Informative, yet entertaining

We’ve only recently discovered the cat explorer podcast. We adopted our kitties last year but didn’t discover the cat explorer community till this spring during quarantine, when I decided to set up a cat instagram. That is where I found the vast cat explorer world.

We love listening to the podcast in the car and learning a wide variety of things listening to everyone stories. Each episode so far has been very informative and helpful. We love hearing everyone’s top tips and recommendations from their own experiences.

We’re still at the beginning of our cat exploring journey but I truly believe if it wasn’t for the cat explorer community, on instagram, Facebook and this podcast we wouldn’t have achieved half the milestones we have in the past couple of months!

Entertaining and informative!

I recently adopted a couple of kittens and I want make sure I give them everything they need. Being indoor cats (safe from the roads and things they shouldn’t eat!) I want to make sure they still live an active, enriched and adventurous life! I discovered the Cat Explorer Instagram page and their podcast a couple of weeks ago and love listening to episodes on my morning and evening work commute. So far each episode has been very entertaining but more than that very helpful and informative! Each episode they host a different cat explorer and talk about their adventures, top tips and share their experiences in all things cats!

I’m still at the very beginning of my cat exploring journey and I have had many doubts and worries but with each episode I’ve felt easier and more confident in what I’m doing. I can’t wait to keep listening and learning!!
