Woman Quits Her Job And Sails Around The World With Her Cat

Liz Clark, who affectionately refers to herself as a “she-pirate,” made the life-changing decision to leave her job as a bartender in 2006 and embark on a sailing journey around the world. Liz started her journey in San Diego, California and was gifted a Cal 40 sailboat with the agreement that she would document her exciting sailing adventures. However, Liz wasn’t sailing alone for long, as in 2013, she welcomed a six-month-old rescue kitten, who joined her on her explorations.

The kitten, whom Liz named Amelia, has adapted well to a life surrounded by water. Amelia loves fishing from the boat, walking on the beach, and going on hiking expeditions with Liz. “She has to go out of a cat’s comfort zone often. But I think she now understands that I will keep her safe, and she will have a lot of fun in the end. She makes Swell, the yacht, feel much more like a home,” expressed Liz.

Liz and her feline companion have sailed along the western coast of Mexico and Central America, as well as around the South Pacific. At first, Amelia was skinny and malnourished, but Liz observed a fierce and carefree potential within the rescue cat.

Amelia also enjoys spa sessions with her favorite human. Liz was lucky to find such a compatible companion in Amelia, as the cat shares her enthusiasm for adventure.

Initially, leaving behind her family, friends, and the safety of the dock was scary for Liz. She was unsure if she could captain a boat as big as the Cal 40 or manage everything that goes on during a voyage that takes one off the grid. However, Liz knew that she had to try, as she would regret not taking this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

We are thrilled that Liz found a traveling partner in Amelia, the rescue cat, and we hope that they continue to have many more adventures together.
