Thomas decided to build his very own ‘KittyKart’ and cycle with his two cats Cheesy and Mushi to London to launch his brand.
The trek was 300 miles long and took 3 days to complete but don’t fret as Thomas had another van to accompany him on his trip in case the weather got bad or he couldn’t make it up a steep hills. He also brought along his cats vet to make sure they were supper happy on their long journey.
Thomas told MailOnline, “Most people were really enthusiastic and when they got closer and saw the cats they would say ‘Oh, wow’.”
