Re: Boat Cat?

Kittens usually adapt well. A litter tray at the downwind end of the boat is best, not a problem at anchor. I used beach sand.

I have had three all of which came aboard as 7-8 week old kittens, they fell in and either swam calling loudly till picked out or climbed back onboard themselves. I had scraps of netting over the side of the big boat and over one dinghy sponson.

We had to add an extra line to our tacking commands though.
