Captain Purrgwash

I wouldn’t dare to insult Captain Purrgwash by describing him as a very salty seadog, but he is definitely a piratical rapscallion. He has spent most of his time on the high seas and says he’ll be extremely happy to recount in great detail his many adventures – whether you choose to believe all his exploits is, however, another issue all together.
He has moored his tall ship, The Golden Pussy, at the Ashcourt docks for the last time and handed his profession on to his son, Moggy Rogers. Purrgwash says he is now far too old to deal with cut-throat marauders, sirens, currency and gemstone conversion, rations, and time-zone disruption. He is looking to retire to a good family who like to eat well and know a good sea-shanty or two. (Warning – he has an awful singing voice, a true caterwaul!) This Pirate Captain truly is one-of-a-kind.
Handmade stuffed and jointed doll, with moveable arms and legs. Cotton pirate themed material. Felt and gold embroidered eye patch. Cotton scarf with real pearl and coral braid. Felt waistcoat with gold embroidery trim and pocket stuffed with pirate treasure map (can be unrolled but no guarantees on finding the treasure!) and metal skull and cross bones charm on back. Purrgwash carries a vial of his favourite catnip stash around his neck.
