Cats afloat

Cats hate water, making a boat a perfect place for a cat asylumn.

I’ve lived in Amsterdam and only just discovered that someone had already thought of it. In fact Henriette van Weelde thought of it back in 1966.

It’s known as the poezenboot, and floats happily on the Singel.

They ask for volunteers, donations, and donations of newspapers.

I thought about volunteering, but I’d probably take home too many of the inmates.
