Suki is a gorgeous bengal cat who is always up for an adventure! Suki’s paw-rents took her home as a kitty in March 2017 and since then Suki’s taken them on more adventures than they’ve ever experienced before! Suki has a bold spirit and you’ll often find her hiking through lush furr-ests, set against majestic meoewtains, or enjoying a cozy campfire. Suki has over 1.4 million Instagram followers and we’re especially thrilled that Suki and her paw-rents are Alberta-based, but with global reach. 

Emcee Hunter Cardinal will interview Suki and her pawrent Marti to learn all about Suki’s story, how she started adventuring, and how cat lovers around the world fell in love with this adventure cat.
