Tell us about your most memorable adventure
Our most memorable adventure is probably Mavericks first adventure.
We took him to Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs and because he still wasn’t great on the leash, we kept him in his cat backpack. We walked around for awhile until he started meowing really loudly then decided to take him out on the leash.
Mavericks immediately started sprinting towards a rock and then jumped right on top of it. He climbed up to the point that we couldn’t reach him anymore and had to get him down by bribing him with treats. He spent the next hour climbing up and down rocks (with his leash on) and that’s how I knew I had a true catexplorer on my hands.
Why did you decide to train Mavericks to be a catexplorer?
I decided to train him because being a college student and living in beautiful Colorado, I wasn’t home very much.
I knew right off the bat Mavericks was going to be a needy little guy so I decided that I was just going to take him on my adventures with me!
How did you train Mavericks?
I started putting the harness on him at a young age, about 9 weeks, just to get him used to it.
Then once he was used to it, I started putting the leash on him and taking short walks around the house and neighborhood.
What has been the most rewarding part of having a catexporer?
Having my best friend also be my adventure buddy! I never have to travel alone!
What advice would you give other humans training their catexplorers?
Be patient!! It may get frustrating while training your catexplorer but in the end it’s worth it.
Just takes time and practice!
