One of our panelists at Meowfest's virtual festival are the cat parents of the dynamic feline duo, Birch and Luna. Birch and Luna are - let's just say - some pretty experienced travelers. From poking around their backyard to gallivanting around 5+ National Parks, these kitties are living the dream!
Their knack for exploring (and looking absolutely adorable while doing it) makes anyone a little jealous, not to mention provides some pretty sick photo ops for this fantastic pair.
Let's get some insight into their National Parks road trip to see just how these cat parents make cat travel pawsible!
1) What would you say to people who don't think it's possible or a good idea to travel or explore the outdoors with your cat?
2) How many parks did you take Birch and Luna to?
We took them “near” about 18 national parks. We were careful to choose hikes outside of ntl park boundaries, unless it was a national forest that allowed leashed pets. Many ntl parks do not allow leashed pets on trails, but some allow leashed pets to be out in certain parking lots/viewpoints etc. We wanted to be respectful of that! We learned along the way that ntl forests, ntl monuments, and state parks usually have more flexible rules!
3) How would you describe the path of your road trip with the cats? And what were the coolest places you went on your travels?
Here are some adorable photos and videos from their trip!
