Sorry to be negative but your biggest issue is going to be your cat. I don't know anybody that will be amenable to someone else's pet on board. And I know how hard it is to leave a loved pet behind. We have an Abyssinian who will go sailing with us when we go, no matter how much trouble he's going to be.
But I wouldn't accommodate someone else's animal.
