We also have our cats on board:
The first one is named "Kwats", she's 6 years old (almost 7). And she's been sailing on this ship all her life. And she's very relaxed about the whole thing as you can see on this photo
The second cat, "Ukkie" also sailed with us, but sadly she passed away last year. Not due to sailing, but to kidney problems, even though she was only 2 years old.
Our third cat, named "Snowy" was adopted by us in january 2010, we were on a skiing trip, and the poor creature, only a couple of months old was abandoned near our hotel
. So we took her home.
She's now becoming a real sailing cat, she likes it very much!
Here she is at the tiller:
And like kwats, she also likes to relax:
We keep the litterbox in the back berth, which isn't used by us, or any visitors. We clean it every day, and keep the litterbags in another sealed bag, which is stowed away in one of the outside storage
This works really well.. The only downside is, that the litter we use, is very fine grained. So this sticks under their paws, and gets carried around through the cabin
So every day, we clean everything with the vacuum. But isn't there a more efficient way? Or are there other litter brands out there which don't stick, and remain inside the litterbox?
Any good advise on this? Kwats is a bit messy, she tends to kick the litter out of the box, even though it has a door..
