20 Purrfect Things of Captain Ahab The Sailor Cat & Little Zissou - How You Can Buy Them For Your Purr Babies / Cats
As you probably all know by now, we adopted this kitty cat and named him Captain Ahab aka The Sailor Cat. Just like any other cats, he loves jumping around, playing with things and spending the day just stretching and being lazy haha.
The only difference is that he lives in the sailboat with us and he loves the ocean. In fact, he already sailed with us from Florida to Bahamas, Turks & Caicos and now in the Dominican Republic (he already have 3 stamps on his pet passport!). We are looking forward to seeing him swim in the ocean one day. Haha!
He’s our baby and our family so we love him to bits and we’re spoiling him with a lot of goodies which he loves. Check out some of his things which I’m sure your fur babies (especially your purr-babies!) will love :)
1. Cat Hammock
There are times that the temperature inside our sailboat is sizzling hot-- that’s the time Captain Ahab chooses to sleep in this very comfy cat hammock rather than Jon’s side. Haha! It is made of rugged fabric which is heavy duty but lightweight so the cat's body temperature won't overheat despite the outside heat and their kalikutan. It has Giant Patented USA Suction Cups and stainless-steel cables that is built to last. Your purr-babies would love this especially in the summer :)
Amazon Price: $44.99
This is a soft & light ball which your cat would love to play around with. It doesn’t make this annoying sound when bitten by our Ahab and the best thing is it’s non-toxic so your kitty-safety is guaranteed.

3. Cat Ball
This is a luxurious bed which will be your dog/cat’s favorite place to sleep in. It has a cute whale design (perfect for our sailboat) and fringes which Ahab really loves. It’s easy to wash too!

One of the favorite things our cats love to chase (aside from a mouse) is that beaming laser light. Do you agree?

It also serves as a powerful flashlight that you can take with you for a late night walk with your pets. :)
