Say hello to Jesper the adventure cat. Jesper lives in Hedmark, Norway and has enjoyed more of the outdoors in his two and a half years on Earth than you probably have in your entire life. He swims, hunts, camps, climbs trees, bikes, rides horses, and even skis.
Well, okay, he doesn't exactly ski himself, he just runs in front of or alongside his owner while she skis. Or he makes himself comfortable on her shoulders.
Or in her backpack.
He climbs trees, and can probably even figure out to get back down by himself (the infamous Achilles' Heel of felines everywhere).
Jesper navigates the wilderness like a pro, stopping every so often to chew on branches, as one does while forging rivers.
Don't worry about Jesper falling in—even if he does, he has no problem swimming.
After all, he can always dry out in front of the campfire.
Jesper's a fan of bike rides, especially since he doesn't have to pedal. He just chills in a basket and enjoys the scenery while tending to a little bathing.
He's pretty friendly with his owner's horses, and he'll catch a ride on one of them sometimes, too.
And when he gets tired, he can just climb into his owner's backpack.
Zipped up, all warm and cozy like.
The other backpack in Jesper's life is his own, which he often wears on his adventures.
So when he goes hunting or fishing…
…he has a place to keep his catches.
Jesper's been a fan of the outdoors since he was a wee kitten.
And a fan of hitching rides since then, too.
Of course, Jesper's life isn't all about the outdoors. At the end of a long day of exploring, he goes home and curls up with his toys just like the rest of us.
