Their boat was stuck in a sandbar and Pembleton felt like something fishy was going on because every attempt to radio for help was being jammed. The only thing they could do is take their life raft to the nearby island and search for help.

Once Ducky, Pembleton, Ted, and Blizzard made it to shore, they decided to explore the island. But Ducky insisted that they all stick together and Pembleton reminded them to walk quietly.

It didn’t take long for them to discover what was going on. Ducky and Pembleton heard rough voices through the dense jungle foliage. They carefully peeked through the bushes only to find CAT PIRATES!

“That explains it”, said Pembleton. “The pirates must be jamming our radio and they probably put that sandbar near the island to trap boats like ours.”

Ducky said, “Why does it have to be CATS? I hate CATS!”

“Except for kittens”, Ted reminded him.

As they listened to the cat pirates, they found out that their leader, Captain One Mitten, was aware of their boat. He had sent his first mate to check on the boat, but he returned saying that no one was on the ship and there was no treasure – only a few sandwiches. Both pirates agreed that they were hungry and went down to the boat to eat Ducky, Pembleton, and the little guys’ sandwiches.

Meanwhile, Ducky said, “Now’s our chance to find out what they are doing here.” Pembleton added, “Maybe we can disable their radio jammer.”

"Arrr... what kinda sandwiches, thee be?" -Captain One Mitten exclaimed.

Pembleton belongs to an amateur ham radio club with animals from around the world. Every year their ham radio club puts on a Christmas production. Unlike usual Christmas parties, the ham radio club performs a play over radio. All of the animals in the club are assigned characters and each animal reads their lines into a microphone that sends their voice to all the other members of the club.

Ducky, Ted, and Blizzard gathered in Pembleton’s study to listen to the story unfold. This year’s play, written by Pembleton, was a mystery revolving around missing Christmas presents stolen from an orphanage. The hero of the story was Detective Lionhart played by Lionhart the Tortoise, while Pembleton played the villain, Baron von Despicable. At the end of the play Ducky, Ted, and Blizzard cheered when Detective Lionhart caught the Baron and delivered the stolen presents to the orphanage just in time for Christmas morning.
