Dear furiends last night when the humans were out giving April a last chance to relieve herself before bed, they got involved with a rescue. They saw a cat struggling in the water! The cat was successfully pulled out and we cared for him overnight. I’m so happy that the story has a happy ending because today Gery was reunited with his humans, it turns out he’s French like I am!
Tell us a little bit about yourself.
Well my name’s Gery and I’m three and a half years old. I live on a boat half the year and in a house in France the other half of the year.
How did you come to be swimming last night?
Well there were storms and high winds and I guess I just got spooked and misjudged a jump. To be honest I’m not really sure what happened before I hit the water.
You had the humans worried when they couldn’t see you, what did you do?
I tried to swim to safety but I went under the pontoon. I was really afraid and I ended up hanging off the back of a boat when I was rescued.
Did you enjoy your stay aboard Nocturne?
Yes thank you. It was very kind of you, April and the humans to let me stay the night. Your humans gave me a little shower with the fresh water hose on the pontoon and then waited to see if I would run home, but I was so scared that I stayed glued to your mum. Your humans are really nice, they weren’t sure which boat I came from because my collar doesn’t say, so they said I could stay in your bathroom. It was so kind of you to give me some of your food Bailey and loan me your travel litter box. I was very comfortable.
My humans left notes on all of the unfamiliar boats asking if they’d lost you. You’ve made quite a splash here on our pontoon!
Well I’m usually quite shy, but it was nice to have so much attention this morning. I felt a little bit silly but very loved.
If somebody asked you for advice and you only had a few minutes to give them your best tip, what would it be?
Try and keep your paws dry. Definitely don’t go swimming in the middle of the night!
Do you have a website or social media channel where we can follow your future adventures?
No, not at the moment but I’m so happy to have met you, April and your humans. Thank you again Bailey. I’m going to enjoy lots of treats and love on my boat now!
You’re very welcome Gery I’m so happy we could help you and that we got you home safely this morning. It was a purrleasure to have you, I’ve never had a sleepover on Nocturne before, it was fun!
Happy Caturday furiends!
