hi im C!! im an artist/writer/cosplayer and i am perpetually angry. fan of: harry potter, inception, various tv shows, hikaru no go (it deeply affected my soul), tom hardy, art, good animals, and lots of other things!
I am genderqueer and i talk about gender stuff frequently. i am most comfortable being referred to by neutral pronouns. (they/them/theirs)
this blog is actually about shipping though. (otps)
Okay now I am reading about THE SHIP’S CAT: a common sight on many trading, exploration, and naval ships that goes back to ancient times. Cats have been carried on ships for a number of reasons, the most important being to catch mice and rats. They also offered companionship and a sense of home and security to sailors who could be away from home for long periods, especially in times of war.
These are cuties Convoy, Peebles, Simon and Blackie uguuu~
THERES ALSO THIS LEGEND OF A CAT THEY CALL UNSINKABLE SAM but people aren’t sure how true it is but they say a cat survived the sinking of 3 ships during WWII what a badass.
