Adventure Cats is the ultimate–and unexpected–guide to taking your cat into the wild. When animal writer and active hiker Laura Moss couldn’t find an online resource for hitting the trail with her cat, she created one. AdventureCats.org took off like wildfire, and now this collection of jaw-dropping photographs, inspiring stories of real-life cats, and all the how-to tips you need will take you and your cats well beyond the backyard. Learn how to leash-train a cat, what to do if you encounter wildlife on the trail, read up on winter safety tips, and find ways to bring a little bit of the outdoors to an indoor cat. From cats hiking on a leash, to trekking through snow, camping, kayaking, and even surfing, every story and photo is like catnip for animal lovers.
