I used to keep a kitty door in one of my portlights open at all times. Now, when I go away from the boat at anchor, kitty gets locked below. It's never hot enough here to worry about cooking kitty, but if you're worried about that, just keep the center hatch open. Heat rises and it'll never get too hot.
The bigger problems than sinking are them falling overboard. My cat used to go overboard about once a year or so at the slip. Even with a towel hung over the side into the water (which I have done) I'm not sure she'd find it and get back on. If the dog goes over, he can't get back on, period.
The other problem for kitty or a very small dog is bald eagles. Where I live they take people's cats pretty frequently during hatchling season.
I have a sauna on my boat, therefore I win.
