Cat from Gimmelwald {Switzerland}

When you book a trip to the tiny, stunning village of Gimmelwald, Switzerland, chances are you'll meet the local “mountain guide cat.” She recently made the news when a tourist got lost while he was hiking in the mountains, and the cat showed him the way back to the village. “It was the end of ski season, so the lifts weren't working and some of the trails were closed,” the hiker says. “The cat came up to me, and as she was walking she kept looking at me to follow. She led me straight to the path that would take me down to the valley. She seemed super friendly considering I was a total stranger.”

The mountain guide cat belongs to a hostel in Gimmelwald and often goes hiking with tourists. She walks ahead of hikers, pauses, and strikes a pose. She never fails to make their day.
