Not only is she beautiful, Willow is quite the traveler and her fantastic journey which many followed on social media, continues.

Richard East headed out with his best pal, Willow, on the adventure of a lifetime shared the following:

After 658 days of travel, leaving our hometown in May 2015, this little black adventure cat has achieved what some house cats could only dream of. As of this morning we have now finally passed into South Australia after 7 months in Western Australia. This marks Willow’s official completion of visiting all 6 states and 2 territories of Australia! This is what is known in Aussie adventure cat slang as a Purrfect Eight. I would like to thank everyone who has joined us on our journey thus far and to everyone who has followed our trip on instagram and facebook. But it’s not over yet! We have no intention of stopping any time soon so rest assured that little paw prints will continue to be pressed all over this great Southern land. Happy trails – Rich ( Willow’s chauffeur, cuddle provider, and snack time attendant ).

Rich shared this wonderful video capturing just a bit of their amazing adventure.
