Unfortunately I am allergic to cats.
But, I am more "allergic" to rats!
I like dogs
, and have no allergies to them, and I hear they can swim, and even have a swim stroke named after them.
So a wee little Rat Terrier (a very good small dog breed) would be my shipmate, and also be an early warning to pirates.
One rat terrier holds the record
of killing 2,500 rats in seven hours! True story!
He could always take the dog watch too!
I would just have to make sure he knew his proper place on the poop deck
I think I would name him Popeye.
