25 Crazy Cats That LOVE Water

cat-loves-water-bath-30__605

You can’t stereotype people or animals. Case and point… everyone assumes that ALL cats hate water just because a great many of them are not fans of H2O. In the past many attempted cat baths have gone badly for me. I end up with scratches and my partially wet cat runs off to hide in a corner somewhere. But I can put all that behind me now, because I finally found my very own water-loving cat named Soapy!

So despite the common assumption that all cats hate water, turns out there are plenty of kitties out there that absolutely love it. Just take a look at these aqua-adoring cats on our list that clearly prove water does float some cat’s boats.

1. Do you mind? I’m trying to enjoy my bath right now

Cats are constantly busy cleaning themselves but most cats don’t want you to give them a bath. It’s believed that cats hate being submerged in water because it causes fur to become waterlogged, which makes your cat feel really heavy.

An even more likely reason cats freak out when they are submerged, or slip and fall, into water is because cats are naturally skittish. Hence why they will panic and go crazy trying to escape, but maybe if they’d only take a moment to relax they would realize they kind of like getting their paws wet–you never know, the cats on this list realized it!

7. Don’t forget to put on your cap cat before getting in the bath!

One reason cats don’t do well with water is because their ears can easily become infected if water gets trapped in there. This cute little shower cap for cats gets rid of that problem by covering a bathing feline’s ears.
