Most cats can only experience the great outdoors through a window... or so you might think. But as the amazing stories and photographs featured on attest, cats can and do venture outside--hiking, skiing, surfing, climbing, and exploring the world alongside their owners. To celebrate these remarkable felines, and to help cat lovers turn their own indoor mouse-hunters into rugged (or at least curious) trail kitties, Laura Moss--outdoor enthusiast, cat owner, and cofounder of created the ultimate wilderness guide.

Covering everything from picking out the right harness, to packing smart, to dealing with tricky terrain and inclement weather, the illustrated how-to text will be complemented by 10 to 15 "Cat Tales"--uplifting stories and beautiful photographs profiling the extraordinary cats already living on the wild side, like Nanakuli, the one-eyed kitty found malnourished on the street who is now a surfing pro. Part wilderness manual, part inspirational gift, Adventure Cats will appeal to all cat lovers, whether they plan on braving the wild with their kitty or not.

This is a wonderful book about enlarging your cat's world. I tried the leash on my cat but she was having none of it. If I had had some of these tips I might have had better luck and will keep this book in mind when I get a younger cat. It also was fun hearing about the parts of the world these adventurers went to. So good for cat lovers and adventure lovers both!

I quite enjoyed this book. I learned a lot about cat behavior - particularly when harnessing them up and taking them on trips in the car to various places. Our most-recent cat is an adventure cat of sorts. We have her harnessed up and take her for walks and up to the lake in the summer. It's not quite as exotic or adventurous as the cats in the book but she likes her little outings.
