Meet Tora, The Cat Who Loves Traveling And Has Explored The Usa Alongside Her Dad In A Truck

Meet Tora, a 4-year-old Scottish Straight cat who has a passion for traveling and discovering new places. Her dad, David Durst, is a 27-year-old trucker, and Tora serves as his trusty assistant on the road. While she can’t physically drive (being a cat and all), her qualifications are unquestionable – she’s a well-behaved and utterly adorable companion. Together, Tora and her dad have embarked on countless adventures, covering nearly all of the American states in their trusty truck.

Tora’s dad, David, faced challenges when he tried to adopt a cat at first. Adoption agencies expressed concerns about a cat living in a truck. Just as he was about to lose hope, a breeder reached out to him and shared a photo of an adorable 8-week-old kitten.

That kitten happened to be Tora, and from the moment David saw her, he knew he had discovered the ideal travel companion. The name “Tora” translates to “Tiger” in Japanese, which turned out to be a remarkably suitable moniker for his feline travel buddy.

“We got Tora when she was just eight weeks old and hit the road just three days later,” David said “She was the bravest little kitten I’ve ever seen and took to the truck instantly. She loved looking out the window and taking in all the new sights. It was an instant fit.” he continued.

Up until now, the pair has traveled to 46 out of the 50 states in America, capturing their exciting experiences on their Instagram account. Surprisingly, their account now boasts a staggering 24,100 followers and the overwhelming response Tora received on social media left David astounded. Not only did they make numerous online friends, but they also formed meaningful connections with many individuals in the real world. Tora loves to get out of the truck and explore, especially in big cities!”, said David.

“My favorite memory with Tora isn’t one of the many places we’ve been or one of the things we’ve seen together, it’s actually the first time she walked confidently on a leash. Getting a cat used to walking??? on a leash is a daunting task on its own, add in the loud sounds of a truck stop, and for some it becomes impossible,” David said about his most memorable moment with Tora. “We were at a truck stop in Zuber, Florida, three weeks into having Tora on the road and took her outside to do some daily harness training,” He continued.

As soon as Tora set foot on the ground, she wasted no time in embarking on her explorations. Dave patiently waited for a good two hours, hoping that Tora would eventually tire herself out and find a spot to rest. “That day was a big step towards all of the adventures the future held,” he said.

Tora’s litter box is located in the sleeping area of the truck cabin, and it is diligently cleaned twice a day to ensure cleanliness and hygiene. “This is the question we get asked the most by far,” joked David.

Tora and David’s incredible journey gained widespread fame, resulting in their feature in a documentary film called “Cat Daddies.” Surprisingly, little Tora has become not just a truck cat but also a movie star. “She’s been in so many new environments, met so many new people. Lots of new sounds, smells, and sights. It’s a lot on us as regular people, so I can only imagine what it’s like for her and she’s just doing so so well and we are so proud of her!” David shared on Instagram.

“We were skeptical about it [the movie] at first. It’s real and really good! We really encourage you to watch it in theaters if there is a showing near you,” said David when asked if “Cat Daddies” is real.

Superman Actor Henry Cavill Says His Pet Dog ‘Saved’ Him From Mental Health Struggles

Superman Actor Henry Cavill Says His Pet Dog ‘Saved’ Him From Mental Health Struggles

Dogs make the ideal pets since they are such devoted friends who never fail to cheer us up with their unwavering affection. People’s happiness and mental health have been shown to improve when they have dogs.

And people from various walks of life, even well-known Hollywood actors, rely on their pets for comfort. One superhero recently spoke out about the impact his beloved pet has had on his life.

Superman Actor Henry Cavill Says His Pet Dog ‘Saved’ Him From Mental Health Struggles

Henry Cavill, a British actor, is most known to fans for his roles as Superman in recent blockbuster hits Man of Steel and Justice League. Additionally, he appeared in Enola Holmes and Mission: Impossible — Fallout.

Cavill recently spoke about the friend who has given him the most support: his dog, Kal. But even “superheroes” need a little help from time to time.

The actor’s 8-year-old American Akita is well-known to fans who follow the celebrity on social media because Cavill is not reticent to post pictures of his canine companion online.

Kal was referred to as an “amazing jewel” and characterized as “half dog, part bear, part pig, and all soul” in a post from last year.

