Guy Biking Across the World Picks Up a Stray Kitty

Last edited Fri Jul 24, 2020, 04:30 PM - Edit history (1)




For months now I've been totally hooked on this Scottish guy's "cycling the globe" channel.

Along the way, he found & adopted the cutest stray kitten who turns into quite a traveling buddy. Dean has a whole channel of his travel videos. An example...




His website: https://1bike1world.com

Edit to include this info:


Hi All, Iím Dean! On the 1st September 2018 I left Dunbar, Scotland with the ambition to cycle the world. 3 months and 9 countries later I was coming up to the Bosnia-Montenegro border when I heard a little kitten meowing her heart out, chasing me trying to get my attention. We were 12 miles from the nearest town, and it was soon clear by her friendly nature and desperate hunger her owner had intentionally dumped her.

Over the next coming days the kitten and I grew closer, It was clear she had lioness traits, with her feisty and loving personality and so it was Nala was to be her name. Following a trip to the vet I finally became her owner as she had previously not been registered. From then on it was set, Nala was to be my new travel companion, riding up front with the world ahead of her.

4. You're most welcome.

Both he and his kitty are so likeable.

In one video he found a sick stray little pup & off they went to a local vet. He paid for puppy's treatment & located a shelter to take it in.

Such a kind person!
(He's my son's age who, coincidentally, backpacked Scotland for 11days last summer.)

8. That's my descent. I've never been there. I was driving up from

Wales some years ago, but it was getting too later in the day to continue on to Scotland.

11. We got as far as the North York Moors.

After spending a lot of time in the city of York (what a surprising city it was too), we spent the night at a farmhouse bed & breakfast somewhere near the Moors. Night caught us driving around on those scary, steep cliffs!

Anyone who travels to the north of England should take time to visit the hugely large & impressive York Cathedral. This atheist was impressed by the architecture.

7. Wonderful! I love it when guys are into cats.

Nala is such a love with a big personality. She has softened his heart and he is better for it. I'm so glad they found each other.
Thanks for posting!

10. I think I'm in love with Dean and Nala.

That was absolutely precious! Thank goodness he came along when he did to rescue that little kitty.

I can't believe how well that cat has adapted to a bicycle. When she was fully grown, and sitting on his shoulder as they're going down the road, it reminded me of when dogs put their head out the windows of cars. But every cat I have ever known absolutely hates the car!

13. Aww, glad you're enjoying his YouTube channel.

Regarding kitties riding: My Mr. Silver, a blue pt Siamese, loved to ride. He & our young Lab took to each other immediately, so most everywhere I took her in the car, he came too.

The trick, I think, with many kitties is you must exposed them to things at a very young age. Unfortunately, I don't think it works with all of kitties.

Besides Nala being introduced to biking so young, her & Dean's personalities just seem to mesh so amazingly well.

Isn't it a "trip" watching them?!
