Lots of boaters around us have dogs- Jack Russells seem to be the saveur de jour. But no cats.
We had a cat when we got our boat, kept her in for a month but she kept pestering to be let out. So we did, she went out, had a sniff around came back. Went out again, bit further away, came back. Went out again, that was the last we saw of her. She had a tracker on too but it was only short range
Would love to get another cat but not sure how to go about it
Missus would like a dog but I find 'em a bit dirty and smelly (and I don't like Jack Russells!)
Tl;dr, sorry to hijack your thread, it's great, living on a boat. You learn so much about all sorts of weird stuff
