Cats are mysterious.
There is way more than what meets the eye. This picture doesn’t have just two sides but it’s a multidimensional image. The more we think we know this animal, the lesser we actually do. Today, they have conquered our homes with their charm and intelligence, the next thing we know they’re running the country. We understand that cats have a natural drive to hunt and be wild. After all, it’s in their DNA. But, we had no clue this adorable furball had such an adventurous spirit. We can domesticate this animal but can’t kill its vibe.
From long jumps on trees, sliding down the mountains, taking boat rides in the river to camping in the woods, cats have a zeal for adventures! We did our digging and found 18 amazing photos of cats that are living an adventurous life. These photos compel us to rethink our life decisions. Scroll down to see these cats living their best life.
Buckle up kitty! It’s gonna be a bumpy ride.

Physical activities for a cat can keep them both happy and healthy. It helps them satisfy their need for stalking and hunting. It also helps in using all that energy they have been building up from napping unpredictably. Taking cats out on a hike or even to the backyard can be a great adventure for them. In addition to this, they will also help you see the world from a whole new perspective.
However, keep in mind that not all the cats are adventurous. Some just enjoy curling up indoors and seeing the world from the open windows.
Looks like this guy just woke up from a very good catnap.

Now, the question is, how do we prepare them for adventures like camping, boat rides and stuff like that? Well, you should start early. First thing’s first. Know your cat. Is your cat an indoor feline or likes to go out? Never force a cat to do something out of its comfort zone. You know the cat rules right? Everything that involves them or concerns them needs to be done on their terms and that’s just how it works.
Secondly, be sure to familiarize your cat to a harness. Keeping cats outdoor without a harness and a leash is a bad idea. They can run away and never come back. Or, they may get hurt by other animals in the wild e.g. snakes. It’s better to make them wear harness for at least 15 minutes a day so they don’t feel uncomfortable in it.
Third and foremost, don’t rush things with a cat. They have there own pace and need time to get used to an outside environment. Start slowly and then keep adding things to it.
“Ah! How beautiful is it when the water can’t touch you…”
“Hmm… Good! Now go straight.”
When traveling outdoors with a cat, be sure to come prepared. Pack their food, water, and a bag pack your cat can slip into for a catnap. Be mindful of rewarding them from time to time with their favorite treats when they do something like making a jump or walking a mile. Cats react very positively when appreciated and do not forget to be playful with them. They enjoy it and this also helps strengthen the bond between the owner and the cat.
City life shenanigans…
