Magellan: Master and Puddleduck Commander
So this evening at a lovely, calm sunset we went for a puddleduck row on our beloved Dharma Duck with our beloved ship's Cat, Magellan, Aboard. I wasn't sure how he would take it. As you can see, it wasn't a problem.
What the hell?!
It took our beloved kitty all of about six seconds to own the boat.
Master and Commander
He settled in on the Puddleduck bow and surveyed the river like he owned it.
All these boats are mine.
I do not fully understand the romance of cats and boats, but they do seem to have this astonishing affinity. His comfort level when traveling pleased the both of us. As we move into the summer and begin to sail and travel more, it makes me happy that our companion will be a part of it. Gotta get the big moose a life vest.
