Anyone who knows cats will be aware that the biggest killer is kidney failure. The only test worth a cat taking is the relatively new (2 years) SDMA test. It detects kidney failure early. Jamie held her while the vet’s assistant gently pushed Millie’s head up and the vet coaxed her to accept first a razor (to remove some fur) and then a needle into her jugular.

Do locals just consider yachties as tourists? What happens when you want to quit being a liveaboard, and why would you do it? What’s it like sailing with kids? These and more questions were answered over one week on youtube.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock you’ll no doubt have heard that we lost Millie overboard. In our latest vlog we cover off the story. We’ve changed things around a bit on the video front. The editing is faster and we’re trying to engage more with our viewers by answering questions and covering off topics that you might find interesting. If you have any questions about being a cruiser, or about anything else for that matter, please do send us a message and we’ll try our best to answer it in a future episode.
How/when/why did we end up living this alternative, slightly crazy life? It will be 10 years in December. Blimey!

He told the others to prepare themselves for some potential big winds.
