Dogs are classic adventure companions. They are energetic, reliable and always keen for a good hike - but what about cats? No one ever mentions our feline friends - until Liz came along.

Liz Clark has spent the last ten years surfing and travelling the globe on her 40 foot boat with her cat Amelia (the tropicat).

Liz found Amelia when she was just 6 months old - and she's travelled with her ever since. "She has adapted to living surrounded by water. She's learned to trust that she will be safe with me," she told Buzzfeed.
