How did we make sailors out of the two cats who adopted us over the years? (11 and 4 years old. See their bios in our Crew Manifest.)
I have considerable experience from the past raising a cat on a boat [he loved to travel in boats, automobiles, airplanes, etc. as a consequence] but little experience helping landlubber felines adapt to life onboard.
We found some books written by a cruising Veterinarian who goes by Capt'n Dr. Dave.
They helped guide us through the process with our feline crew.

How did you get your landlubber cats to adopt to life afloat?
