Geography Cat is one of the finest feline geographers you could ever meet. He is super smart at geography and loves to share his passion for the world, with the world.
Little is known of his early life as he was adopted from a cat rescue facility when he was approximately 18 months old. Since then he has lived a very happy and comfortable life with his human guardians. He might be 8 years old, no-one really knows.
Geography Cat’s hobbies include snoozing, napping, sleeping, stretching, clawing the side of the sofa, rolling around on the floor, sitting on the dining table, and occasionally dashing up and down the stairs. When he is not busy with those activities he also enjoys nature documentaries, which he likes to recreate in his own garden. He is an active member of the local Neighbourhood Watch scheme and spends many hours watching out of the front, side and back windows to make sure nothing untoward occurs. He is an armchair geographer and doesn’t travel well, therefore he has employed some stunt doubles.
Official Geography Cat stunt doubles
Mike is Geography Cat’s official stunt double. He travels with Alison because Geography Cat himself is not a happy traveler. Mike enjoys holidaying, and the occasional drink. Mike’s little brother is also an official Geography Cat stunt double:
Ike is a keen traveler. His smaller size makes him purrfect for popping into a camera bag and he loves going away with Geography Cat’s followers and friends. Here’s Ike in Portugal with Charlie, and at Sunset Crater Volcano with Greg:

Alison has taught geography in secondary schools since 1995. She has worked in the UK, Colombia and New Zealand. Alison is a fellow of the Royal Geographical Society and is currently applying to become a Chartered Geographer. Alison lives in Nottingham with her partner, and is delighted to be able to assist Geography Cat in his quest to teach the world about the world.
