Happy Friday! I wanted to take a moment to mention a blog that has been truly inspiring to me- baileyboatcat.com. I stumbled across it a few years ago when I was doing a Google image search of cats wearing life jackets. The reason behind this has to do with my Dad, a sailor who loves to take his poor cats out with him…we were debating the likelihood of a cat wearing a life jacket happily. His cat, unlike Bailey, is not a born sailor as maybe you can guess from this picture:
Bailey, who is a Siamese cat, and happily wears a life jacket, looks quite similar to my own Tonkinese cat, Maya, (seen below) which further interested me. The writing and pictures were so engaging and funny that I was soon totally hooked. “Bailey” would post almost every day, giving updates on his sailing adventures and his life in general. When thinking about beginning my own blog, I drew a lot of inspiration from Bailey (and his “Mom”). The writing is so fresh and fun that I always felt happier after reading his blog posts. While my cat will NEVER be a floating feline, we love hearing all about your adventures. Thank you Bailey for sharing your experiences with me and all your other furry furriends!
