Cap’n Ripley Speaks (And does anybuddy wanna drive?)

Hiya everybuddy! I hopes you had a Most Luvly Wednesday! Some of you asked where we tooks that picture that we had up for Wordless Wednesday. That was on the trail near by our house where we gets to walk every single day. Pretty nifty, huh? We’ll show you some more pictures of that one of these days, I promise.

Okay, now, as you may know, my kitteh brudder Cap’n Ripley is very much besotted by that Most Sweet and Beautiful Southern Belle, Madi.

I'm too sexy for this chair.

Very much sadly, dear Miss Madi lives way far away from Collie-rado so they have to settles for online dating only. But Cap’n Ripley thoughts that Madi should hears from his own lips (um, do kittehs have lips? I’m not sure.) how he feels abouts her. (Cap’n Ripley is a little hard to understand so we added subtitles for those of you who might not speak Pirate Cat.)

Well, I don’t thinks it turned out exactly like Cap’n Ripley woulda liked it to but I still think he’s a real cutie patootie, don’t you? (But don’t tell him I said that, ‘kay?)


Okay, now on a totally and completely different subject, we gots an email from the rescue where Brudder Ranger came from – Ratbone Rescues. They’re trying to puts together a transport to gets a momma doggie named Bluebelle and her eight – EIGHT – puppies to their foster home.

They’re going all the way from Oak-luh-home-ah to New York! This is the 4th time they’ve tried to get them there and they’re SO close this time. But they still have a few parts they need help with. So please do me a big ol’ favor and if you can help gets little Zari and the rest of her family where they need to go, please sends an email to: ratbonerescues AT yahoo DOT com. Tell her Mayzie sent you!

Can you helps me get to my foster home?

This Ratbone Rescues transport is scheduled for July 24 & 25, 2010. Okay to crosspost. (Note from Mayzie: I puts the parts where they still needs drivers in red.)

  1. Bluebelle and her pups are just too cute! Our paws are crossed that they get to their destination!
    Cap’n Ripley is kinda cute for a kitteh!

    Love ya lots
    Maggie and Mitch

  2. Oooh, I’m sure Madi is going to love this! Pirates are probably a little stuck for words when the situation doesn’t call for “Aargh” and such, but he did a nice job anyway.

    I hope you get rides for the pups. They are most adorable and if they have to go all that way to find new homes I sure hope they’re able to get there.

    lotsa licks, Lola

    MADI YOUR SOUTHERN BELLE. PS Who knew online dating could be so rewarding?

    Dear Mom to Cap’n from Mom of Madi. Oh my cats I’m have laughed my fool head off this morning. THANK YOU. Tell the Cap’n

    We hope the sweet puppies and their Mom make it to their forever home.
    Mayzie, Ranger give mom a great big hug for participating in this journey.
    Madi and Mom

  4. PS I don’t know what I was going to ask you to ‘tell Cap’n’ my typist is still mopping up her eyes from LOLing

  5. Mayzie,

    That was a wonderful video for sure! It sounds like Madi really liked it too. 🙂 Mom said she would have LUVED to have been a part of that transport, we practically live in Albany and she could have done the last leg for sure, BUT she is happy to see that someone else is doing it. 🙂 Maybe another time we could helps out.

    Woofs and Licks,
    Maggie Mae

  6. We would so sign our mom up for the transport but think she’d end up stealing all those cute babies! Good thing we live on the west coast!

    Let your brudder, Capt’n Ripley know that there’s nothing to be embarrassed about… it’s always hard speaking with a girl you like… especially one so HOT!

    Sam and Pippen

    PeeS. have you checked out what some of us boys are doing to help alleviate Frankie’s fears about the bachelorette pawty?

  7. Cap’n Ripley is adorable. He is one big boy. His love video is hilarious.
    Wish we could help with the transport. Hope those legs can get filled.
    Love Ruby & Penny
    Pees – Do dogs have lips?

  8. Oh CapnRipley, that video is wonderful. LOL. And we sure don’t blame you for wanting to court Madi. She is just gorgeous. All the guys here are going nuts. They just met her this morning.
    And a huge Thank you to all the people that are helping that Momma dog and puppies get to New York. We will be saying lots of prayers that they find enough people for the trip. Good luck.

