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

  3. You and your boat are both very beautiful. I am reminded of the story that my mother told of a pet raccoon named Aloysius who sailed down to Virginia Beach on the Intercoastal Waterway on the family boat. Evidently someone taught him to go to the bathroom over the side of the boat…have you figured that trick out yet?

    A handsome Siamese you are, and the Nocturne is amazing. Fortunate you are to have some cooperative, obedient humans to shuttle you around. I look forward to reading up on your adventures. Thank you for clicking on my blog recently, is much appreciated. I won’t offer you treats, like a mere kitty; I understand Siamese are more, discerning, sophisticated, so I shall leave some proper gourmet snacks on the shiny platter for you to enjoy if and when you choose to. Cheers, good sailing, ~Scott PS Loving that life jacket you’re sporting.

  17. Hi Bailey. We share a birthday, only I am 48 years older. My wife and I want to live on a boat in a few years and will be taking our two cats with us. Just curious what problems you have encountered. Do you mind that you don’t have much room to run around? Did you ever fall in the water?

    Hi Bailey! Thank you for liking my blog a-cat-a-day.com. I have to say that my stay-at-home kitties seem pretty feeble compared to an adventurer like you. I adore your photographs and really admire your mum and dad’s photography skills. I have followed your blog, so I don’t miss a thing and I’m going to mention you in today’s post. Perhaps, if you’re feeling generous, you might like to be a guest star on A Cat A Day one day? Just let me know! Finalement, je veux bien savoir si vous parlez français aussi bien que vous parlez anglais! J’adore les chats bilingues! Florence, Percy, Willow et Milka vous font des gros bises de chat =^.^=

    Bailey,
    We share many things in common. First, Happy Birthday (early) mine is a day before yours on the 8th. When I lived in Venice, Italy for three years – many years ago – I spent all my birthdays in Nice, France. Also, I need to introduce you to a beautiful Persian – Lucy.

    Thanks for liking my post on Lock 12. I wish you gentle winds & happy sailings. I’ll visit you often to see how your journey is going… do the same. Also, I’ll post a pic of Lucy soon. Just to tempt you . Carmen Aida
