Comfy Sailing

Leeloo didn’t like Car o line much as she despises rolly anchorages and ignored all our efforts to get her interested in the boobies that were flapping all around the boat and sitting on the railing ogling her. A cat distinguishes 3 categories of animals: Can-be-eaten (go, catch!), can-eat-me (run, hide) and to-be-ignored (everything that doesn’t fall into the first two categories). She pretended the big seabirds were not there, no matter how often we pointed them out.

Leeloo doesn’t like passages either, but she’s no longer afraid when conditions get rough, she just stays in her sleeping box most of the time and gets seriously bored after a while. This passage has been so calm so far that she’s even hanging out in the cockpit with us. Also we’ve had fresh fish every day (so far we’ve caught two skipjack tunas and one yellowfin tuna), so the cat’s feasting on sashimi and getting noticably fatter. 110 nm to go to Tongareva (Penrhyn)!
