The roommates decided to name the kitten Spritzer, and officially adopted her into their home. When they first found her, she was so small and easygoing, and thought nothing of being carried around everywhere. Since they lived on a lake, Mitchell and his roommate had a small motorboat, and later a pontoon, that they liked to drive around in, and they began bringing Spritzer along with them. The little cat was completely unfazed by the boat trips and mostly napped or played with whatever she could find rolling around on the floor.
Mitchell also enjoyed kayaking, but never thought of bringing Spritzer along with him on those adventures — until one day, she invited herself along.
