The Wild Adventures of Two Rescued Cats
Kayleen VanderRee, Danielle Gumbley
Book cover for Bolt and Keel by Kayleen VanderRee
Stunning photographs of two adorable cats—Instagram stars—who hike, paddle, and snowshoe through the wilderness.

Two kittens were abandoned in a park. The women who found them were about to head off on a mountain trek. And the animal shelter was closed. The cats seemed game so their intrepid rescuers brought Bolt and Keel (so named) along for the adventure. It was the first of many. Kayleen VanderRee, an avid photographer, chronicled their trips on Instagram,and soon the cats’ adventures went viral. Stars were born!

Bolt and Keel invites readers to join the cats (and their humans)on a striking photographic journey through British Columbia’s beautiful forests, mountains, and rivers. With the cats sitting in the bow of a canoe, perched on Danielle’s shoulder, or navigating snowy hiking trails, Kayleen’s images and charming captions capture an exploration of the natural world that any house cat—and any cat lover or adventure seeker—would envy.
