"Ever since she was a kitten, I've taken her on walks to various places like the beach and picnics in Golden Gate Park, back when we lived in San Francisco," shared Travis with We Love Cats and Kittens. 

But his first thought wasn't to get a kitty stroller so she could adventure further afield.

During the pandemic, Travis found solace in cycling and decided to bring Sigrid along one day.

Much to his delight, she immediately embraced the experience with great enthusiasm.

 She enjoys gazing out of windows, indulging in numerous naps, and even kneading her dad's beard to create a couple of homemade biscuits.

Travis explains that Sigrid isn't particularly fond of large meals like some cats and prefers to graze on dry food throughout the day.

As a kitten, Sigrid would engage in playful confrontations with her reflection, engaging in a friendly rivalry with the persistent white kitty that seemed to appear in every mirror.
