Cat owner and local boat live-aboard Robert Cox didn’t find it out of the ordinary when his Siamese, Mahi, went missing for a couple hours on Thursday, March 28.
But when he found Mahi lounging on a Gulfport Police boat, a few eyebrows were raised.
“I pulled into the community docks, and she just wandered off,” Cox said. “He just happened to end up [on the police boat].”
Cox, who lives on his sailboat year-round with 6-month-old Mahi says he lets his feline roam the shores and piers of the Gulfport area, adding that the cat always comes back.
“One time he went missing and I found a lady holding him over where Caddy’s is,” Cox said. “He’s just so friendly.”
