I have had a cat on a 45-ft/glander and it did get in a windy storm and fell about 3oa.m I predict. I had it on board for about 6 months during the winter in a slip. Great cat (brandy). We never found her when we looked for her on shore. Got a new cat and then we broke up shortly after. We named her sailor. Hope she is doing well. Sure she is. My advise would be to get a cat who is very laid back. Adopting at a shelter also helps your community and the cat. Just keep an eye on it and you will be fine. Cat's are great compainon's on a boat. I know I miss mine.

Re: Boat Cat?

I have had a cat ("brandy" your a fine girl) you know the song, on a glander sailboat for about 7 months. Winds came and we predict she fell over. Never found her on land. Went to the shelter, bought a new kitten, and we broke up. I hope little sailor is doing well now. My advice would be to get a laid back cat and keep an eye on it. Go to a local shelter. It's good for you and the cat. They make great campanion's on a boat.

Good Luck
