One of our biggest goals is to encourage people to get out there and try new things with their cat(s). Whether you’re just going out in your backyard or backpacking the Appalachian Trail, we love seeing it all — adventures both big and small. In an effort to encourage more adventuring, we thought we’d officially challenge people by creating the KittyCatGO Adventure Challenge.
Since we kicked off the first KittyCatGO Adventure Challenge last year, we’ve had close to 100 cats from around the world participate in the fun! It’s been an absolute blast, and so inspiring. You can check out what other cat adventurers have been up to by searching #kittycatgoadventurechallenge on Instagram or in our FB group.
How does it work?
We’ve created a list of 50 tasks/challenges of varying difficulty levels, each worth 1 point. You can work your way down the list in any order you wish, completing the tasks and trying new things. It’s a fun way to get ideas of new things to try with your cat.
Here are a few examples of the challenges…
- Wearing a harness
- Walking on a leash
- Going on a hike
- Learning a new clicker training trick
- Riding in a canoe
- Going camping
- + 44 more!
*Always remember to keep your cat’s safety and comfort as your top priority. Don’t force them to do something they don’t want to do or aren’t ready for.
How do I join?
Photo and video entries can be submitted in 1 of 2 ways:
- Posted in our Facebook Group
- Using #kittycatgoadventurechallenge on Instagram
Whichever entry method you choose, just be sure to specify which challenge numbers you are completing.
- One picture/video can count for up to 2 tasks. For example, if your cat has never gone hiking before, a picture or video of them hiking could count for #7 and #29. You can’t use one photo/video for more than two tasks.
- If you have multiple cats, they can each participate. However, they will need to complete their own tasks.
Will I Get a Prize?
We do have a few “official” adventure challenges that run at different points in the year. They typically last about a month, and there are prizes involved. However, we don’t have one running at the moment.
That doesn’t mean you can’t participate though! You are welcome to participate in the challenge at any time. If you complete at least 10 tasks, we will send you a KittyCatGO sticker 🙂
Keep In Mind…
There will be tasks on the list you probably can’t complete due to where you live, the weather, your cat’s adventuring abilities, etc. When we came up with the challenge list, we tried to include a wide variety of tasks of different difficulty levels that fit a wide range of situations. The point of the challenge is to have fun and find new things to try with your cat. Don’t stress because you can’t do them all
