According to NY Daily News:
A sailor and his cat were dragged aboard a rescue ship after what he said were seven months of being stranded at sea.
Zbigniew Reket told the coast guard that picked him up off the coast of Reunion, in the Indian Ocean east of southern Africa, that he had engine troubles on the latest leg of his long-running journey.
Reket said that he and the cat he found on Comoros, Samira, only had supplies for a month when he set out for South Africa for more substantial boat repairs this May, but drifted around the western Indian Ocean after his engine gave out.
He was found on Christmas Day and he claims he survived by fishing.
