For Cat Over Board. Carry a large salmon net... That net that you use to net the large fish (instead of a gaff) or the frantically swimming cat and swing the wet fur ball aboard and give it a fresh water rinse. Wise to keep in the net until you are finished rinsing the poor kitty.
When at anchor; hang thick lines over both sides for the cat to climb quickly out of the water.
The scratching posts. Below deck you can wrap a lower part of the keel step mast in natural fiber line or make fancy mats from that type of line.
Above deck you will find places that you can add the natural fiber line and wrap it tightly for a scratching post.
I would never declaw a cat. It amounts to the same thing as taking off the first joints of your own fingers. So if you declaw your cat, I get to wack your finger tips off at the first joints.
