Awwinspiring Cat Travels The World With Its Owner

Former rugby player, Dean Nicholson, got tired of his day to day life and decided to go on a trip around the world, hoping for a change. What he got on top of that was an adorable kitty cat, who he named Nala, for a travel buddy. 

He told BBC that as he was cycling up a large hill into Montenegro, he "heard a wee cat miaowing from behind me. She was chasing me up the hill. So I stopped and pulled over and she just wouldn't leave my side. I put her on the front of my bike and got her comfy to take her into the next town. I went to find out if she was microchipped," adding that "she wasn't and she climbed up on my shoulder and fell asleep and I just thought that was it, she was coming with me on this tour."

Dean said that Nala changed him as a person, saying: "She has taught me just to slow down and enjoy life a lot more. Having her on the bike her needs come first and it slowed the tour down and now we stop and play a lot. If there's woods we stop and play and she loves running on the beach." He had to organize a pet passport for her, and together, they have covered about 10,000 miles.

Everywhere they are, the pair attract attention, and we're not surprised at all. We would probably be just as in awe as the rest of the local people if we saw Nala riding on Dean's bike or shoulder. One of the locals has apparently even given Dean a free beer as a result of the kitten on his shoulder, which we think is entirely justified and adorable. 

"We are going to spend winter in Greece working at some animal sanctuaries," Dean said. "Then through Russia in the spring and on to Thailand. I want that whole dream of sitting on the beach - with a coconut." We hope that his dream comes true and also that he doesn't forget to give Nala her own little coconut filled with delicious wet cat food. 

Check out their pictures together bellow, and you can visit their Instagramand YouTubechannel as well.

This is incredible! How we wish we can do something like this with our cat! 

This duo, dubbed the "cutest couple," is traveling across China enjoying the beach, sunsets, and taking in the gorgeous scenery all around. This cat is living its best life and we're not jealous. Not even a little bit. 

Duoduo, the 1-year-old-cat, accompanies his owner Xiaojie everywhere. And when we say everywhere, we mean it. Also, we're about 103% sure this cat was a human in its past life. Just watch the video and you'll understand where we're coming from. 

Their bond and moments together are pure magic. Get ready to fall in love and not be jealous.

A New Way To Meet Animals: Airbnb Launches "Animal Experiences" As a Fun Travel Subcategory

Life's better with animals—and now there's a new way to meet them!

In an effort to offer consumers a more complete travel experience, Airbnb has expanded its Airbnb Experiences platform to include a new subcategory called 'Airbnb Animal Experiences.' Just as the name suggests, these are immersive travel experiences that involve all types of animals.

Airbnb Animal Experiences is a new branch of the Airbnb platform that lets travelers choose from more than 1,000 different animal-oriented experiences. The experiences are hosted in locations around the world and feature all different kinds of animals. 

Airbnb sets a new standard for animal tourism -  All of the experiences were created with the animal's welfare in mind according to a new animal welfare policy created in collaboration with World Animal Protection. As Airbnb explains: "Airbnb Animal Experiences are hosted by caring experts as an antidote to typical tourist attractions that are notorious for ethical concerns. You will never find an Airbnb Experience where you can kiss a dolphin or ride an elephant."

Here are some exotic examples from their website.

No More Snakes On A Plane: New Rules For Emotional Support Animals

Picture this: you're walking down the aisle in an airplane and when you find your seat, there's a turkey sitting next to it. Or a pig. Or a monkey. It sounds like a comedy routine, but it isn't. In the past few years, there has been an unprecedented rise in people having 'emotional support animals', particularly when traveling on airplanes. While any step towards improving mental health is applauded, there have been many incidents involving emotional support animals on airplanes that really don't belong there. We can't blame these untrained animals for acting the way animals act, but we can question the laws that allow them on board. With new regulations from the US Department of Transport, things are about to change. We discuss these changes below, and whether they are for the better or the worse.
