Cats on Board
thanks for re-posting that thread!!! We plan to take our cat (a siamese) on our big trip when we''re done with the refit. She''s been out a few times. Basically she''s so attached to us I think it would be WAY more traumatic to let someone else take care of her than to let her move aboard with us. She adapted to living in a VW van 13 years ago as a kitten, hopefully she''ll be cool with the boat.
I think it is VERY interesting how may people taking cats sailing have Siamese or part-Siamese!!!!!! What''s up with that? Is it because people who are aesthetically drawn to sailboats (long, lean, elegant) are also drawn to a Siamese''s similar look? Or is it because Siamese are so adventuresome and smart so people who own them actually consider taking them sailing while most people with other cats don''t? What is it? There''s also a series of kid''s books about a Siamese who goes sailing with his "family".... and there''s the Pink Floyd song with "Lucifer Sam, Siam Cat, Lucifer Sam, Ship''s Cat...." (our late Lynxpoint, Lucy, was named after that song!!
Interesting, though, don''t you think?
