A while back, we introduced you to Craig Armstrong and his amazing rescue cat, Millie, who like to go on rock climbing adventures together. Now it seems that Craig and Millie have inspired an entire movement to get people (and their cats, obvs) outdoors and exploring the world.
Craig calls this lifestyle “catting” (oh, how we love this), and he talks with the media about it frequently. Just a few months ago, he even gave a speech about catting to a group of students at Westminster College in Salt Lake City. When asked what inspired him to start hiking and climbing with his cat, Craig said, “I go climbing a lot, I go on a lot of weekend trips. I just started taking her with me. It just seemed like a natural thing to do.”
Natural indeed. Who doesn’t want to hang out with their pet in beautiful places? Dog people have been doing it for ages. And now inspired cat people are taking the world by storm, as evidenced by our new favorite Instagram account — Adventure Cats @adventurecatsorg.
First off, that name is giving us serious heart eyes. Adventure Cats. Adventure Cats! It kind of sounds like a super hero franchise. And the pictures are even better! These cats basically ARE superheroes. They climb. They hike. They camp. They even swim. It’s all amazing, and we just can’t look away. We CAN’T.
