There’s nothing like a little brother to make an adventure exciting! That much was clear when the Adventure Cats crew met up with Alyse Avery and two of her cats for a sunny hike in north Georgia.
From the moment Shade the crag kitty peeked her head out of her carrier, we knew we were in for a fun afternoon.
As soon as the leash was on, little Simba took off at a steady pace, and we scrambled to keep up.
With a glance back at mom, Shade was ready to go, too.
It was immediately clear that these two cats get along well even though they hadn’t known each other very long.
Avery had adopted Simba only a few months ago, not long after her ginger cat, Noaa, passed away.
“Noaa was so beautiful and spunky that I could not imagine another day without an orange tabby cat,” Avery told Adventure Cats. “I found someone on Craigslist who was rehoming their 7-month-old orange tabby mix. We picked Simba up and brought him home, and we could not picture our lives without him now. He and Shade love each other and have paired well together.”
And during our adventure, we saw firsthand that these two feline siblings not only love each other — they also love to explore.
But before long, it was time for a rest.
Break time is an opportune moment for a grooming session.
With so much sunshine, these cats needed to stay hydrated.
When resting time is over, it was time to head back.
Another adventure in the books – and one of many more to come for these siblings!
