Cats onboard

My husband and I have always had animals. Now, that we're retired people, we don't. But I'm beginning to think an animal would be nice. I'd like a little puppy but my husband thinks a cat would be easier on board. We generally live aboard our boat all summer. Pros? Cons? We met cruisers once with a lovely dog that they had trained to use a square of green astro-turf on the bow. Then they simply dumped it overboard and cleaned it. (Apparently the laws on holding tanks don't apply to animals.)

My husband and I thought that was slicker than having to get up at all hours and row the dog to shore.

I can see that a cat with a well-secured for heel litter box would be good. But I have heard that it's a rare cat that doesn't get sea sick.

Any suggestions?
