Day Dreams of my seafaring Cap'n!!!

Madi's Dad thought she was sitting on the back of the couch to be near him. I had to burst his bubble last night by telling him Madi was daydreaming about her pirate Cap'n who is landlocked in Collie-rado. His ship is permanently in dry dock never to sail the sea of love. As you can tell by the above mopey picture, she has come to terms with destiny.
She will sit here under the sailboat day dreaming about Cap'n Ripley, her favorite sweet talking,
swashbuckler Pirate Cat.
Cap'n Ripley is the very mysterious feline brother of the famous Mayzie the lovely brindle dog. Mayzie is Cap'n Ripley's translator. Madi does not speak Piratenese and the Cap'n doesn't speak Southernese. When Mayzie told the Cap'n Remington was trying to win Madi's heart with gifts. He ranted, raved and talked of gangplanks and duels and threatened Rem with his 4 sets of very sharp itty bity swords. Rem is a lover not a fighter so he suggested they engage in verbal negotiations rather than physical conflict.
Rem sent the Cap'n a message that he and Madi were FRIENDS only.
Madi was sleeping very soundly during the turmoil, which made her Dad ponder if she even
CARED.
PeeS I doubt very seriously that Cap'n Ripley knows Rem is a gentle giant.


HARLEY UPDATE: We are happy to report that sweet Harley is home resting comfortably. The bladder catheterization went well, no blockage and no infections. We are hoping July will be a better month for our little buddy. Several years ago he was diagnosed with Irritable Bowel, which complicates just about everything. It was under contorl until early June when he had to be on antibiotics for infected teeth. Then had 3 teeth extracted, more antibiotics after the extraction all of which just totally mess up his system. Not to mention the numberous trips to the vet during June making June a very stressful month. IB and stress make for a very unhappy kitty. We love you to bits Harley!!!

  3. Poor Harley, we are sending bestest basset vibes.
    Madi you certainly have many admirers! Quite the tragic heroine pic there with you posing beneath the sailboat!
    It reminded us of the heroine who sat in her wedding dress forever!
    Trying to think who it was - bound to be Dickens!
    love

  6. Oh Madi! I did fear for my life there for a minute! Captain Ripley sounds like a character you don't want to mess around with....I am relieved that it has all been resolved!
    I am so happy Harley is doing better.
    I hope you and your family have a safe and happy 4th, my FRIEND!
    BTW, I love the wall hanging....did your mommy make it?

  8. Madi,

    Remington is such a gentleman to realize he could never come between you and the landlocked Collie-rado Pirate Cat Cap'n Ripley. What adventures you will have!

    Woofs and Licks,
    Maggie Mae

    PeeS I am doing the wiggle-butt happy dance for Harley!

  15. Well, I guess if Mayzie could be Scarlett O'Brindle (2 dates for Twix's date night, no less) there's nothing in the world with Madi being Scarlett O'Kitty. Just watch out for the Tomcats named Rhett, Madi.

  16. Wow, Madi. You caught me off guard and distracted and for a minute I thought you were talking about Frankie Flirter! Phew. Because we know he's spoken for.
    As for your sweet comment yesterday on everyone looking happy and healthy, tell that to my mom. Mrs Farrah is an unpredictable feral terror.

    Hopefully all the Gents won't go to war for the Diva's attention. She has enough beauty for them all to bask upon.
