Ships Cat Patrici on Guard by Dennis Melling

Currently unavailable for purchase

Patrici and I lived on board our yacht in Gibraltar for 8 years.
A daily task for Skipper Patrici, on board SCOD SC71, St Christopher in Marina Bay, Gibraltar, was to watch the boat while the captain was away.
Patrici was found in a local cat shelter (in 2000) with 98 other cats looking for a home and since then has been my closest friend and companion.
We are still together but our home is now in Romania.

    Patrici has been with me since 2000 and has always been loving and adorable, including helping me through convalescence after a by-pass operation.

    Wonderful photo! It looks like she’s doing a great job watching the boat for you.

  • Thank you :)
    Patrici was very proud of her job and other cats, birds and seagulls, were kept well away :)
