“Growltiger was a Bravo Cat, who lived upon a barge;
In fact he was the roughest cat that ever roamed at large.
From Graves-end up to Oxford he pursued his evil aims,
Rejoicing in his title of "The Terror of the Thames."
Woe to the weak canary, that fluttered from its cage;
Woe to the pampered Pekinese, that faced Growltiger's rage.
Woe to the bristly Bandicoot, that lurks on foreign ships,
And woe to any Cat with whom Growltiger came to grips! “
My favorite poet, of all time, has to be TS Eliot. Though he strove for the perfect impersonal poems, those that could be understood and enjoyed by everyone, he fell flat with many works, such as the Wasteland that were actually more complex then many literary works at the time. However, Old Possum, as his wife called him, struck gold with Practical Cats- which was later made into a play, CATS by famed composer Andrew Loyd Weber Growltiger is a pirate who eventually meets his end in a battle with a group of Siamese pirate cats. His mate, Griddlebone, managed to escape with her life, and his dramatic deeds live through her! He worked for the mastermind McCavity when in English waters, and was known as the most frightening pirate on the high seas.
He is up-cycled from a pair of socks, and stuffed with fiberfill. His eye-patch is removable, and composed of some stash fabric. He's a cuddly little pirate- no need for swords, Growltiger uses his claws and teeth, not human crutch weaponry. He's just waiting for a pirate mate to take him home so he can begin his new life of adventures!
