Each month, Trailblazers hosts a themed activity or “challenge,” carefully designed to provide you and your cat new enrichment opportunities and to help you reach your goals. From exploring cat-friendly destinations to mastering clicker training skills, embarking on scavenger hunts to acclimating your cat to water – you have a wide range of exciting adventures to choose from!
You also have the opportunity to earn badges for your accomplishments, such as the Training Champ, Conqueror, Cooperative Care, and Active & Agile badges.

What Trailblazers are saying:
The Trailblazers community has helped me strengthen the bond with my kitties, even the ones that don’t “adventure.” The support and advice from all of the members has become something that I look forward to. This group is a support system with the common goal of enriching our kitties lives, while helping each other reach our goals.

Trailblazers is the supportive community of adventure cats (and their humans) we’ve been looking for! It’s so encouraging to know that there are people enriching their cats’ lives (indoors and outdoors) all over the world. We enjoy traveling with our cat, and it’s such a helpful resource to have quality information and connections like this from so many different places. Everyone is so caring and happy to share their experiences, and it’s nice to break free from the constraints of social media for a change.

Joining this community was definitely a win for Jonathan, Fuchur and me. They are therapy cats, which is also a quite new field and so we are very happy to have found other people who believe in cats. Who believe cats can do more than stay at home. It is great to have someone to ask questions to, or to share experiences and achievements! And the challenges bring in the fun and motivation. Thank you for making us grow beyond us!

Being fairly new to cat adventuring, Emily and the KittyCatGO Trailblazers community have been an invaluable resource and so very supportive! The community and the challenges give me incentive to get out with my cats, which I always enjoy but would more than likely procrastinate on accomplishing if it wasn’t for the challenges! I’m never made to feel like I’m not doing enough or that my cats aren’t talented or adventurous enough, and I love cheering on others in the community and the sharing of photos, experiences, suggestions, accessories etc is also a valuable part of this community.

Friday and I didn’t quite know what to expect when we joined. We were a little bit nervous because we didn’t know terribly much about adventuring yet. What we found was an amazing, supportive community where we’ve learned so much and expanded Friday’s horizons into a bigger outside world than ever before. Encouraging, educational, and exciting!

Joining this community has been great for both Kiki and me! Kiki has gained so many new forms of enrichment, and she seems happier for it. And as a busy graduate student who didn’t often feel motivation to do things outside of school work, this has really gotten me to do more things as well. Being a part of this community has improved both of our mental health!
Lauren & KikiUSA
We love the KittyCatGO Trailblazers community. It is a wonderful resource of training tips and ideas that help deepen the relationship to our cats and make outdoor adventures safer. If it wasn’t for the adventure challenges, we might be more hesitant to try different walks or change our routines. Really, it challenges both Sylvia and me to try new things and get out of our comfort zone while also reminding us to go at our own pace. We are grateful for all the support of our friends here and love cheering on their adventures, seeing their photos, learning from their experiences, and listening to their advice. It’s an amazing community that supports the well-being of our little kitchen tigers and encourages them to have the most fun possible.

“I want to recognize KittyCatGO Trailblazers as a forum where we can share ongoing challenges and see the progress over the months of the stops and starts, the wins and failures, where we can all share what’s working and what’s not so that we can come together as a community… and bring the best to our cats.”
Terri & AdamiUSA
“I’ve really enjoyed being a part of the KittyCatGO Trailblazers community, it has been fun getting to know other cats and their parents and learning from everyone’s experiences. It has also challenged me to try new things for adventures. How do I know my cat loves it, when I get the chirpy purrs and her little happy jump when we’re exploring.”
Robin & GuinnevereUSA
“I love having a community who understands the challenges and rewards of leash training your cats. Before I found this group I was struggling to find content or information on cat enrichment other than the very experienced adventurers. This group has cats at all levels of adventure experience.”
Wanda & ReeseUSA
“A great community of cat lovers who discuss, share and learn about taking their cats on adventures. It is a fun group with challenges that intend to motivate adventures, helpful discussions and lots of support.”
