Cats are born explorers, but some are more adventurous than others. For example, Gibson, the city kitten. He, his mom blogger Sara Klassen, and his family reside in Toronto, Ontario, and they’ve gone on a lot of adventures, which they’ve documented on their blog.
This daring youngster and his family have been on many adventures. He’s visited Niagara Falls and several of the city’s lovely parks and dozens of other green spots, Daily Paws reported. He’s taken buses, subways, and streetcars, among other modes of transportation. Of course, there’s mum and dad’s automobile.
Klassen tells Daily Paws, “He’s pretty much done it all in this city.” “Of course, there are more locations to explore. He’s a city kitty. He is enamored with the city of Toronto.
Klassen was going through a difficult period following the death of her former cat, Miso. When she went looking for a new feline companion, she came upon tiny Gibson, who was still a kitten at the time. He was a real dynamo, lots of energy and a lot of fun. As a result, he quickly became a member of her family.
“We sorta knew adventure was in his DNA from the time we brought him home,” Klassen adds. “He’s always looking for something to do. He’s a clever guy, therefore he has to stay busy all the time.”
And this kitten is certainly a rambunctious one. He enjoys exploring, going on walks, and accompanying his pet owners on their errands. He even enjoys being trained and is such a clever cat that he has learnt between 25 and 30 tricks and is continually learning new ones. Klassen is assisting him in learning how to do the stunts outside of the house.
Klassen adds, “I never grew up thinking cats could be trained.” “I never imagined that could happen.”
Sara has started utilizing young Aidan’s toys to help Gibson learn now that he has a new human baby sibling.
Sara makes a point. Gibson’s story demonstrates that not all cats are afraid of new experiences and that they don’t have to be kept indoors. Gibson is always wearing a harness, and while some cats dislike them (my cat Emily turned into a bucking bronco when we put one on her), they may become accustomed to them. They’re demonstrating to pet owners that cats enjoy being outside and even traveling with their people. Many pet parents, like my husband and me, have converted our front porch into a catio, which our 13 cats adore.
They discovered numerous areas to explore in Costa Rica, where we now reside, and we managed a resort where they had a ball chasing squirrels, lizards, butterflies, and birds (fortunately they never caught anything.) I miss my lovely girls. Both have now died away, but they would not change their lives for anything.
Cats may benefit from outside experiences, as demonstrated by ours and the Klassen family’s, as long as they are kept secure with a harness or in a catio.
While Aiden is the family’s newest addition, the link between cat and human is still strong.
“I think Gibson and I are better together,” Sara explains, “because I feel like we simply feed off of each other in ways I could never have anticipated.”
Gibson is a really fortunate cat. He not only has a life full of love and interesting things to do, but he is also a blessing to his family, who clearly adores him.
