(Our cat is in there; she is black so she is difficult to see.)
We were going to try to find a new home for our cat, who is 13-years-old. I know, it sounds terrible, but I have fears of her falling off the sailboat when we aren’t looking and drowning or being eaten. Or, when we are at the property, a coyote will sneak in and drag her off. I was thinking I would rather have the guilt of abandoning her to a new family then to have her die on the sailboat or at the property.
But we realize now that no one is going to want a 13-year-old cat, so we bought a fabulous cat carrier that has “slide outs” for her to stretch out in. The plan is to take her with us when we go to the property or go sailing on our sailboat.
Right now, she’s decided to sleep in it. My husband is so smart. He put it on the bed and opened it up, to see if she would inspect it, and she did. She appears to have made it her own.
The carrier will give us a place to put her when conditions are dangerous, or when we are traveling. We have never done this before, so we don’t know if it will work, but we’re trying to figure it out.
