Just when you thought you knew all there was to know about cats comes the ultimate—and unexpected—guide to taking your cat into the wild. Here are cats walking on a leash. Cats hiking on a leash. Cats tramping through snow. Cats camping. Cats kayaking, canoeing, even surfing—yes, cats who love water.
This beautifully photographed book came about after avid hiker, cat-lover and writer, Laura J Moss scoured the internet looking for tips on taking her beloved cat out into the wilds with her. The internet came up empty and thus AdventureCats.org was born.
Jam-packed with helpful and informative hints and tips on equipment, training and safety; this book will help you decide (via the fun quiz near the beginning) if your cat is likely to take to the great outdoors; and if so, how best to get them ready for adventure!
The jaw-dropping photographs throughout are an absolute pleasure to peruse, whether as a means to whet you & your cats’ appetites for adventure; or just to please the eye as you both snuggle on the sofa.
There are also plenty of inspiring true life stories of real-life adventure cats; such as Vladimir, on course to claim the record for visiting all 59 US national parks; Georgie, the tabby Captain, currently sailing the world; and Jesper, the skiing Norwegian kitty.
Rating and Recommendations
A beautifully illustrated; uplifting and interesting read, 5 out of 5 stars.
Half how-to guide, half inspiring stories, this wittily written and informative book will appeal to cat-lover and adventurers alike.
Of course, not all cats are up to a life of adventure…
So, do you think your cat would be up for adventure?
Until next time,
