Re: Cats on Board

I don't think that many cats have directed people to take them cruising, but some have, it's probably because of the whole not liking water thing.

I am sure the cat would demand freshly caught seafood, at the very least, and I think that is the only reason that any cats have gone to sea.

Re: Cats on Board

Will my kitty was a little hesitant at first but now seems to have adjust to the idea that boat is home now.



Have been moored in the same place and kitty coming and going as she pleases, the real test will be how she fares when I move the boat to a different spot on the river tomorrow...

Any advice?

Re: Cats on Board

have you run the engine with her on board--you may wish to consider making sure she is cool with engine n oise then go....if she stays in deepest part of boat, place a towel under her. if she hides youmay wish to know where--i keep mine leashed. err, tethered during these practices, as he likes to go deep into darkest places to hide from noisey beast ... i can find him by following leash, err, tether...even when not affixed at bitter end----he tows his line around everywhere on boat...when outside i belay his line so he cannot disembark.

Re: Cats on Board

Dangerous feline parasite at shocking levels in humans


Cats are cute but you could be picking up a parasite from them.

A parasite spread by cats is infecting 1000 new people every day in Britain - about 750,000 a year - according to an official assessment of the risks posed by toxoplasma, which can cause serious illness and has been tentatively linked with schizophrenia and other psychotic disturbances.

My Lucy seams to like it when the engine is running. She come out of her spot and lays on the engine cover. She does not like the sound of the winch. And as she is now turning 16 she tends to like to sleep or when under sail, she is in her taxi. I secure her taxi in the v birth, but there have been occasions the cat and taxi have gone flying. Once when exiting the Cap Cod Canal with 8' chop, 4' apart, bow up 10' then down underwater, she came out from the v birth after and bitch me out good. But she loves to sail.

Lucy is the black tuxedo cat, Ethel passed on a few years ago.

Re: Cats on Board

Does anyone have ideas on how to deal with a cat that gets seasick? Our cat does OK when things are benign, but when the seas and wind kick up, so does he. He starts by drooling, and then moves on to vomit, and bowel/bladder evacuations. Not fun, for him or for us.

I think it is, in part, a fear response, but he has always been prone to motion sickness. We've tried giving him gravol and other drugs, but we have to force it down him, and this tends to scare him -- leading to a bad outcome. Besides, I hate to have him drugged.

He does get better the longer he's on the boat. I have hopes that once we move on full-time he'll fully adjust (we tend to go out for 4 to 6 weeks at a time now).

Any suggestions of things I could try?
