Since my fictional hero, Xander de Hunter lives aboard a boat, this article in Adventure Cats caught my attention. While we haven’t tried boating with Purrseidon (mainly because we sold EvenStar), she does love going to the beach and riding the boogie board. Since real life seems to sneak into my fiction, Mischief, Xander’s apprentice also has her own boogie board. However, as I write the rough draft for Me-YEOW!, Mischief wants to learn to surf… don’t think we’ll try to teach Purrseidon that, but one never knows.
The Adventure Cat article is based on the experiences of several boating cats, including Georgie, who “has spent all her nine lives at sea” and Bailey Boat Cat, who uses a special rope to climb back aboard when he falls in….. what can I say, it happens. (in Purrseidon’s case, we suspect it is on purpose.)
If you haven’t met Xander, you can pick up a copy of Latitudes & Cattitudes for free at Amazon or your favorite ebook vendor. This is a prequel to the Sea Purrtector Series, and when he overcomes his fear of water.
