George the cat less anxious now cyclone has passed

PAUL Kozaki and his cat George rode out Cyclone Marcia on board their yacht Summer Breeze in Gladstone Marina.

They featured in a video on our website on Friday, showing George was more than a little anxious about the coming cyclone.

Paul laughed as he said he would have received more views if the video was of George dancing.

"He actually talks. Everyone would love to see that," he said.

Paul said the storm hadn't been as bad as expected.

"The wind and the rain came in at one stage and got up to about 45 knots," he said.

"I was a little worried, but this is the port authority and it's built tough."

He said the day after the storm had brought blue skies and calm.
