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 make the challenge to do more “official” by creating the KittyCatGO Adventure Challenge.
How does it work?
We’ve created a list of 50 tasks/challenges of varying difficulty level, each worth 1 point. Over the course of the next 4 weeks, participants will capture a photo or video of their cat in these different situations and/or completing the various tasks on the list*. At the end of the challenge, the cat with the most points wins.
Here are a few examples of the challenges…
- Wearing a harness
- Going on a hike
- Showing off a clicker training trick
- At the pet store
- + 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.
The challenge will run for 4 weeks, from Sunday, October 4th, 2020 through Sunday, November 1st, 2020.
What are the Rules?
- 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 #32 and #50. You can’t use one photo/video for more than two tasks.
- Tasks must be completed by the same cat. If you have multiple cats, they can all enter the challenge, but they each need to complete their own tasks.
- All tasks must have been completed since the challenge started. Using a photo/video from earlier this year doesn’t count. (Honor policy)
- All photos/video entries must be submitted by Sunday, November 1st. You may submit photos/videos as you complete them (preferred) or all at once. In your posts/emails, please specify which challenges your cat is completing.
How do I enter?
Your photo and video evidence may be posted throughout the challenge in 1 of 3 ways:
- On Instagram using the hashtag #KittyCatGOAdventureChallenge and tagging us (@kittycatchronicles)

Whichever entry method you choose, just be sure to specify which challenge numbers you are completing.
