A cat followed a group of hikers for 30 km. They renamed him Pellegrino and in addition to being adopted by one of the members of the group, he has also become their mascot.

The story that follows is set in our beautiful country, in particular in the municipality of Montefiorino, in the province of Modena. Here resides a group of hikers, called GEM (group of hikers from Montefiorino), who delight in walking along the Apennines.

And it is during one of these excursions that they found along the way, which from Montefiorino arrives in San Pellegrino in Alpe, a cat. It is not uncommon to find them during walks, maybe they follow the hikers for a while, demanding even a few caresses and then after a while they continue on their way; instead the cat in question was particularly attracted to the group and has not stopped following them for a moment.

The hikers became aware of the constant presence of the cat, which followed them at step and without ever losing sight of them. One of them, Mr. Sergio, launched an idea: he would have become their mascot if he had followed them to Pietravolta, a hamlet located more than a thousand meters away.

The others took the idea with enthusiasm and in their hearts they all hoped that the kitten would follow them to their destination. And the kitten followed them there. So as promised, Mr. Sergio he adopted it and made him the Gem mascot.

The journey then continued up to the vault of San Pellegrino dell’Alpe and hikers wondered what name to give to their new mascot!

You know which was the chosen name? own Pilgrim and for two simple reasons; the first is that he arrived with them as far as San Pellegrino, the second is because he behaved like a real "pilgrim" in that has covered more than 30 km.

Now the little pilgrim, thanks to his tenacity and determination, has a house of his own and is surrounded by the love of a large family.
