Owners of hiking cat say it may be

If you thought dogs were the only four-legged pets that could take on the trails, think again. Paddington, pictured above, is a cat built for adventure and the outdoors.

Paddington has logged dozens of hikes and averages about a mile per hike, with his longest hike at two and a half miles. And if the hike gets too strenuous, he just hops on his dad’s shoulders and cruises.

His parents, Bryan and Anna Wilson, got him at the Seattle Humane Society as a kitten last summer, where they instantly detected his courageous spirit and their connection. “Kittens can be cute and cuddly and just stay there, but not him, he really wanted to explore the world,” said Bryan Wilson.

Did you know he’s also famous? He has his own Facebook and Instagram where “he” documents his hiking adventures.
