Here she is a 5 month old Tabby cat, big enough to deal with our super active Chica. She is a great mother to Chica, calm, patient and playful. She has proven a great companion and the perfect partner for our Chica. We picked her up at the Mazatlan Animal Shelter from among a few hundred cats. Following the adoption procedures, the Shelter had her spayed for 200 pesos (about C$18.00) and we picked her up the day following her operation. She appeared very comfortable.
We isolated her in our stateroom to recuperate before introducing her to Chica. A few days later they were smelling each other from under the door and on the 4th day, we allowed them to get to know each other up close and personal.
Ginger never made a noise and showed a lot a patience with Chica who was making strange and ominous sounds. A night and a day later they were playing with each other and sharing the same bed. They are now sisters for life.
In the new year we will have Chica spayed.
About the 15th of January, we will start training both of them to do their business on our aft toilet. It should take no more than a couple of weeks. Then we will be free from all the cat liter which can be found every where in the boat. We have added a few more pictures in our Photo Gallery.
