Re: Cats on Board

This may seem like a bit of a crazy question, and please do bear in mind it is just a question...

Has anybody ever installed a cat flap on board?

The reason I ask is that during the summer months I will be spending months at a time with my boat moored on along the river bank in a place where it would be perfectly safe for my cat to come and go as she pleased.

I am wondering about the possibility of using a cat flap to allow my moggy to come and go as she pleases when in a suitable spot for an extended length of time.

Has anybody done this?

I was thinking of possibly converting a porthole or window rather than companionway (for security) and maybe even take one of these to pieces to utilise the tech inside it.

Re: Cats on Board

Awww, how is your kitty now?
Bite on his neck ok now?

My little kitty now has her chip and passport all ready for adventures!
Just hope she is ok on the water....

We'll have to wait and see!

Re: Cats on Board

bubba is good--i think i will have dunia place a chip in him--she is a good vet, and he has met her--didnt hiss or spit, either--so she must be ok.
he got over the bite and stays indoors more than he used to--but i have a/c on so that doesnt count--he likes that relief from humidity.

Re: Cats on Board

Our cat probably enjoys the boat more than we do. Here is a pic of her navigating during our sail last night.
