Boatman's Best Friend


  1. There is usually a dog aboard these transport vessels, I've noticed ... but I once saw one on a Venetian canal with a cat sitting curled up on its rug, like this, obviously supervising the journey!

    1. I'd have to think about when I last saw a cat on a boat like this, Ella, I think you had a rare sighting. The workplaces in which cats are often quite numerous are on a few fishermen's and crabbers' docks in the north lagoon, around Burano and Mazzorbo, where they laze about until someone comes in with (or starts sorting through) a catch.
