Buying my first boat for liveaboard (Hunter 33 Cherubini 1978)

I am thinking of placing an offer on a 1978 Hunter 33 Cherubini. I had spoken before in the forums asking about other boats..that were much costlier and better suited for liveaboards but I found a small affordable boat I would be very happy with.

-Is it reasonable to expect to live aboard a Hunter.. I know its not a bluewater boat nor that large but the previous owner was a cabinet maker and the interior is just packed with teak cupboards which I am thrilled about.

-I am thinking it might take some creativity is finding a place for my cats litter box. Am I okay leaving my cat alone in my boat while I am away at work. Can I leave electric heating on in the boat for her during the winter or is that unsafe?

-How much could I expect in trailering fees to get this boat to my Marina.. it is roughly 300km (186miles) away.

Just some of my many questions running through my head before I speak with the finance guys tomorrow and go through with an offer.

Your thoughts would be appreciated.
