Boating with cats is such an exciting way to let them embrace adventures on the water alongside you! For those boat kitties that are lucky enough to live on the water and for those who enjoy a hobby of kayaking, cruising or ferry trips it's important to always stay safe and be conscious of the power of the sea.
Boating With Cats
When boating with cats, the highest priority should be keeping your pet safe should they fall in the water or be unable to swim, for this we have a range of cat life jackets designed for cats that adventure. It's also important to ensure all your other boat cat gear is able to stand up to the elements of water so we provide a range of water proof cat flea collars, water resistant cat harnesses and water resistant cat ID tags. If your cat isn't as confident on the water yet as others, cat travel sickness tablets can help or our range of natural cat calmers including cat calming wipes and cat calming spray.
When boating with cats, try to ensure you slowly acclimatise them to the new environment on the water, whether that be a kayak or a yacht. Observation is key and will help you decide whether you need calming tablets, cat life jackets etc. Like most things with cats, it will take time and patience to adapt to the new environment but once they do you can have all the fun on and in the water together.
Perhaps as the next step your outdoor cat might join the list of others that can swim and be ready to take on stronger seas! Just remember, boat life isn't for every person nor animal so take it steady and work up to it with the right accessories in hand.
