By flipped him in the drink I mean I carried him over to the rail and dropped him carefully in the water. I really was rooting for the little bugger and was rather saddened when I saw him turn around and go the wrong way.

And speaking of critters, a family of sea otters were playing on the dock next to my boat this morning. I feel bad for them; they also are delightful and yet they eat those dioxin laced crabs. Sometimes civilization really sucks. To hell with poo.
Amazing cat! I didn't know cats allowed animal protection principles override their hunting instincts...

I see you guys in general are pretty relaxed about these kind of "guests" aboard. I always heard of rats as a big danger on a boat (more in the line with the story mentioned by SloopTattoo).

Geez - saw "critters" and got all excited - I was hoping for Bulldogs again, or at least Beagles....

Oh yeah! When we had cats and lived out in the country they would often bring home some "gift", often alive. To this day when my sister and I bring a "hostess gift" to each other when visiting we call it a "mouse". Fortunately it's usually a bottle of wine rather than a live mouse, lizard or snake

There are a lot of rats in Victoria (lots of waterfront), and a friend of ours has a real mouser. Two nights ago, the cat brought rat into Aly's bedroom and proceeded to eat it on her bed (she has brought in rats before). Aly is terrified of rats so she just huddled under her blankets and listened to the gnawing and snap of bones in the dark. The next morning she had to open her eyes eventually, and found the head and tail left.