“I’ve had him since he was 10 weeks old and we have been through thick and thin together,” Cavill wrote. “We actually spend so much time together, I’m not sure who imitates who anymore!”
“He really is my best friend, we go everywhere together,” Cavill said, according to Daily Mail.

He explained that Kal had helped him immensely with his mental health: “He has saved my emotional and psychological bacon plenty of times. We have an incredibly close bond,” Cavill explained.

“He senses it when I’ve got my own stuff on, he’ll be close — he’s almost always close, but he’ll be closer.”

With a bond that closes, it’s no surprise that Cavill likes to keep his best friend around at all times — even when he’s on set.

He was there the entire time, he spent most of his time in the trailer rather than on set,” Cavill told People. “Because when he can see me but can’t get to me, he tends to start making a lot of noise. We didn’t want him running in halfway through a scene or a sword fight especially, because he would be taking people down. But he was always there.”

“He has been an absolute savior for me,” Cavill said in an interview with On Demand Entertainment. “He is a true companion and in those moments where I just need another being around but not necessarily to be putting lots of effort in that person.”

“He’s fantastic. To me, he’s very much — he’s a dog but he’s a companion. He’s a person as well.”

Puppy Brothers Comfort Each Other By Holding Paws In Shelter

Puppy Brothers Comfort Each Other By Holding Paws In Shelter

Meet Ruffles and Fritos. These adorable schnauzer-terrier hybrid puppies are part of the colorful “variety pack” their mom is raising. They are connected and have the cutest manner of communicating by holding paws together.

Sarrah Walton, a key volunteer at the Humane Society of NWLA (HSNWLA) said, “Another rescue, LA Baby Mommas reached out needing us to take them. [They] typically deal with special needs puppies, and these pups are all very healthy, so they came to stay with us at HSNWLA.”

Despite having eight other siblings between them, Fritos and Ruffles genuinely enjoy holding hands whenever the mood strikes.

“They all snuggle up closely anytime they’re resting,” according to Walton. “This was a cute moment caught on camera.”

It is difficult to tell how frequently Fritos and Ruffles hold paws, but they appear to do so to escape the noise and bustle of the shelter.

When they are not soothing one another, Fritos and Ruffles like playing with toys or relaxing on a cozy dog bed. They work together.

“The entire bunch is friendly, playful, and sweet,” according to Walton.

“Our community is blessed in that all rescues work together to save lives,” Walton added. “They will all finish their vaccinations, be microchipped and spay/neutered.”

Ruffles and Fritos will probably hold hands until then, though none of the 12-week-old puppies are ready to find their fur-ever homes.

Baby Who Was Punished For Being “Dumb” Is Too Humble To Turn Around Despite Feeling The Ground Move

Baby Who Was Punished For Being “Dumb” Is Too Humble To Turn Around Despite Feeling The Ground Move

A little puppy cannot survive on her own when she first enters the world. She is dependent on her mother to care for and feed her. Sadly, a vicious person tore this little puppy away from her mother and beat her. The dog was then abandoned with no one around to watch over her.

The young victim was bleeding heavily as she lay on the ground. More than a thousand maggots attracted to her wounds settled inside of her. They persisted in consuming her flesh. She was in dire need of a guardian angel to intervene on her behalf or the virus would claim her life.

Thank goodness, someone noticed the little dog and immediately took her to the clinic. The rescuer gave the puppy the name Lora. They didn’t think twice once Lora was at the veterinarian. She required immediate care. To adequately care for Lora’s wound, they first shaved the affected region. Once all the maggots had been removed, it was watered.

Fortunately, X-rays showed that Lora’s back legs were not fractured; nonetheless, she would require extensive physical therapy. Her wounds needed to be carefully monitored as well. An infection could still be problematic even when taking medicines. Everyone at the veterinary office was smitten with the adorable puppy. She was brave in every way.

The clinic asked a local woman whether she would be willing to be Lora’s medical foster mother. She concurred! The puppy would have a comfortable place to sleep and frequent visits to the doctor. Although this was wonderful news, the veterinarian quickly discovered that Lora is totally blind and deaf. Even though Lora was also given a liver diagnosis, nobody was ready to give up on her.

As if Lora didn’t already have enough difficulties, the veterinarian discovered that she also lacks the ability to smell. Being blind and deaf, Lora would use her sense of smell to get around. This really dealt a blow. There would be many challenges ahead for Lora but she was so loved now. And love can truly make a difference. Her medical foster mom is currently doing all she can to help Lora thrive.
