Janice: this better work. If I get ravaged by one of my cats while doing this, I'm holding you responsible.

Well I do have ice so if there is a problem...

First attach harness the wrong way.
Day two through five attach a short piece of line for kitties to drag for brief periods of time.

Once they are comfy then go with the full leash and a walk, perhaps to your bride as she crinkles a package of kitty treats. Reward, then remove leash.

With conditioning this should be effective for your purr factories.

Good luck!

LOL, Howard and Lilly would get on ok. Seriously Lilly is a PITA whether on the boat or at home. Every nook and cranny is fair game. Fortunately I've been able to keep her out of the engine room so far.

Note the "cat control device" (spray bottle) that isn't very effective anymore.

One thing that has amazed me is the number of people who have cats that hate riding in cars, but love their boats. I've seen cats that start yelling just from the car engine starting. I think they just don't feel the movement or the sound on a boat like in a car.

Ive had Jinx in the car a few times. He hated it. I want to have him loose maybe I just never wanted a mess if he went or since just me in the truck I do not want to have him in a bad area and I get distracted. Only one way to dimd out. He accepted me I think. Sleeps in my arm at night. My first cat kinda different then dogs ive alwayys been around but Jinx is the first animal i have ever had under a roof I lived in.

Quickly the first day we got him he pooped so bad a block away from where I got him. Had to pull over and clean the box and we had about a hour drive to go home.

Maybe now 3 years later and how he warmed up to me next trip ill see how he is maybe tomorrow open in the truck going to the boat.

I wondered about this. When I was living I an apt 12 stories high, with terrace.

I tried a harness. Cat got out of it ib a manner of seconds.
He'd sleep on the two inch wide rail.

Died of old age.

Richard I figured you must be a cat person. Po Kitty sure did like you. If you ever get back to Miami, I'll have to introduce you to my cat herd at home.

Question for you cat experts....

Is there a way to get cats claws back after cutting them? My admiral has one like that who would probably make a good boat cat, as much as I'm against it, but front claws would be nice.

No, to de-claw a cat they actually amputate the cats toe at the first joint.

Don't bring that cat on the boat and keep her/him in the house.

Smart cat

I knew a guy on a small sailboat who had a large unfixed tomcat. If anchored out near shore the tom would swim ashore for a night on the town. But in the morning he would sit on shore yowling until he rowed ashore and pick him up. Who ever said cars are dumb.
