On 7/22/06, the Terrific Tabbies set sail aboard the SS U.R.A. TABBY for warm tropical waters. The ship was in the capable paws of Captain Oliver, First Mate, Miss Muppet, and Jr. Captain, Alice. We had smooth seas for the entire journey. This was an all day event so we had plenty of time for games, relaxing, dolphin riding, lounging, napping, and of course, EATING. In the evening we held our formal dinner-dance. All the tabbies in attendance were dressed to kill. Formal gowns and tuxedos were the garments of choice. The Tabby Girls looked like fine jewels in dresses of silk, satin, chiffon, taffeta, colors of blue, red, black, yellow, green, in short, all the colors of the rainbow and more. The Tabby Boys were movie star handsome in tuxedos that fit them like gloves. We dined on the finest cuisines, prepared onboard by our excellent chef (Oliver had to step in and help in the kitchen since we had sailed without our sous chef) but all went smoothly and we were stuffed by the end of the meal. Then it was on to the dance - mostly slow songs since we'd played so hard and eaten so much. We could dance on deck under the full moon which proved to be very romantic.
These pictures are a small rememberance of that special day when the Terrific Tabbies had the times of their 9 lives.
Purrrrrrs, Capt. Oliver
