Norwegian "adventure cat" loves to ski and hike

NORWAY — A cat in Norway is making a name for himself for an unusual talent: He skis.

Jesper isn't your typical house cat.
He loves skiing, hiking and tagging along with his owner on all her adventures.
He has his own blog and has thousands of followers on Facebook.  His owners compete in several outdoor sports and decided to see if Jesper would come along.  They say he has enjoyed every challenge they've given him.

They do say skiing with a cat is not easy because sometimes he'll stop very suddenly.  Another issue is that a cat's mind is not like a dog's. If Jesper doesn't want to walk, he really doesn't want to walk. There is no discussion.  So sometimes Jesper just rides in their backpacks.
