Good advice. I remember seeing a thread here where folks had a couple of things they did; hanging something that a cat can climb easily over the side was the main theme.

In my experience once a cat does something that leads to embarrassment. discomfort, hunger or pain it is a while before they do anything like it again.

I am very happy Bella is home. I cringed reading your initial post because I think we all have been there. The not knowing is indeed the worst. I think atoll has given great advice above for anyone with cats on board.

Re: Lost my Buddy

I am so sorry to hear that you lost Bella and don't blame you for feeling hurt and angry. Pets aboard like children.
My soul is full of longing for the secret of the sea,
and the heart of the great ocean sends a thrilling pulse through me.

Re: Lost my Buddy

Our cat developed a brain tumour. Having him euthanased was the hardest decision we ever made. Feel for you.
