Simon the super cat hikes, bikes, and rafts

By Jill Dando News

Simon the super cat is a moody like no other.

JJ Yosh told Good Morning America that on the first day he got Simon, the two went on a hike, with the cat perched on his shoulder.

This became their daily ritual, with Simon “along for the ride,” Yosh said. “That’s how he became known as Backpacking Kitty.”


Followers on social media get to see Simon and Yosh as they go biking, rafting, and exploring in the great outdoors.

Simon can often be found climbing rocks, frolicking through fields, and even swimming with a tiny life vest. “Cats are the most amazing creatures,” Yosh told GMA, and Simon helps him “just enjoy the moment and really appreciate the now.”
