Noxie: Did you know that the first few times I put on a harness, I flopped over and refused to move? But after a few goes, I got used to it. What made me love it more is when I realised that harness = exploring outside. And then it made me so happy that I started coming out of my shell more all the time. Now I love playing with Lumos, Muummy & Daddy and I'm always showing everyone how much I love them! And its super funny, because Mummy & Daddy now talk to more people! You see, If you walk down a street with a cat in a backpack, people stop. Some people stare. Some laugh. Others stare in amazement. And the cat lovers? They approach you. They say hi and ask about your cat. They tell you about their cat. Many times, they ask about the training involved in catexploring. At first, Mummy & Daddy used to get scared of these moments. But it has now forced them to become more comfortable talking to strangers. And the best bit? We all leave these conversations happy. Happy that we have made someone elseโ€™s day. And sometimes, we leave excited, because we've have inspired someone else to be a catexplorer too. . @catexplorer.community would love to hear the happy surprises you have found from catexploring with your cat.

Lumos: Has something super simple ever scared you? Yesterday Noxie and I had the zoomsies and Noxie managed to crumple the bath mat. Afterwards I was sniffing it to see if I could fix it and then out of nowhere it moved! I jumped so high and sprinted away! Mummy came running after me, hugged me and kept saying "I'm sorry" and "it's ok". Then I realised it! Mummy snuck up behind me and moved the mat! Mummy!! How dare you scare me!! But then I spent the day snuggling her because I was scared. #cuddlebearlumos #theadventuresoflumosandnox #catexplorer #catexplorergoodies
Lumos: Do you struggle with FOMO? I really do. Yesterday I was so comfy in my pouch, purring and cuddling myself. Then I heard it, Noxie zoomsing upstairs, parkouring off the wall. I perked up to listen harder. Then, Mummy ran up to play with her, throwing toys and I could hear Noxie jumping high. I couldn't stand it anymore. I may have been super comfy, but I had to join in! I ran up the stairs. And joined in on the fun! #cuddlebearlumos #theadventuresoflumosandnox #catexplorer
Lumos: Are you super clever? I have to admit, I wasn't always very clever. I was trying to be a little naughty here but I didn't know how to. Noxie clearly didn't care! ๐Ÿ˜น๐Ÿ˜น ๐Ÿ”Š To hear Mummy tell me off ๐Ÿ˜น #throwbackthursday #cuddlebearlumos #theadventuresoflumosandnox #catexplorer
Noxie: Do you sometimes need your human's to help you? I do! I used to accidentally sit on my backpack and then need Mummy to show me how to get in properly. But now I have my very own Apollo Backpack and I don't have that problem anymore! #cheekygymnastnoxie #theadventuresoflumosandnox #catexplorer
Noxie: How do you like to fall asleep? I have a special talent! If I am feeling cuddly & comfy, I fall asleep standing up! I've been feeling a little cold this winter so Mummy popped into @bigwaustralia to look for beds for me. She picked this cuddly one which is warm and has the purrfect amount of cuddliness to make biscuits in. I even fell asleep standing up in it! And to make it even better she picked up some other toys so that we can play with them when I'm done napping! I'm so excited to go through all of them! #cheekygymnastnoxie #theadventuresoflumosandnox #catexplorer . #bigwaustralia #bigwpets #collab
Lumos: Are you a pastry chef? Yesterday Mummy and Daddy were making pizza on pastry, but they didn't tell me! There was pastry all over the kitchen bench but I didn't know! I jumped up and had a huge shock, what was this weird thing? Why did I slide? Why did it feel funny? I jumped off and ran away upstairs. Then 2 minutes later I did it again. ๐Ÿ˜น #cuddlebearlumos #theadventuresoflumosandnox #catexplorer
Noxie: Aren't drawstrings just magnificent? I love washing day, I get to do gymnastics all over the washing lines. And then I get to play with all the drawstrings. I bite them, I pull them, I take them out of the pants. They all have bite marks now ๐Ÿ˜น #cheekygymnastnoxie #theadventuresoflumosandnox #catexplorer
Lumos: What do you do if someone is sitting in your spot? Yesterday Mummy was sitting on the couch. She was on my crack in the couch and for a while I stood next to her suggesting she move. But she didn't! So I sat on her lap and refused to move when she needed to pee. That was my revenge ๐Ÿ˜น #cuddlebearlumos #theadventuresoflumosandnox #catexplorer
Noxie: Are you forever looking after your humans and your siblings? Gosh mine have never been able to do anything without me! Lumos always needs me to clean him! ๐Ÿ˜น #cheekygymnastnoxie #cuddlebearlumos #theadventuresoflumosandnox #catexplorer
Lumos: Do you protect your humans? Yesterday Daddy was travelling for work. So it was my job to be the man of the house. To protect Mummy and Noxie. Everytime I heard a noise, I fluffed up and ran towards it to tell it to get lost. The kettle, the doorbell, the TV. Everything. I even protected them from the shower! I was so brave! But then when I thought no one was looking, I sat on the kitchen bench and waited for Daddy to come home. I counted down the hours. I might be brave, but I was so glad when Daddy came home to protect me. #cuddlebearlumos #theadventuresoflumosandnox #catexplorer
Noxie: How do you celebrate things? It's our 2nd adoptionversary today! โ™ฅ๏ธ Guess what we were doing 2 years ago?! We were meeting Mummy and Daddy for the first time and drove home to Sydney from Canberra! Mummy says to celebrate our 2nd adoptionversary, this weekend we're going to do the @rspcamillionpawswalk to help stop animal cruelty and find homes for shelter animals. It's the puuurrrfect way to celebrate our adoptionversary. .

