Pepin, being a seasoned explorer, is always eager to live life on the edge, fearlessly curious about every new discovery.

Even though his humans are devoted to his safety and well-being, they sometimes find themselves a little worried about his adventurous spirit.

On one occasion, a spirited debate ensued when they camped near a massive cliff, and Pepin couldn't resist investigating the rocky slope.

Concerned for his safety, Alice and JS made the tough decision to place him on a leash temporarily.

"My cat was roaming free but was way too curious about the big drop, so I had no other choice to put him on a leash, even if he was very upset and still wanted to explore," shared Alice.

Pepin, being the vocal and expressive cat that he is, tried to protest with his loudest meows.

Alice gently reminded him that it was for his own good.

This was a new experience for Pepin, as he typically enjoys the freedom of exploring under his mom's watchful eye.

However, his humans knew that sometimes, even the most intrepid explorers need a gentle reminder about safety.

They lovingly referred to this situation as "cat jail" after posting a video on social media - humorously acknowledging the seriousness of their decision while recognizing the importance of safeguarding Pepin's well-being.

The TikTok video soon went viral and has been liked over 1.5 million times with over 3000 comments.

"I know my cat and that he would not have jumped but he loves to explore rocks and was looking for a way to climb down on the cliff," explained Alice.

Like all great adventurers, Pepin eventually learned that safety should always come first, even if it means being on a leash at times.
