Companion to Day Fifty-Six: Ship’s Cat?

Could this cat be a pirate cat?

YES: She’s survived many a long fall, so clearly she’s more or less indestructable.

YES: She kills large birds, so rats should be no problem.

YES: She likes water.


YES: . . . and sunshine.


NO: The reason she survives so many falls is because she’s so uncoordinated. At sea, she’d probably fall overboard before the ship left port.

NO: She needs frequent brushing. Pirates don’t brush their OWN hair, so it’s unlikely they’d brush hers.

NO: She’s not exactly vicious.
