Well as some of you know, after sailing accross the pond from the UK to the chessapeak I have spent a couple of month out in the sticks at a friends place in PA and am going back to my voat next weekend. Now here is the problem. three days ago this little gray kitten turned up out of nowhere and soft fart that I can be at times, I fed the little thing. I can't let it into the house here because the dog would probably jst eat it amd the resident cat outside does not like the little one either. So I made a little corner for it with a couple of rags it ca sleep on in the garage. A bowl for water and one for food to complete the deal. Thing is, that as soon as I go outside it follows me everywhere. I went for a wander in the woods yesterday to have a look where the deer are as Bow season is open now in PA and the kitten followed me. Well after a mile or so it gor tired and started to cry. Now for deer hunting, having a crying kitten at your heels is about as usefull as taking an acordeon along, so I carried it back to the house and called it a day. The thing is, when I go back to my boat, should I take the little thing with me or not? If I did, would that be the end of my single handung days, as would have a little four legged crew member. To those of you that have cats or a cat on board, whats the deal when sailing in the crribbean as far as checking in and out of places goes. I have room for a litter box on board, but would i have to knit a net to put all round the boat so i don't loose the crew in a blow or just keep it below deck? I am a dog person so not had much to do with cats but this little fellow has got me thinking.
Come on folks give this old beardy a heads up on cats on board and help me make up my mind.
