Friday Feat: Feline One-Arms


Favia Dubyk is a physician at the University of New Mexico, mother of one dog and five cats, and an avid boulderer. She’s also an advanced stage cancer survivor. Following rounds of surgeries and chemotherapy, focused and intense training helped Dubyk regain her confidence and strength.

Here, Dubyk one-arms with her 11-pound cat Stanford, a step up from her previous max with her 8-pound cat. Fittingly, Dubyk’s Instagram handle is @Felinefavia.

Happy Friday!
