The Ship’s Cat

I don’t wanna be a ship’s cat…

The trials and tribulations of a ship’s cat are nothing new. In these modern times many sailboats, merchant vessels and naval ships leave harbours throughout the world with at least one ship’s cat onboard. It’s considered both mariner’s good luck and a cost effective means of keeping down vermin… in fact the love affair between sailors and their feline companions is a well documented tradition dating back many hundreds of years. At the Battle of Trafalgar the English naval hero Horacio Nelson died onboard HMS Victory  with his beloved cat Bottle by his side.

For those of you with a keen sense of detail you may well note that Nellie at first was named after her hero Nelson, the greatest of all England’s naval commanders. But an early visit to the veterinary confirmed that a more feminine name change was in order.

And there’s even well documented evidence that in more ancient times marauding vikings landed on distant shores with the sailing master’s cat often the first ashore… no doubt in search of edible food or perhaps some helpless maiden to take in hand.

Nellie now has her own Facebook and Instagram pages so that she can stay in touch with her ever growing list of fans.
