Millie The Adopted Cat Is The Best Climbing Partner Ever

Meet a mountain-climbing Craig Armstrong and his perfect mountain climbing partner – his lovely cat Millie. Most cats will become timid or defensive when outdoors, but not Millie. Craig adopted Millie from the Furburbia adoption center in Utah, they immediately shares the same passion and eventually started going on adventurous climbing trips together.

The admirable climbing couple had to go through a lot of struggles and face many variances and sweet reconciliations before they came to this point. “Millie has all the qualities a good climbing partner should have. She never complains, no matter how bad it gets. She always wants to go higher, and she pushes herself hard. But she also knows when to stop.” CraigMillie has become a legend in the climbing world.

Armstrong says mountain climbing is the ideal activity for his athletic cat. But not every kitty love to climb things. “It’s taken a lot of practice and many trips to get Millie to the point where she follows me down a trail past areas like thickets that would have distracted her otherwise.” Craig said. Millie has had a lot of practice. Scroll down to see these photos about Craig Armstrong’s unique mountain-climbing partner.

“Generally she does best on slabby routes where she can scramble from ledge to ledge. She’s an incredible athlete, she does some big jumps and gaps”

“Whether she’s following me or I’m following her I generally just stay close enough to rescue her from trouble. I love that little furball, so I stay close.”

“Start slow outside: a local park was first. I’d run from tree to tree and get her to follow. This got her used to being outside and following me around”
