We’ve all heard about dogs joining their owners on epic journeys across the US and abroad— even here at TAILS we recently wrote about Emmie the “Super-Dog,” joining her guardians on a trek across the country in order to help military families in need.
But being a cat person myself, I began to wonder… what about cats? Don’t they deserve to get in on all the sightseeing fun that comes with traveling?
This brings me to an email I recently received, which highlighted the visual story of a special cat that got the once-in-nine-lifetimes chance to do just that!
Kitty is hiking from Miami, Florida to Ushuaia, Argentina along with her people, American travelers, Peter and Marcia Simmons.
What a purrrfect road companion!
From the pictures, it seems Kitty does more sleeping than sightseeing, but in some photos she can be seen awake and alert in Peter’s backpack or perched on his shoulder, trying to get a better view as they travel.
One thing is for sure, although Kitty doesn’t do much walking, she is definitely giving traveling-pooches a run for their money!
