This Adventurous Cat Is Hiking In and Around Montana
If you live in Missoula and you aren't outdoorsy, I hope you have a strong sense of identity and healthy self-confidence. Why? Well, because I just found a house cat that's more athletic than me (then again, that's probably not too hard).
Meet Freya the Adventure Cat.
Yes, that is a cat hiking to the top of Mount Sentinel in Missoula. What?!
First, let's start with the name: Freya. Congrats to Freya's owner, I think this is a perfect name for such a venturesome cat. The name Freya means "noble lady" but is also the name of a Scandinavian goddess of war and love among other things. Clearly, this cat embodies the qualities of a regal being.
Freya Participates in Winter Sports
Next, let's talk about just how fearless this cat is. Recently, Freya went on a snowshoeing trip.
Freya has also gone cross-country skiing.
Last spring, Freya hiked in Blodgett Canyon. The post says that Freya put in a 10-mile day! And just a reminder, Blodgett Canyon isn't exactly a nature walk. Even this 9 mile out-and-back trail is designated as "moderately challenging." When some cats are afraid to go outside at all, it's incredible to see a cat that seems to enjoy the Montana wilderness as much as many humans do.
You might run into Freya on the trails around Missoula but Freya is a "city cat" too. Freya has been spotted at Shakespeare Books & Co. in Missoula and at Turner Farms.
This kitty has just under 500 followers on Instagram but I think Freya is going to become very popular.
