Door disaster!

Furiends during the storms the humans and I were safe but my poor beautiful teak door didn’t make it…Broken door

Whilst my dad was putting on his wet weather gear he lost his balance and crashed into it. I’m heartbroken, it’s such a beautiful feature in the boat and now it’s got a huge split in it!

Sad day for the door

It really does make you appreciate the force of the sea! Fortunately no humans were harmed… Just my beautiful door. The humans would’ve healed but my door won’t… Anyway I best not continue down that line in case they read this!

Sad split


I’ve been speaking to the lovely humans at Tayana and they have reassured me that we can sort something out. We may be able to just replace that panel, but if not they can ask their carpenters to make another door. It will be quite difficult to match the colour of the teak however since Noccy is a mature lady and the teak has faded a little over the years. I’m sure we will be able to sort something out though. Silly clumsy humans!

My good furiend Summer is holding a giveaway for my book, to enter just pop over to see her here.

Happy Caturday furiends!

Bisous, Bailey


  1. Oh no! It is such a beautiful door. Happy to hear that you will be able to work something out. Glad your humans weren’t harmed.


  2. That must have been bashed with force – amazing that the wood suffered more than the human! I’m sure I could invisible-mend that, but I suppose sailing to Durban for the repair would be a teensy bit extreme.


  3. Take care my friend Bailey Blue! Monty xx

    Dearest Brofur, That is a shame, but we are still happy that neither you nor your humans were injured. That same thing happened to Mom once with a cabinet our humans had custom made. A carpenter was able to fix it for them. Hope you have the same kind of good fortune in having this repaired. It is quite beautiful. Hope you will join us tomorrow for our Sunday Selfies Blog Hop. XO from your brofur and sisfurs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo


  5. Oh Bailey- I’m sorry! What a lovely door! At first I thought that was some excellent carving by your claws- so sorry you didn’t get the PURRleasure!

    Hope it can be fixed soon (then you can try again)! Hehehe…


  6. That’s really a shame Bailey – perhaps the people at Tayana can locate some “seasoned” teak so the color will be closer to what you have instead of brand new looking? As you say though at least your Dad is alright……that’s the important thing!

    Hugs, Sammy


  7. Really sad, Bailey. I hope the door can be repaired by a wood working expert.


  8. Oh no! Seeing that big split in that beautiful door makes me sad. I hope the Tayana humans can fix it.

    BTW, thanks for letting everyone know about my giveaway!


  9. Bailey, furniture specialists can work wonders these days! The door may be able to be repaired, although that could cost more than a new one!!

    Thank goodness your humans are safe, too. Pat


  10. Maybe they can make something lovely out of the pieces if they can’t repair it for you Bailey.
    Happy Caturday!


  11. Poor door. I’m happy your daddy didn’t fall all the way through. Otherwise the door would have his whole outline through it, like on the cartoons!

    Love and licks,


  12. That’s too bad. It was a beautiful door but thankfully it was there to keep your human from getting hurt.


  13. Oh dang Bailey 😦 at least the peeps and you are fine 🙂 hugs Fozziemum xx

    Oh Bailey, we’re sorry for your beautiful door ! Tell yourself it saved your human from being hurt… Purrs

    What would the humans do without you there to help them fix your beautiful Nocturne? What would the humans do without you there to help them survive in general?!


I'd love to hear what you think....
