Please do not take your kitten hiking till it is fully grown.
That is why our National Parks have the no kitten sign (cats are OK)
The Australian Veterinary Association recommends not to fit a cat with a backpack till it is at least 14 months old.
BTW, get the brightest bandanna you can find so that you can spot your feline when he is off for a comfort stop.

Hiking in pairs is recommended for kittens in coyote country.

More relevant now than ever... on 06/23/2015 11:58:12 MDT Print View

Dude, I totally missed this back in 2013. I think its way more relevant now than ever. Have you seen their recent emails? Jeeze.

They're really starting to look dumb.

This must mean that sales of outdoor gear are down? They are reaching for new areas of growth I presume?
