Now that the cat is out of the bag, let the feline explore. That is what June 15th’s Take Your Cat on an Adventure Day is all about.

Purina Pro Plan and Adventure Cats have teamed up to create this special day to demolish the stereotypes that house cats only enjoy the indoors.

Just like dogs, many felines find some time outside to be exciting and invigorating. It’s a great place for them to let out their inner big cat and be comfortable in new surroundings.

The key word is safety. To ensure everyone enjoys this new holiday comfortably, Purina Pro Plan and Adventure Cats have developed guides on how to introduce your cat to leash walking, road tripping, even camping.

If you take your cat for a test drive outside and she gives it two non-opposable thumbs way down, don’t worry. Much like people, there are some cats who just prefer the homebody life. These kitties can still get in the adventure cat spirit by enjoying indoor toys that unleash their natural instincts.

So on June 15th, pack a picnic for you and your pussycat and go exploring — even if it is just in your own living room. Make sure to share your adventures on social media with the hashtag #MyGreatCat as a way to inspire other kitty owners and for a chance to win a year’s supply of Purina Pro Plan cat food.
