Meet Tora, a curious and adventurous Scottish Straight cat who is always up for exploring new places with her owner David Durst. The dynamic duo travels around the United States in a truck, with Tora happily taking her spot in the passenger seat. At just one year old, Tora has already seen so much of the world and is always eager to see more.
From the tender age of 2 months old, Tora’s outdoor escapades began. Together with her owner, she has travelled to 43 states across the US. Their expeditions have been chronicled on Tora The Trucker Cat Instagram page, which boasts over 14,000 followers.
According to David, his quest for adopting a cat wasn’t easy as various agencies refused to give him a kitten because he lived in a truck. He almost gave up hope until a breeder sent him a picture of Tora. The moment he saw the photo, he knew deep down that he had found a perfect companion for his travels.
Tora became a part of our family when she was only eight weeks old and within three days of her arrival, we embarked on a road trip. We were pleasantly surprised by her bravery as she adjusted to the truck promptly. She enjoyed gazing out of the window, taking in all the unfamiliar surroundings and adapting effortlessly to our lifestyle. It was an instant match made in heaven.
According to David, Tora is an adventurous feline who enjoys exploring new places, particularly big cities. Whether it’s a stroll through a remote forest or an urban adventure, Tora is always up for it. Additionally, Tora’s litter box is situated in the truck’s sleeper and is cleaned twice daily. David humorously stated that this is the question they get asked the most frequently.
David is in awe of the amount of love Tora receives from social media users, prompting him to frequently share their adventures on Instagram. Together with Tora, his trusty companion, they have set a goal to travel to the five remaining continental states before the year ends.
