I wonder if animals get seasick. ? like a boat cat or boat dog.

You bet they do!* Our cat starts getting sick the minute she figures out she is on the way to the boat, but usually saves the fireworks for the really rough passages.* As the years have gone on, she seems to get a little better, but she still hates us for it.* I keep telling her the alternative is to live in a dumpster while were at sea, but it doesn't seem to help.*

As a professional mariner who get sea sick, I've tried all the cures, some better than others, but I've discovered what works best for me is to get plenty of sleep prior to the trip.* When I'm sleep deprived I'm very susceptible to seasickness..............Arctic Traveller
