Meet the fearless feline that has been described as behaving “more like a dog” and who relishes the opportunity to go on thrilling bike journeys with his human companion.
Phaku follows his owner Kyle Kana’iaupuni Robertson on his bike and even rides on his owner’s shoulder as they go on their excursions. Phaku is owned by Robertson.
The customized lead that Kyle, age 31, uses to walk his Russian-Blue tabby, who is now 13 months old, “never leaves his side,” according to Kyle.
During the epidemic, the government employee was relocated from London to Sheffield, and he took his traveling buddy with him.
At that moment, he started using a specialized harness to lead Phaku, who was also often referred to as P, on walks to the nearby park.
Soon after that, the two of them started going on trekking trips in the Peak District, and at this point, they’ve completed 15 of these trips together.
Kyle is in the process of making preparations for a camping trip with his feline friend.
According to Kyle, “He’s not like a well-trained dog; instead, he’s more of a buddy than anything else.” However, as the weather begins to improve, we are going to make plans to see him in the Peak District for a few nights.
Kyle claimed to have fallen in love with P after seeing him at his breeder’s house after spending the previous five years living in London.
“When I got to the home to pick him up, all of the other kittens were scurrying away under the couches,” he recalled thinking to himself. “When I went to the house to pick him up.”
“But he leapt out and attacked my foot, and then he moved across the room, and I had the sensation that he knew he was the one I was going to take home with me,” the woman said. “But he was the one I was going to take home with me.”
Within the comfort of Kyle’s own home, P was first fitted with a harness so that it could acquire acclimated to the feeling of wearing one. Not long after that, the two took their first steps together as a pair outdoors.
“I began by placing a harness on him for one minute, then for five minutes, and simultaneously giving him goodies,” he recalls. “I did this until he became comfortable with the harness.”
“When I took him out for the first few times in the garden, he was more interested in what was going on around him than he was in the process of removing the harness,” I said.
“Then I recalled that there is a dog-free area in the park near my home, so I decided to simply take him there in his carrier, open it up, and wait by it to see if he wanted to come out.” “Then I remembered that there is a dog-free area in the park near my house.”
As P got more familiar with his surroundings, Kyle started taking him on hikes around the area.
“We instantly proceeded from the park to the Peak District,” he adds. “We were in the Peak District in no time at all.”
It’s not like going on a walk with a dog or anything like that; it’s more about him having joy than anything else. He will walk with you as well, but at his own leisurely pace rather than yours.
I just just removed the clip that was holding him to the lead, and he now simply follows along with me, sometimes taking the lead. When he did it for the first time, I wasn’t sure whether it was a good idea, so I simply stopped what I was doing and waited.
“He just turned around and began chirping at me while yelling, “Come on!” so I was like, “great!”
