Meet Skatty



Strauss von Skattebol of Rebelpaws, a.k.a. Skatty, is a 6-month-old polydactyl Maine Coon an adventure cat AND he’s also a service cat. While he doesn’t drive a wheelchair, like Dezi, he is a vital partner for Thompson, the deaf captain, as they circumnavigate the globe aboard La Chica. “Without any training, Skatty has twigged that I don’t hear,” Thompson said. “He lets me know if a boat comes alongside, people are at my door (ashore) and when my phone receives text messages.” You can read all about Skatty’s story here or, if you prefer photos, check out his album on Instagram and/or visit his website.
