Salty, Top Cat on the Seas

There’s nothing quite like being out in the fresh salt air traveling over the high seas and for one cat it seems has the heart a sailor.

When Bernadette and Andy sold their house and moved onto the 43ft yacht they had restored, Neo, a four-year-old Turkish Van who is affectionately called “Salty,” and buddy, springer spaniel, Pippa, went along for the permanent cruise. Already they have visited Somerset, Plymouth, Cornwall, Wales, and the Western Isles of Scotland, all the while sharing their adventures on Instagram.

Already Salty’s account is at 25,000 and counting,

“He enjoys being nosy sitting in the cockpit of the boat watching the comings and goings wherever we are,” Bernadette told the Press Association.

“Dogs are a fairly common sight on a boat but often people are a little surprised when they see a cat sat in the cockpit or staring out of a window at them,” she continuing, “Salty has his own cabin so can be regularly seen peering out of his window at whomever decides to pass.”
