Hiking in the Colorado Rockies would probably not be most cats’ definition of a good time, but Paul, a 9-pound apartment cat, loves to hike and go camping. Last month, he accomplished something pretty amazing: he scaled 14,000 foot high Gray’s Peak with his guardians Russ and Andrea McMillen. The couple took Paul in when he was eight weeks old. He was the lone survivor of a litter of kittens born behind a warehouse. They leash trained him and taught him to respond to whistle commands. For more about this adventurous feline, read the full story on 9News Colorado.

Have a great weekend!
