Cats Hate Water? Think Again. This Feline Loves The Tub
The cats in exhibit A are just a small sample of what you’ll get when you Google “cats hate water.” Clearly Harvey, in Exhibit B, didn’t get that memo!
Carmen reached out with this charming — and bizarre — story about her Harvey, who she found out loves water. Here’s their story:
“He has always liked water and he used to crawl in the shower with me when I had a lower tub and shower curtain. Since moving, every time I take a bath he is at the side of the tub! He usually stands up on the side and meows. Sometimes I get water on him (accidentally) and he never minds. That night, he was being extremely persistent so I picked him up and hovered him over the water and he didn’t mind. So I dipped a little paw in the tub, nothing. So then I went for another paw… And so on. And finally I plunk him in the tub…. And he IMMEDIATELY begins purring! It was too funny!
He was so relaxed and didn’t move for quite some time. Eventually I began worrying that the water was too warm (even though it obviously wasn’t scolding hot; I didn’t know how his internal temp worked and I worry about everything), so I took him out. But man did he enjoy it! I imagined it was like a hot tub for him… Nice and relaxing and I wondered if it felt good for him after all the falling and tumbling he does?!”
Does your cat love the water or have a funny or quirky part to their personality? Please share in the comments!
