Meet the bloke behind the scenes…

My name is Dave, I created Nellie Cat to provide you with fun and entertainment. The Ship’s Cat website has evolved and changed since it was first launched back in 2018, with new character makeovers and ‘deeper’ cat personalities which, I hope, will keep you amused. Yes, Nellie really does exist – and she is a ship’s cat.

The Ship’s Cat is an exploratory concept using proven marketing and fundraising techniques. Right now we are testing differing target audiences through social media and demographic profiling, to gain an understanding of which visual and copywriting style works best to raise money in the sometimes jungle world of charity donating. Your ‘coffee’ donations will contribute to website setup costs and build the foundations to provide ongoing funding streams to a number of animal charity organisations. If you have enjoyed your read about Nellie’s escapades and bizarre problem solving style, then please buy a coffee.

To learn more about myself and why we need your support, please visit our feed website here. You can also read more about the real Nellie Cat and her travels from England to El Salvador here. Also read about Nellie Cat’s ship, sailing vessel Sänna and their circumnavigation voyage.

Thank you for your valued support.
