Adventure Cats: Living Nine Lives to the Fullest
Added to Registry
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.
The book Adventure Cats hosts a collection of jaw-dropping photographs, inspiring stories of real-life cats, and all the how-to a cat owner needs - will take readers and their cats well beyond the backyard. Learn how to leash-train a cat. What to do if you encounter wildlife on the trail. Plus, winter safety tips, and how to bring a little bit of the outdoors to an indoor cat.
The stories themselves are catnip for animal lovers, from Nanakuli, the one-eyed cat who hands ten; to Georgie, a four-year-old gray tabby who lives on a sailboat; to Quandary, who not only insists on hiking with her family but also teaches them a valuable lesson: When you follow your cat's natural tendency to wander, you experience the outdoors at a slower, richer pace. This book will delight every cat person, regardless of whether their pet is inclined to adventure. (Take the quiz at the beginning of the book to find out!)
