to venture into each port the ship it was with came into. Sad story.
I do like the idea of Ship's Cat though. I have a cat myself, named Magellan, he's quite the explorer. Have had him at a couple events and even camping. He doesn't mind the cannon fire or water. As a Pirate Portrayer, I steer away from a parrot or monkey. Give me the ship's cat!
You're thinking of Chibley from the Picton Castle.
Was it him? Still... poor kitty. It's been a while. Let's pray no other ship's cat follows in the same fate.
Ditty is just darling though! Looks like my cat (but Magellan is a darker, silvery gray with no white anywhere). Such a handsome boy Ditty is. Proud of his ship, isn't he?
Ahh that's such a cute shot! I love the angle and Ditty's pose - looks like he thinks he's the captain!
great shot! Saw him yesterday on the dock and wondered which ship's cat he was... some research led me here... nice art too!
