There was a three-legged cat called Bertie
Who awoke every morning at five thirty
To eat a bowl of food
So as not to be rude
He groomed himself 'cause he was quite dirty.



Very Ogden Nash!

A three legged cat with a black eye patch? Is he your companion on the high seas, Admiral, in place of the more commonplace/trad parrot? How very fitting.

That's not a black eye patch! The Admiral, being the soul of discretion is merely respecting Bertie's privacy and saving him from unwanted celebrity (or somesuch)-worship!

I'm glad you're in a good mood. :)

As Ben Franklin said,in another context we know, "All cats are gray in the dark!
