2,5 Years Ago, Guy Quit His Job And Sold Everything To Travel With His Cat In A Campervan


Willow the cat and her human, Rich (read that as chauffeur, cuddle provider, and snack time attendant), have been travelling since they left their hometown of Hobart, Tasmania back in May 2015.

Rich sold everything except his feline friend, and he quit his job so they could take the trip of a lifetime together. In February 2017 they finally made it to South Australia, marking Willow’s official completion of visiting all 6 states and 2 territories of Australia a.k.a the Purrfect Eight.

“Some people think it’s odd that I’m travelling with a cat, but Willow is so chilled out and absolutely loves our new lifestyle. Willow is kept safe with a tracking collar which allows me to always know where she is”, said Rich. “She spends most of her time off the leash and is always keen to explore around our camp. With the tracking collar, I have the peace of mind that if she decides to go for a hike I will be straight onto her.”

They planned to keep the trip going. “We have well and truly settled into the travelling life and spend our days in forests and beaches just soaking it all in. Although we have almost made it back to our home state there is no sign of us stopping anytime soon,” Rich said. “We have adapted to life on the road and have made it our life now, you have to choose what makes you happy in this life and while we can keep going, why would we stop?”

Their adventures have been nothing but awesomeness, and the two can’t wait to share it with the world. They have a calendar prepared to keep you inspired every day of the year! You can find it here.

She may only be a rescue cat but this little black cat has travelled more than 50,000kms around Australia in a campervan with her owner.

“I’m so proud of Willow, she’s the cat that made my van a home and the whole of Australia her backyard. She’s the best travel buddy ever!”
