01:44-02:11 (En) Well, by the low the ships need to have a fight with the rats. This is by the low - every ship has to do that. There are two options. Option number one what most of the people do in the professional sailing business - there are companies, which take care of the rats. The second option - what we decided to choose - is to employ the cat on the ship.

02:11-02:33 (En) It has to be not just a cat - the Euro certified cat, which means you need to spend a lot on veterinary, on the vaccines, on the health care, on the cat food, etc. So this is rather an expensive stuff to keep the cat on board.
