      Have you gone camping with your cat? If so, how do you present the cat from clawing or biting the tent and putting holes in it?

      It’s always better to have a friend. My aunts cat (rip) used to be my nanny cat, she lived with my family because my aunt used to live in an apartment. Yes, she would help keep me out of trouble and even teach me how to hunt and sneak around like I was her own kitten, since she had none of her own. I actually used the hunting skills she taught me in a variety of human/nonhuman things, and when I was 6 I ended catching a live mouse, and I kept it alive, I showed the cat first and she just looked at me with the biggest kitty grin on her face, then I showed my mom and she just screamed, then the cat put a paw over her mouth to shush her. 😂 One of my greatest achievements was making that cat proud to be my third mom. (I have mom, grandma, and cat)

    27. Dean Bliek

      He should be in a glass BAL with a plant inside and grass and air and then you can snorkel with him

    28. Nicholas Braun

      3:07 "Cause he loves fish..." Bruh has no clue that cat wants nothing but to inhale them.

    46. Bea Taylor

    56. benjovi55

      I like black cats. They are fun, funny, have rhythm, and are playful. Just wish they weren't always stealing from my neighbors. Gotta have things locked down.

    57. Quijybo Janklebits

      My cat does the same stuff he sits on my shoulder when I mtb and camp.

      1. Quijybo Janklebits

    59. Upackglitch somewone

    60. The Hooeys

      I was watching with a grin on my face till the cat jumped in the water and started swimming. Then my jaw fell to the floor! What was that?!!!!!!!!!!!!! Where did you get Simon? From a SWAT training facility? You're cat is a Marines!

    62. Laura Abacaxi

      Who would dislike this? Why? Who? Why?

    63. chaoticdanor

      I was really into this video until you proudly said roadtrips of 20 consecutive hours, what 20 hours? no offense but that's nothing.

    64. Love Zion

      Awesome 🔥👥🔥

    65. Redhead Knight

      Beautiful cat ♥

    66. Setu Lokavid

      the tap water made this frog gay

    67. Sharon Thompson

      I think Simon would love to hang out with “Nathan the Beach Cat” and her new younger sister Winnie. They live in Australia and they both LOVE to swim in the ocean. 😻

    68. Ebefren Revo

      Its nice to be a rich kid.

    69. Celeste Rose

      How do I slowly start doing this? Any tips anyone?

    70. run me over with your car

      I can’t believe I’m allergic to cats. Life really hates me. I still pet them when I see em anyways because how can you not?
