As we all know, cats aren’t that fond of the water, but sailing the high seas is another thing all together and for the past 8 years that’s exactly what Sailor the Persian cat has done. Since 2008 the grumpy feline has been living or ‘working’ onboard a Russian cruise ship for tourists that goes between Moscow and St. Petersburg with captain Vladimir Kotin at his side and even has his very own miniature sailors outfit.
Typically found keeping a close watch on the captain’s bridge from midnight to 4AM (and by close watch we mean sleeping), Sailor is quite easily the cutest captain you’ll ever see, born to sail the open seas!
Although Sailor is captain, he’s not the only cat to live on the ship. Sailor has taken on a Scottish Fold kitty named Boatswain who also has a tiny outfit including a striped shirt and sailor cap. Boatswain is a little lazier though and can often be found sleeping on the job.
