He has attended Royal Ascot, taken surfing lessons and even gone to the Madejski Stadium to cheer on his home team.
Now Mr Pinky, a 10-year-old cat from Reading, is to travel to Dorset using public transport on Wednesday - without a carrier box.
His owner, Tim "Catman" Wheeler, 44, is to accompany his feline friend.
Mr Wheeler, who is eligible for free bus travel due to ill health, said he was looking forward to the trip.
"I'll go to some lovely places," said Mr Wheeler.
"We will go to Newbury, then on to Andover and Salisbury before going on to Bournemouth and Weymouth.
"Mr Pinky is my companion animal. I sometimes put a lead on him but he normally doesn't need one."
On arrival in Dorset, Mr Wheeler is planning to see sights such as Durdle Door and Swanage.
Mr Wheeler is often seen in Reading, pushing Mr Pinky around the town in a shopping trolley or buggy.
