Liz Clark, a self-proclaimed “she-pirate,” and her cat Amelia have been sailing around the world in an 11-by-40-foot boat since 2006. Together, they’ve traveled the coasts of Mexico and Central America and parts of the South Pacific. According to Clark’s website, this journey “isn’t just a surf trip — it’s a lifestyle, passion, and search for better ways for humanity to inhabit our shared planet.”
On her quest to find more environmentally friendly ways to live, Clark found Amelia when the cat was just 6 months old, she told BuzzFeed: “She has adapted to living surrounded by water. She’s learned to trust that she will be safe with me.”
Amelia is reportedly great at fishing too. “On calm nights, she fishes off of a soft top surfboard attached to the side of [the boat] with a small light that attracts fish,” Clark said.
