Lava The Cat Frolics Around Hawaii Like It's Her JOB

Some cats stay indoors all day trying to win Internet fame. Others get stuck in things. But Lava, "The Adventure Cat" from Hawaii, has a lifestyle we totally envy.

Instead of using YouTube and homemade gimmicks to hit it big, she galavants around the island of Oahu doing whatever the heck she pleases. She has even trained her human to document all her escapades on Twitter and Instagram, where she's gained more than 20,000 followers.

She's a paid celebrity (sponsored by PetBox Inc.), but she doesn't let that get to her head. She'd rather be a sandy-bottomed beach bum in the rugged (and beautiful) island she calls home.

If we had nine lives, we wish one of them could be as relaxing as hers. Just check out these photos:

Don't mind Lava; she's just soaking in some rays under the bright Hawaiian sun.

Thought cats were afraid of water? Lava doesn't mind it.

She has no problem in the pool, either.

And the ocean? Lava's down for a little salty dip anytime.

... As long as she can dry off in the sand and under the sun!

She loves looking at the mountains from the valley...

And the beach.

She even knows a thing or two about getting fancy.

But don't let her fool you. She's a beach bum at heart.

After all, nothing soothes the soul better than a good friend...

And life in paradise.
