Luna the Boat Cat



Hello.  My name is Luna.  I live on a boat with my family.  I have a mom, a dad, and two sisters who
take care of me.  We love each other very much.
What's it like being a feline living on a boat you might ask.  Well, there are definitely pros and cons.




Sometimes I get a little seasick... It took me a while to get my sea legs.  I am not a fan of the engine noise.  I used to run and hide under the bathroom sink when the engine was on.  I started to feel like I was going to starve to death, so now I venture out more when the engine is running.  I prefer sailing so that I can hear the gentle lapping of the water on the hull and the dolphins playing in the water.  I am always offering to use my night vision skills on deck during night watches, but my owners are always shooing me away.  I guess it might be because I don't follow the everyone in the cockpit has to have a life vest on rule.  I'm not a big fan of rules... 


I pretty much get the run of the house (boat). 




In my free time, I enjoy fishing and talking to birds. 



It's not all fun and games.  Living on a boat and exploring the seas is hard work. Being a black cat in the Mexico heat is not easy.  Sometimes I just have to find a cool spot to nap.



Recently, my owners stuck me in a cage and put me on a plane to Arizona.  They made me hide in hotel rooms along the way.  It's a good thing I'm so laid back or I could have really made their trip miserable.  Now I'm in a big house that doesn't lean sideways.  I have a lot of room to run and play.  They have these big plush things called couches everywhere.  OMG they make my claws feel amazing when I scratch them.  My owners put some dumb pink covers over my claws.  I guess I was causing some damage or something.  Humans aren't very smart though, I have these things called teeth that can just rip the dumb pink plastic things off my claws no problem. 

Being in a house is ok I guess.  It's just has hot as Mexico though.  I'm not sure why we left.  I do enjoy watching the bunnies, lizards, and quail run through the yard though. 


I miss my boat life.
