I just loved this story!

Kitty the Cat has to be one of the luckiest kittens in the world.

Not only was she fortunate enough to be rescued after being abandoned along a roadside in Louisiana, but a French couple, William and Laetitia, also extended an invitation for her to accompany them on an amazing three-year-long journey of 9,000 miles.

Their plan is to hike from Miami, Florida to Ushuaia, the capital of the Argentine province of Tierra del Fuego, commonly referred to as the southernmost city in the world.

William and Laetitia believe money does not buy happiness and have made this the central theme of their trek.

The trip, initiated in 2009, has given the trio the chance to interview lots of locals, comparing the lifestyles of the poor, middle class and the rich, and learning "how they live and survive."

Their expedition is shared through videos and photographs.

That is one easygoing cat. I enjoyed reading about the adventure. Might be that this cat knows somehow how lucky he is.
