My cat didn't give up and kept following us. She didn't turn around and go home like I thought she would. I got worried that she would stop, turn around and get lost and get picked off by a coyote.
My SO was very worried. We finally turned around only half way down and went back. We carried her part of the way home.
Do you go on long walks w your cat? Does she stay w you the whole time or wander off? Have you ever lost a cat this way?
How long of a hike can a cat manage?
Best to shut kitty up in the house when you want to go for a long hike.
...and at the cottage, he even follows H onto the dock...a cat on a dock!!

When I lived in NJ, my next door neighbors cat would accompany me about 1/4 mile down the trail when I went riding, and quite often would pick me up on my way back and walk back with us. He also tried to catch the lash of my lunge whip while I was working a horse. The horses got pretty "cat proof" with him being around!

Siamese are special that way.
One of my S/O's sisters has a cat that goes on walks around the neighbourhood with her. This cat also likes to drink milk from a baby bottle, and if you hold him like a baby, he will even hold his own bottle.
