Home floating home!

Oh my cat! OH MY CAT! I’m soo excited! I can barely stop leaping around the place long enough to tell you all my news! I’m going to explode! I’m so happy I could frazzle a whisker!

Furiends as you know the humans have been whispering in dark corners and hiding something impawtant from me for AGES. (Long before the festive holidays I knew they were up to something.) I’ve been pestering them to tell me and I even tried snooping around to find evidence of their secretive plans, with no luck. The mystery is finally over though and it was definitely worth the wait!

I’m going to be living aboard Nocturne…FULL-TIME!

20140123-173331.jpg

Isn’t that just the best news? Mum applied for a sabbatical months ago and the contract was finally signed this morning. We’re off to join dad on my beautiful boat! No more commuting and no more land-lubbing in a flat. The three of us are going to be living all together on my darling Nocturne… It’s going to be pawesome!

Dad will still be working, so unfortunately we won’t be full-time cruising just yet, but we’ll definitely be able to sail ALOT more. Adjusting to the three of us living aboard is going to be an adventure in itself for the meantime anyway. Mum will spend her time writing and teaching English, while I oversee and manage my humans to the best of my ability. I’m sure I’m going to need to paw out some general rules to keep everything sailing along smoothly.

The sabbatical starts on the 1st of April (Don’t worry I’ve already checked it’s not an April Fool!) so the big move will be taking place at the end of March! We’re going to be very busy bees for the next couple of weeks getting ready but it’s all going to be very exciting!

  2. Brofur…you are the luckiest cat on the planet. You have gotten what you wished for! Yippee…hooray…wowzers! We do have one question? Do you get to take you turtles with you? We know quarters will be cramped! Just think, our very own brofur will be a full-time boat cat. April 1 will be here before you know it with all the work and packing you will need to do to get ready. CONCATULATIONS! Love, purrs and paw-pats your sisfurs and brofur, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

    You lucky, lucky, boy! I can understand your excitement, it’s lovely living on a boat. Do be careful if you’re living in a marina though, don’t go off exploring, you could get lost!
    Wishing you a wonderful time, bisous XXX

  12. Oh Bailey I had hoped that’s what your Mom and Dad were whispering about for so long! They had to wait for the right moment to tell you but what a GREAT surprise. Even if you’re not at sail ALL THE TIME, you’ll be doing more of it because you’ll all be together in your favorite spot on earth – Nocturne! WOO HOO!

    Hugs, Sammy
