Some of you were wondering how the cats are doing on our journey.The first couple of days were a little rough for them, but we are quite happy to say they have adapted well to the boat. We have NO personal space. Pudgy and Grace have taken over everything. In the picture below, you can see Grace lounging on the shelf Bruce has just finished installing.
So what do they do on a small boat with maybe 150 square feet of living space? While we are moving they mostly sleep. Pudgy generally prefers the bed, while Grace sits on a shelf or wedges herself into the tiniest of places.
In the evenings they like to come out into our enclosed cockpit, especially after dark. They do a lot of sniffing and pay attention to every sound. A few times we have had Asian carp thump the side of the boat, which really gets their attention!
Boating life has definitely not impacted their appetites. We are going through cat food – and cat litter! – at a brisk pace.
All in all we are quite happy with how they are doing.
