Travel Cat Tuesday: Andie & Wilfie - the Kitties Behind Travel Cat
On Oct. 6th, we celebrate the 4th anniversary of Travel Cat by Your Cat Backpack, so we thought we'd take a sneak peek into the lives of the kitties behind the company this Travel Cat Tuesday - and their cat parents of course!
Meet Travel Cat husband & wife co founders, Emily & Ian, who started Travel Cat by Your Cat Backpack back in 2017 after they rescued Andie as a kitten.They weren't planning on getting a pet, but made the decision to rescue Andie and haven't looked back.
Andie was the first pet they ever had together, and they became "cat people" pretty much overnight. Wilfie joined this happy cat fam shortly after, and the cat obsession only got stronger. But they noticed a serious lack of products and companies geared exclusively towards cats, and wanted to change that:
"We are on a mission to help people realize that cats aren't "easy" because they sleep all day. Cats need enrichment and playtime to live happy and healthy lives. Going safely beyond the great indoors with our Travel Cat gear is one way to do that. From backyard exploring to hiking in national parks and everything in between, we're here to support your journey."
