Boris was raised by his father, Horace, on a private cargo vessel, the Blue Turski. As a wee kitten, he helped steer and navigate the eighty-seven seas with great skill and great ease. All the while, his father and he battled enormous sea serpents, blood thirsty ghosts and the treacherous Eel People, only occasionally breaking for acorn cookies and sardine tea.
Shortly after his sixth birthday party, the Blue Turski was boarded in the dead of the night by Captain Bland Beard and his fancy band of pirates.  They savagely killed his father, stole the party favors and forced Boris to walk the dreaded and quite splintered plank. Fortunately, due to the pirates’ shoddy knot job and Boris’ ability to dislocate his tail, the resolute little fella wrestled himself free and narrowly escaped, swimming to the moonlit shore of a mysterious island.

I believe he lives there still.
