Tora The Trucker Cat Has Already Visited 43 States With Her Human

Tora (tiger in Japanese) is a one year-old Scottish Straight cat and her favorite place is a passenger seat in her owner truck. 

On her popular instagram page (followed by more than 12,000 followers), her owner, David Durst, documents their journeys across the US.   

Tora's home page explains that she started her outdoor adventures at just 2 months old. She has traveled to 43 US states and has 95,000 miles under her collar. She actually likes going to the vet, loves long car rides, enjoys pets from strangers, watches movies at drive-in theaters and often eats her dinners at restaurant patios. From large downtown cities to secluded forest walks, Tora is up for any adventure. 

Her human, David, had difficulties when he tried to adopt a cat because the agencies thought that a truck is not a good place for the kitty to live. He was ready to give up, but then a breeder sent him a photo an eight-week-old kitten. He knew right away that he had found the purr-fect travel companion: "We got Tora when she was just eight weeks old and hit the road just three days later. 'She was the bravest little kitten I've ever seen and took to the truck instantly. She loved looking out the window and taking in all the new sights. It was an instant fit.'

And if you were wondering, Tora's litter box is in the sleeper of the cab, and it is cleaned out twice daily. 'This is the question we get asked the most by far,' joked David.