  9. Wow, I can’t believe the coordination needed in the transport. I really hope they find a way to get where they need to go. Love the video!

  10. Very cool: A cross-country bucket, er, Bluebelle brigade! Good luck!

  11. Wow, that is quite the journey! Go figure that the part that is near me is filled (mom and I would of had serious discussion about how I feel about RT hairs in my car, but I know it’s for a good cause so would have given in!).

    As far as Mr. Ripley…. A little stage fright perhaps? I bet if he laid real still on that floor his furs would be perfect camouflage and you wouldn’t even see him!

    Brutus & Carmen

  12. love it!!!!!!

    El’bow & Hauwii

  13. Kit

    Adorable video…Madi and her mom are good freinds of ours…
    Nosetaps to you kittehs and belly rubs to Mayzie,
    Zack, Sassy and Buddy

  14. Oh I so glads to be home and I missed you so much.
    Ummmm, I hopes ya’ll is aware dat Madi’s head is going to explode from dis video…you know how peoples gets big heads, yea well dat gonns be Madi…hehehehehe! Hers gonna be talkin bout dis furevers and evers.
    I wished I lived in dat area to help but we don’t . I hopes somebuddy can helps them poor puppies.


  15. Khats are always SOOOOOOO dramatikh!

    Paws khrossed the transport gets filled fur those khuties!


  16. I love that video, SO funny! Just make sure I’m in focus, haha!

  17. Dear Cap’n Riley

    We don’t like interfering or anything, but after watching your video we thought we had better check out your chances with Madi the Diva Cat.

    Gotta say you is too bashful, so we upped the anti and asked her outright ’bout your chances. Just rember – long distance lurve is sometimes fraught and desperate. That said, we thinks your chances is good.


  18. Oh we just loved that video – Cap’n Ripley is very much the cutie. You did a great job with the interpretation of his words.

    Wish we could help Bluebelle and her babies. We hope things all fall into place.

    Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

  19. awww, even dread pirates captains like ripley can fall in love! ❤
    i sure hope miss bluebelle and her puppies can find those last few drivers they need to make it to new york. if they were drivin' anywhere near us, mama would so help!
    the booker man

  20. Oh, Cap’n Ripley, I apologize for laughing, but you had me going from “SILENCE!” I hope Madi enjoyed your message!

    Best of luck to that mama and puppies travelling by! The leg nearest us is already full. That’s probably for the best, since I’m not sure Mom could resist putting a puppy in her purse!


  21. Mayzie
    Pleez tell Cap’nWipley not to be embawwased..telling youw giwlfwiend nice things is a sign of being a big mancat(he’s vewy handsome btw) thank you fow the twanslation cause i don’t speak at flooently.

    I suwe hope you get all the twanspawts fow pwetty Bluebell and hew pups..I wish we had a caw..I would help
    smoochie kisses

  22. Ok.. the moment where Ripley jumps up to make sure he’s in focus was just about the funniest thing I’ve ever seen. Very good thing I wasn’t drinking anything or I would have spit it out all over my screen! LOL

  23. I love the video!
    Ripley is adorable!
    He gave us a good laugh!
    I hope everything goes well to complete the transport!
    Kisses and hugs

  24. Mayzie! I usually aren’t too fond of kitties, well, I chase them, but that Cap’n Ripley is just too cute!

    Thank you for helping with the rescue. Nobody coming to Canada???

    Love nibbles,
    Miss Sunshade

  25. I wish we were close enough to help with the transport of those adorable puppies.

  26. You get to walk that every day? How cool! I hope the pups makes it safe to his new home!

    Don’t forget, we are changing our blog today. Please update your reader to follow

  27. Mango

    That sure is a complex route for transporting those little pups. Goodness. Too bad I don’t have my license. Yuh.

    As for Cap’n Ripley, better work on your technique. I don’t think that shy stuttering stuff works well with the gals. Try this;

    Abandon all hope, wench, I be boarding your ship. ARG.
