In Russia, water is afraid of cats.

A cat takes his job as ship captain very seriously — at least we’re projecting that on his focused, frowny face — on a tourist boat between Moscow and St. Petersburg, according to Ruptly.

Sailor the Persian is the first to help helm the vessel. The second cat crew member is Boatswain, who also does his job very cutely in a little French sailor’s outfit.

We’re sure these two cats will take the boat through rough waters with bravery and strength. Or take a nap. Or take what might be the best picture  on vacation ever in a selfie with a tourist.

Either way, watch out for these two.
