Living the dream with her kitty!
Liz Clark and Amelia the Tropicat live on a boat named Swell, which is 11 feet wide and 40 feet long.
Clark found Amelia when she was 6 months old and adopted her.
“She has adapted to living surrounded by water,” Clark said of her cat companion. “She’s learned to trust that she will be safe with me.”
Clark, who is originally from San Diego, said she “had dreamed of sailing around the world since I was a kid.”
Clark has now traveled along the western coast of Mexico and Central America, as well as to the South Pacific.
“I sleep on a pool mat under the stars,” Clark said of life aboard Swell. “But I feel rich when I look up at that night sky and breath the fresh ocean air and leap into the sea each morning.”
Amelia especially loves fishing from the boat.
“On calm nights, she fishes off of a soft top surfboard attached to the side of Swell with a small light that attracts fish,” Clark said.
Amelia also enjoys going for walks on the beach and hikes in the mountains.
Amelia also enjoys other forms of transportation, such as cars, motorbikes, and canoes.
“She makes Swell feel much more like a home.”
