Cats in Tall Ships and Cattery Guests

Many boats have a  feline crew-member  that keeps mice away and also helps cheer up the rest of the crew. This story is about them.

A great week at the cattery with Thor and Athena being impossibly cute, Bella looking forward to going home, Bernard enjoying his cattery patrols, Charlie being super affectionate and senior cat Lucy getting to be a favourite cat. Mandy is back for a great holiday and having her meds and eating well, Meesha is putting up with the cattery,  Nelson is busy inspecting everything and Persia arrived today and she says she’s never been here before, and that her life is ruined 4EVA. Puss another one of our senior cats, is a longtime guest and she continues to delight us, Rambo is very happy to receive  weekly visits from mum, what a lucky boy! Ruby couldn’t be more beautiful and well behaved, Trevor is a star and a charmer and little Zac is surprising everybody with his good behaviour.
