The prompt for the One Word Photo Challenge is ‘Cat’, which is an easy prompt for me – our cat Artemis has appeared lots of times on my blog, but for those of you who have not met her, I’ll tell you a bit about this amazing cat who lives on our boat…
In April 2014 we rescued this little scrap when we found her stuck in the engine of a 4×4 truck, on the island of Evia, in Greece.
She grew and grew, and turned into a beautiful cat. We called her Artemis, after the Greek goddess of the hunt, and the moon.
Artemis adapted really well to living on our yacht. We sail around the Greek islands and every few days we go somewhere new. Artemis jumps ashore, explores her surroundings, and always comes back to the boat.
Sometimes she follows us, like a puppy, to the nearest taverna, sits under our chairs, then walks back to the boat with us later.
She always likes to find a tree to climb. When she was very tiny, we had to rescue her a few times, until she was brave enough to come down by herself.
Artemis has been on planes, trains and ferries on our trips back to UK, and she takes it all in her stride.
We don’t make her wear a life jacket, or a lead. Cats are creatures that like their freedom, and she can go where she wants.
She has also been in two articles in ‘Your Cat’ magazine, and she has her own Facebook page.
