Gender: Male + Female | Paw: Cat | Power Talent: Life on the Road

Van Cat Meow is ~almost~ exactly what it says on the tin. One man, one van, and one black adventure cat named Willow, meowing around Australia and capturing hearts (and followers) along the way – quite a few of them, in fact.

The man who made it all possible is Richard East. Once a Tasmania-based corporate mortgagee crawling through the slump of daily life, Richard reached a crossroads and found himself with a choice to make – follow the pack or create his own path?

Needless to say, he chose the latter. Richard ditched his job, sold his home and took to the roads with a self-made life on wheels, and his four legged rescue cat Willow in tow.

What began as an adventure has become an entirely new way of life. Now the pair travel Australia full-time, living from their fully ‘kittied’ out campervan with only each other for company.

Follow their adventures on Instagram for daily uplifting snaps of four-legged life on the road. Richard and Willow also shared their story in a book with Harper Collins, and on their Van Cat Meow website.
