Adventure Cat Loves Exploring The Great Outdoors

Rachel Jenkins October 19, 2017 October 19th, 2017

Simon is no ordinary kitty, not by any means. No lounging in his corner for this majestic furry friend. Nope, this adventure cat gets to travel the world along side his filmmaker and vlogging human, JJ Yosh. JJ adopted Simon when he was just a kitten and the two have been inseparable ever since.

This dynamic duo is always on the lookout for new quests, especially when it’s close to their home in Colorado. “Simon loves exploring the nearby mountains where we have caves and rocks to climb.”, JJ told People Magazine. “I want people to realize cats are just as adventurous as dogs if given the proper training.”

JJ has taken Simon on many different adventures, including kayaking, backpacking, hiking and even camping. “The fact that I am always outdoors with him definitely helps him adapt to the wilderness.” Which can account for Simon’s willingness to explore the great outdoors with his human pal. “I like camping with Simon in snow because he’s less active at night and just wants to cuddle in my sleeping bag.”

People tend to stop JJ while on adventures because they are so amazed he is hiking with a cat. “The reaction usually is amazement and surprise that I would be taking a cat into the back country.” But they doesn’t mind the stops because it allows them to meet new people and try new things. 

JJ hopes when people see him and Simon enjoying the great outdoors together that they would be compelled to explore and create their own adventures. No matter how close to home.
