Now that's a wild cat: The incredible pictures of Burma the feline adventurer who spent two years scaling America's most iconic peaks (and became a social media star along the way)

This feline has gone places most humans can only dream of.

Instagram-famous, Burma the cat, has spent two and a half years scaling some of America's most iconic peaks alongside owner Stephen Simmons and dog companion, Puppi.

The two-year-old cat has racked up a huge 26,000 followers on social media during his adventures through snow, wind and rain. Simmons, who lives in Oregon, USA, revealed Burma has been interested in mountaineering since a very young age.

Stephen, 49, adopted eight-week-old Burma from a homeless woman during the winter months of 2013. He carried the cat on a short walk into the forest before setting him - where surprisingly, the moggy appeared extremely comfortable.

Since then, the pair - along with Puppi - have documented their travels from peaks in California and Oregon to across the East Coast. Burma has even paid a visit to Central Park.
