Pets aboard ship are always such a joy. Cats in particular seem to adapt beautifully to boating environments, their inherent balance and grace dealing with the motion of the vessel effortlessly, the vessel providing a myriad of close hiding spaces to inhabit, the marine environment full of fascinating sights and smells. Even an elderly kitty like Kallisti, an October kitty who turned 17 aboard ship, seemed to love the boat and it's ways.
We shall miss the Kali-cat, her strong voice, quirky personality, and boundless affection. It is hard, in moments like this, to remember how much our lives have been enriched by our furry and unfortunately short-lived companions. I, for one, shall try very hard to remember.
Sail on, shipmate. Sail on.
