These Adventurous Kitties Will Make You Want To Pack Your Cat For Your Trip

Netflix

Cats, unlike their canine counterparts, are typically regarded as “indoor pets” — they’re small, lack strong defense mechanisms, and have severely inflated egos. Not a great combination when faced with coyotes in the wild.

Camping with Cats, a group of feline fanatics who strongly advocate showing the nitty-gritties to your kitties, think otherwise. They believe the great outdoors is the perfect place for your pet to be, and that they “deserve to feel the dirt beneath their paws.” But seriously, cats running wild, in the wild? We have our doubts.

We know you have a ton of questions about taking cats on trips.

#cathaiku I asked for catnip. Yet, none is given to me. Is she deaf, or dumb? #campingwithcats @secretlifeofpai

Like, what if they don’t like the dirt?

#cathaiku Jack, can you draw me? Just like one of your French cats. Wearing only fur. #campingwithcats @lasgatitasaventuras

#cathaiku I tried to be fetch. On Fridays, we wear pink, right? I can’t sit with them. #campingwithcats #meangirls @youaresally

What if they end up hating that you took them away from the comforts of the couch?

#cathaiku My death: impending. The time is now 5 a.m. I’ve yet to be fed. #campingwithcats @dragonwarrior_po

But then again, cats are some of the toughest, most badass creatures there are.

#cathaiku Complete destruction. My foes: eliminated. No one to stop me. #campingwithcats @ganddygram

They weren’t worshipped by ancient Egyptians for nothing.

Your cat could probably cover the same distance as you, and not break a sweat.

#cathaiku Human, what are those? Your shoes are idiotic. Did you pack cat treats? #campingwithcats @boltandkeel

And if they get tired, they could just hitch a ride in your backpack!

#cathaiku Keep moving human You only live to serve me. Fetch me some water. #campingwithcats @nonaintricat

But some of them need the exercise, TBH.

#cathaiku Exhaustion plagues me. I hunted 3 mice today. Human did not care. #campingwithcats @burmaadventurecat

Yeah, cats are an unusual sight around campsites.

#cathaiku Keep rowing, human. We must reach the shore by dusk. Lest you’re thrown over. #campingwithcats @kayvdr

But imagine what fun it would be to share this experience with your furry best friend.

#cathaiku Vexatious human. Hogs the hammock; I can’t nap. My soul is breaking. #campingwithcats @ourvieadventures

So let your cat out.

#cathaiku Most supreme outrage. Confined by leash and human. I demand freedom. #campingwithcats @belle_the_princess_cat

Let him tap into his natural animal instinct.

#cathaiku A glorious view. Atop this boulder, I perch. Time for a cat nap. #campingwithcats @siberian_skye

Let him feel the fresh breeze of unpolluted air, for once.

#cathaiku Fur so lush, perfect. Alas, it causes hair balls. A doubled-edged sword. #campingwithcats @floydthelion

Let him fill his lungs with the woodsy scent of nature.

#cathaiku Winter is no match. My nine lives remain intact. I am immortal. #campingwithcats @ai0503

Let him experience how it is to live without a roof over his head and a dedicated human to feed him any time he pleases.

#cathaiku Pawsome cat sweaters. Boundless freedom to explore. Earth: my litter box. #campingwithcats @cat_effect

Might knock some sense into him, that ungrateful turd-nut.

#cathaiku Infernal umbrage! Blazing fire of vengeance. Ran out of cat food. #campingwithcats @savigail
