A man has been travelling around with his 'perrfect' companion after he quit his job, sold his house and everything he owned to travel with his beloved cat called Willow.
Majority of us would love to spend our lives travelling, instead of a 9 to 5 job, waiting for a monthly pay or cheque, but Rich East is no longer a regular guy after he quit his job, sold his house and all his possession to travel with his cat, Willow.
It certainly took a great amount of bravery and courage to pack it all up and travel.
Rich says his cat is so chilled and loves their travel lifestyle.
Willow the cat has a tracking collar on which keeps her safe and allows Rich to keep track of her.
The track on Willow also gives Rich peace of mind because he can keep an eye on her at any time because Willow spends her time off the leash, as she is keen to explore around the camps.
Rich and Willow set on their adventure in 2015, when he left his hometown, Hobart in Tasmania.
The unusual travel pair have achieved so much together and seen some really amazing places in Rich’s campervan.
They have travelled more than 50,000 kilometres across Australia.
Briefly.co.za gathered they have sailed the Great Barrier Reef, camped up mountains in Bourketown in Queensland, all the way up to Northern Territory, and visited 6 states and two territories off Australia.
Known in Aussie adventure cat slang as ''Perrfect Eight'', they spend lots of time in forests and on beaches.
Willow and Rich have adapted to life on the road and have made it in their life.
Rich disclosed that he couldn’t have imagined travelling without Willow by his side.
‘’She’s the best travel buddy ever! She’s the cat that made his van a home and the whole of Australia her backyard,’' Rich said.
Rich says he’s so proud of his cat Willow.
