What is the most amount of pets you have on board? If we make it off land I could not bare to part with our cats. All 3 of them.

I met a couple planning to move aboard with two dogs, three cats, several birds, a reptile, and a pot-belly pig.

I think they are on CF.

If you broaden your definition of "pet", you will be carrying around LOTS of them.

Sometimes redefining is so much easier than hunting down and killing...

There was a couple in our marina that were preparing to leave on a 45 footer with six cats...so it can be done.

If our house ever sells, our two little salty felines will be coming with us.

Anything can be done I liked our two cats when we had them though, but hated the litter box. I can't imagine that in a 45 footer. Heck, I can't imagine 6 in my house which is much bigger!!

We're without a dog right now as our passed in december, but we anticipate getting another and he'd come with us for sure as we intend to cruise within 5 years.

another option is to go to a vet inmazatlan or other place on way back and have p pet critter examined to avoid quarantine, as well. friends of mine do this with their boat kat.

Do you have any friends or family that are open to adoption? This way they do not end up in an animal shelter and you can visit them when you come back. I can see having one cat on a boat but above that seems like a lot of work. There could also be questions when trying to clear customs depending on the country.

We had 3 cats when it was time to move aboard. We chose one and the other two were adopted by family.

Wait we can't just hide them in the bilge?

I'm assuming dogs and cats on a boat can't be taken ashore in foreign countries, so if that's the case clearing customs shouldn't be a problem. I am wondering how animals do spending all their time on a boat without ever getting to touch land?
