About me

On watch

Ahoy there furiends!

My name is Bailey Blue! I’m a male seal point Siamese. I was born on the 9th of July 2011 in the South of France and was destined to become a boat cat. I’m a fearless feline who loves nothing better than a salty sea breeze ruffling through my fur. I enjoy panoramic horizons, inky sunsets, and starlit fishy feasts. I dislike dinghy devils (known to some humans as seagulls I believe) because they’re an annoying nuisance.

I live on my beloved boat in a port just outside the ancient city of Rome with two human members of crew. My human ‘mum’ is a cool Cornish lass and my human ‘dad’ is an awesome Irish Aussie. Together we have a shared dream to throw off the bow lines and go cruising. We don’t have a set route as such because we intend to be doing this for a long time so there’s no rush. We’d love to see more of the Med, do the Pacific circuit, the Northwest Passage looks like it would be a pawesome challenge and purrsonally I’d like to head to Alaska to see the bears! It would be nice to think that one day we might even do a circumnavigation but we’re happily going with the flow at the moment.

We’ve already made progress since we decided to go for it. To begin with mum and I were commuting between a flat in Nice France and the boat here in Rome Italy and now we’re all happily living aboard full-time. The projects that we’ve been working hard on have all been geared to getting the boat ready for cruising safely and comfortably. Once the cruising kitty and the boat are equally ready we’ll be setting off. Until then we’ll be purring along the Italian coast and islands.

I’m very happy you came aboard to say ‘Hi’ please feel free to stick around and enjoy the fun. You can also sign up to stay updated on all my adventures.

I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

Love and Bisous (French kisses)

Bailey

  17. Thanks for the follow Bailey – you are one cool kitty! I would love to take my cat Ollie out sailing with on our boat but when he and the Wildflower met he was a 10-year-old landlubber and too set in his ways. We both look forward to following your adventures though!

  18. T’es mignon, mon petit choux et tu le sais! J’ai un chat également. Il s’agit d’une dame rousse de type Ginger, qui s’appelle Sissi, comme l’impératrice, qui a maîtrisé ce logiciel et qui joue avec mon Macbook! Tu peux la voir sur mon blog:

  21. You are amazing Cat Bailey, and so adorable. I loved your photographs in boat and in sailing boat… Seems that you are really a sea person/cat 🙂 Blessing and happiness with your beautiful family, Thank you for sharing with us your beautiful experience and voyage… With my Love, nia (by the way my cat, my Princess, she is jealousy now, to be in boat should be much more enjoyable and exciting than to be indoor….)
