Mittens, our ship's cat, was finally located yesterday along with her new litter of kittens! They will be up for adoption as soon as they are properly weaned from mama cat. For you new shipmates, Mittens was recovered from the Brazilian rain forest on one of our South American voyages and is a jaguar.
On a sadder note, three sailors remain missing this week. It's presumed they went ashore, or jumped ship, but definitely "NOT eaten", the Captain assures us.
