this is cat Rubens. Rubens isn’t a normal cat – he is a ship’s cat!
You don’t know what a ship’s cat is? It sails across the seven seas, is more than hundreds of times more courageous than ordinary cats, is not afraid of water at all, knows how to balance elegantly in the masts of storm-ridden ships – and – everyone knows that – is one of the best mousers of the world.
When seamen lie down in their bunks after a lot of hard work they are sometimes visited by the ship’s cat. It then starts to snuggle up under the blanket purring peacefully and warms the cold feet of the sailors. But only if it likes to do so. When it comes to this it is not much more different than any other cat of the world.
When ship’s cat Rubens isn’t busy on captain Kuddel’s ship on the high seas he is roaming through the Maritime Museum. He loves it when the decks of the old storehouse are full of people. But what he likes even more is when the museum is closed and he can prowl around as he likes. He then puts his curious nose in every corner and every room even in those where he is normally not allowed to be. There is always someone who forgets to shut a door and he, of course, uses such an opportunity instantly.
On his forays Rubens discovers a lot of exciting and secretive things and comes across mysterious and sometimes uncanny stories. Join him on his adventures and help him to solve all the secrets and riddles. In addition, you learn the one or the other story from his eventful life of a ship’s cat.
Maybe you are even going to meet Rubens in person the next time you visit the Maritime Museum? However, you can never be sure where he is exactly and if he isn’t already on his next adventure trip again.
