Momo the Cat Lives on a Sailboat & Poops in the Toilet!

Momo is the coolest cat ever. He was a stray who found us when he was 1 year old. He learns and adapts quickly. He has traveled extensively by boat, car, and plane. He currently lives with us in the Caribbean on our sailboat. He has even learned to use the toilet, thanks to the Litter Kwitter system. All we have to do is flush! I would highly recommend toilet training to any cat owner. It makes owning a cat much easier, and you don't have to worry about buying litter or having a smelly litter box. He has fallen into the water a couple of times, and has proven to have decent swimming skills... though he definitely doesn't like being wet. He is slightly overweight, but we are working on daily calorie reduction and being more active by having daily laser chasing sessions. He used to wake us up in the night when he wanted food, but since we got him a Crestuff automatic food dispenser we have been able to sleep through the night. Now he depends on "the machine" for his meals. Now we can easily control his portions, and he gets fed 3 small meals per day so he doesn't pig out all at once. He has good grooming habits, so he doesn't need to be brushed. We try to brush him anyway (even though he's not a big fan) to reduce potential for hairballs. He's definitely not a lap cat, but he's still a very loving cat. He talks to us to tell us what he's about to do ("I'm going outside", "I'm going to the toilet", "Let's go to bed"), and likes to follow us around the boat to see what we're doing. We love our little hairy baby :)
