    6. Dean Bliek

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

    7. Nicholas Braun

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

    8. Marie V.

      Its a fact. You have the coolest cat

    9. Christian Sparrow

      3:28 is it just me or Simon really did nod his head to answer the question?!

    10. Leah Hulse

      The best part is he’s a black cat so u will never lose him in the snow

    11. mango

    14. Alayna Folk

      Must be something with black cats because my black cat loves car rides and out side but she hates water

    15. 254 Walt

    22. themoviereviewhunk

      This guy reminds me of that music video of Moby and his trusted dog/fox/cat thing

    23. Liv_love. 32

      I can’t imagine how it would feel for him when Simon passes away

    24. Billie Two Fegs

      So happy to find this. I wanna travel with my cat, Ozzy, and everyone tells me that she can't do it. Now I know we can.

    25. Bea Taylor

      I'd like to hear more about he and Simon got together and started doing adventures together.

    26. Crystal Tranquilino

      i love how his special talking voice for his kitty is basically pinocchio from shrek

    27. Drew Chojnowski

      the John Muir of cats.

    28. Gontrand Trand

      Try without the leash...

    29. Jess

      This is so pure I wanna cry

    30. DrgnMage2536

      That cat is living THE life! Just found your channel. Did you get Simon as a kitten? How did you get him used to traveling in the car, using a harness, getting used to hoping on you backpack, etc?

    31. Jered P

      Simon is the coolest 😎😺

    32. Ahmed abd elgaied

      i guess i know the reason of staring @ the fish tank yes of course learning how to dive with them :D

    33. Marisol Resto Vicenty

      Así yo hago con mi gato, ando con el y lo paseo. A él le gusta mucho y es una terapia para mí y mi madre por que no tenemos a mi hijo a nuestro lado.

    34. Julie K Taylor

      He really loves the fishes Next day They all have Been Thanos snapped

    35. 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.

    36. Quijybo Janklebits

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

      1. Quijybo Janklebits

        My best friend cats name is toby. He swims too but only when we kayak

    37. Jacob Mann

      Bro what would happen to this guy if his cat died. It’s dark. But it’s eventually gonna happen

    38. Upackglitch somewone

      Cats love nature.........omg

    39. 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!

    40. nekkoMaster

      My Dream

    41. Laura Abacaxi

      Who would dislike this? Why? Who? Why?

    42. 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.

    43. Love Zion

      Awesome 🔥👥🔥

    44. Redhead Knight

      Beautiful cat ♥

    45. Setu Lokavid

      the tap water made this frog gay

    46. 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. 😻

    47. Ebefren Revo

      Its nice to be a rich kid.

    48. Celeste Rose

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

    49. 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?

    50. Enzo Palma

      Can we make his goal true, get him somewhere tropical where Simon can snorkel 😭🙏🏽

    51. time2cclear

      this whole video is of you talking . we want to see the cat and less of you and your non stop blah blah blah .

    52. Som Mun

      Im cry watching this video 😭😭😭

    53. KittySnicker

      Awww he looks like my little prince, Moses!



    55. Ha-ha-ha-hapa

      Wow 20 consecutive hour road trip? So like...the weekend?

    56. 1111111111

      I used to be an adventurer like you then i took an arrow to the knee.

    57. Live Life Exotic

      Nice! Me and my cat too. He has been all over North and Central America. Plane, boat, car. 22hour straight one time lol MN to Austin TX. Car rides each way N,S,E,W in the front seat or on my lap. He looks just like this 🐈. Though he REFUSES the leash. He wants freedom. Doesnt like voluntarily swim but does like to play in shallow once break and cruise on boats and jetskis.. It took him a couple years from birth but he quickly learned to respond to our heads, warnings and directions when he’s free. His favorite spot is right on an Encinitas beach. 10 years and he is still loyal and responsive as ever. I could go on and on. Awesome video!

    58. Joe Smith III

      Be careful, there are really large, aggressive, hungry fish out there.

    59. Heyitzcece gaming

      This was so hart warming

    60. Stu Wright

      cooooooooooooooool for cats

    61. Izzy Patterson

      He loves staring at the fish becuz he wants to eat then

    62. rage against the authority

      I had a cat from a 2yo to 20. He had been shot, run over, stuck under the house for weeks half dead and just went missing for days on end. Mum told me I dressed him in cothes, cut of his whiskers and would paint him often. In my teens I took him in my bike crate to the shops and friends houses he even stoned a few times. When he died i wasn't home so my brother thought it would be a great idea to put in a concrete tomb. That was 20 years ago and I still have that cat.

    63. Rylan Cochran

      HE STARES AT THE FISH. he loves them. lmao he wants to EAT them

    64. Tanya S

      That cat has a better life than me!

    65. Bryce P

      What a wired doggieo

    66. Lia Maria

      I want a cat.

    67. Sean Lawlor

      it so cute i love it

    68. Coleman Outdoors

      DUDE...That is so awesome!! I wish I could take one of my cats on my outdoor adventures. How do you even get to that point? You really aught to consider cryo-freezing some of his DNA and when cloning becomes a thing make more Simone's. I'd buy a Simone for sure. 😋

    69. JS SimoneJanilson S2

      Que lindo esse gato ,amo os animais

    70. Jan G.

      ...beautiful cat. But its irritating that some people talk in a high pitched voice when they talk to their animal...
