Kicking the weekend off on the right foot, Aron and I paid a visit to the happy kitties of 'De Poezenboot.'
To provide a little context to what we considered a major outing, "De Poezenboot," which translates literally to "The Cat Boat," is a houseboat sitting on the Singel canal, remodeled and completely devoted to the nobel profession of sheltering felines. It's been on my To-Do List before I even got to Amsterdam.
We made the ten minute walk from my dorm to the boat, forging through a slight drizzle, our enthusiasm entirely undeterred by the weather. Today's voyage was made in loving memory of Tiger, Aron's recently passed cat. RIP Tiger, you were one of the good ones. After a tough week, we both needed a little dose of kitty lovin.
You can read all about The Cat Boat here. I'd also recommend taking the KattenQuiz; how else will you "find out if you are a real cat boyfriend?" Lol. I'm seriously looking into volunteering. If you're Snapchat friends with me, you know how obsessed I am with my cat, Finn. There's obviously no substitution, but I'll take any cat contact I can get.
