Does anyone have experience with training a kitten to, you know, not drown itself? Any other boat cat-related advice is also welcome!
I have had a cat on a 45-ft/glander and it did get in a windy storm and fell about 3oa.m I predict. I had it on board for about 6 months during the winter in a slip. Great cat (brandy). We never found her when we looked for her on shore. Got a new cat and then we broke up shortly after. We named her sailor. Hope she is doing well. Sure she is. My advise would be to get a cat who is very laid back. Adopting at a shelter also helps your community and the cat. Just keep an eye on it and you will be fine. Cat's are great compainon's on a boat. I know I miss mine.
