Reviews

"It's a purrfect read for lovers of cats, ships and history in general."--Catster Magazine

"Reveals the little-known history of cats as beloved--and surprisingly essential--shipmates of the old high seas. A purrfectly heartwarming tail indeed!"--David F. Winkler, PhD, Naval Historical Foundation

"Funny, furry, and fascinating! With a lovely balance between parody and earnest maritime history, Sandall has chosen priceless historic photographs, infused deep and wide-ranging research, and spun a ball of spellbinding and hilarious sea yarns."--Richard J. King, author of Lobster and The Devil's Cormorant and columnist for Sea History magazine

"At last! A history of cats of the sea. Long overdue, this book is as exquisite as a bowl of milk or a nice, plump ship's mouse."--Schooner the cat, as told to maritime archaeologist, author, and explorer James Delgado

"This delightful tome introduces us to the stories of seafurrring kitties. Bart's pitch-purrfect yarns take the reader on a meowverlous journey, while Ad's illustrations are the tasty cream on the kibble."--Anna Holloway, PhD, maritime historian, author, and curator

"In Seafurrers, author Philippa Sandall and first mate Bart take us on a fascinatingly eclectic sea voyage through history, geography, literature, and pop culture, humorously illustrated by Ad Long. A great resource for maritime historians and cat lovers alike."--André B. Sobocinski, historian, US Navy Bureau of Medicine and Surgery
