It’s a big world out there, share it with your cat! Laura Moss, AdventureCats.org co-founder, reveals 5 activities you can enjoy with your cat (safely)!
Our feline friends aren’t generally thought of as adventurous animals. Sure, they fearlessly scale kitchen cabinets and make incredible leaps from the furniture, but when it comes to the outside world, most cats are content to observe it from the comfort of the living room window.
And then there are the kitties featured on AdventureCats.org. These fearless felines accompany their humans into nature where they engage in a variety of activities that you probably wouldn’t expect a cat to enjoy. Be sure to always place the safety and happiness of your cat first.
Courageous kitties that are comfortable on a leash may enjoy leaving the familiarity of the backyard behind and embarking on a nature hike. The new scents, sights and sounds can provide mental stimulation, and your cat will also be getting some great exercise.
NOTE: Before you head into the great outdoors with your cat in tow, be sure to brush up on the basics of hiking with a cat. Also, make sure your cat has a collar and ID tags and is up to date on flea, tick and heartworm treatments.
