This is absolutely fantastic! I love the perspective and light, as well as the excellent detail. A ship is not a place you'd expect to see a cat - and with the low POV you made her(or him?) look like a pirate captain.
OOOOhhh... so THAT is Ditty! I've heard of the feline, never saw a photo of him! I only heard about the other cat I believe died a while back.
Kalmar Nyckel is a fine vessel! One of the favorites in the Pirate Community.
Oh? Hmm... Maybe it was on another ship. But there was a couple or few years back of a ship's cat, I thought it was with the Kalmar Nyckel that was unfortunately run over. It was a cat that liked to venture into each port the ship it was with came into. Sad story.
I do like the idea of Ship's Cat though. I have a cat myself, named Magellan, he's quite the explorer. Have had him at a couple events and even camping. He doesn't mind the cannon fire or water. As a Pirate Portrayer, I steer away from a parrot or monkey. Give me the ship's cat!
Was it him? Still... poor kitty. It's been a while. Let's pray no other ship's cat follows in the same fate.
Ditty is just darling though! Looks like my cat (but Magellan is a darker, silvery gray with no white anywhere). Such a handsome boy Ditty is. Proud of his ship, isn't he?
