Just when you thought the internet had blown up from the mind-numbing effects of these cats, comes the curiousity that is swimming cat! Hailing from the warm waters of someplace in eastern Europe, this seafaring kitty shows no sign of hesitation as he eases into the clear blue sea for leisurely swim.

Why is this cat swimming?

For starters, his swim instructor is a looker, so that is one motivation. Additionally, contrary to popular belief, not all cats are afraid of the water. In fact the Turkish Van, one of the oldest known domesticated cat breeds, also likes to swim. While we're not positive of this particular swimmin' kitties heritage, he def has mastered the kitty paddle.