Lumos: Have you discovered dishwashing racks? Noxie loves chewing ours but I've learnt that I love trying to pull ours apart. Every night, after Daddy puts the dishes away, I sit there using my paw and nose to pull it apart. I've only just slightly taken it apart but I will keep trying! #cuddlebearlumos #theadventuresoflumosandnox #catexplorer
Noxie: What are your nicknames? Recently I've been given a new one - Shadow! Lumos and Noxie's Mummy: Before we started catexploring, Noxie was pretty independent & alof but catexploring has brought out a new side of her. She loves cuddling us now, purring and she is our little shadow. She follows us everywhere and loves sleeping on our laps. She hates it if we're in a room without her. It's been incredible to see this part of her personality come out. I love it, except when she is showing us how much she loves us by using the computer keyboard as a pillow & deleting things from the @catexplorer.community website. ๐Ÿ˜น๐Ÿ˜น #cheekygymnastnoxie #theadventuresoflumosandnox #catexplorer
Lumos: Arenโ€™t wand toys the best?? I just love my new Meow & Me wand toy from @petstock_australia ! It has a hummingbird soft toy on it, with feathers and a bell! I also love seeing it because it means play time with Mummy & Daddy! . #petstockaustralia #CATstock19 #ad . #cheekygymnastnoxie #theadventuresoflumosandnox #catexplorer
Lumos: How do you remind your humans to take a break? Sometimes Mummy can forget to have lunch. So everyday at 12.15 I start meowing from downstairs. I run upstairs while meowing constantly. Sometimes she'll stop working then. But when she doesn't I jump on the table and purr and then sit in between her and the keyboard. Because I'm so big she's forced to go have lunch. #cuddlebearlumos #theadventuresoflumosandnox #catexplorer
Lumos: Do you have to do anything before you get your dinner? We have to beg first. As a kitten I was so good at it but Noxie really wasn't. ๐Ÿ˜น ๐Ÿ”Š For my kitten meows #cuddlebearlumos #cheekygymnastnoxie #theadventuresoflumosandnox #catexplorer
Lumos: Do you like to jump for no reason? I tell Mummy that I jump at this canvas for no reason, but really it's because I don't like that there is another cat on the photo! #cuddlebearlumos #theadventuresoflumosandnox #catexplorer
Noxie: Did you know that every time we go on holiday, we take a mini scratching post with us? Why? So that we feel more at home wherever we stay. And the Air BnB hosts feel more comfortable when Mummy tells them that we are bringing a scratching pole along, because it shows that we wonโ€™t scratch their furniture! We found this awesome Meow & Me scratching pole at @petstock_australia. Mummy & Daddy are happy because it is light and fits in the car. Iโ€™m happy because it also has these awesome feathers on it! Canโ€™t wait to play with them! #petstockaustralia #CATstock19 #ad . #cheekygymnastnoxie #theadventuresoflumosandnox #catexplorer
Noxie: Have you ever embarrassed yourself? I'm so embarrassed! Last night we were in the courtyard and I realised that Mummy went inside. So I decided I wanted to follow her so I sprinted to the door... Then BANG! I ran into the fly screen door! Daddy stood there laughing at me. I was so embarrassed! #cheekygymnastnoxie #theadventuresoflumosandnox #catexplorer
