• Lions like water.
  • No, the bigger cats seem to like it at times.
  • No. Particularly, Van cats are renowned for swimming happily. Also, search the web and you will see pictures of swimming cats.
  • We have had several Turkish Vans over the years and they don't care if they get wet. They just sit out in the rain sometimes and come home completely soaking wet.
  • I think most cats do. However you will always find the odd one who loves it and will go swimming but they are few and far between.
  • No, there are individuals that love water and some like the Turkish Vans, that love swimming. Most of our cats like playing with water, dipping their paws in it and putting their toys in the water and trying to fish them out. But bath time is another matter.
  • ""One of the two accepted breeds in Turkey, the Van Cat is now known in Britain as the Turkish Cat. Originating in the Lake Van area of southeastern Turkey, these cats have been domesticated for centuries (in fact for as long as the famous Saluki Hound); they are much loved and prized by the Turks for their exceptional character and unique colouring. Apart from their great capacity for affection and alert intelligence, their outstanding characteristic is their liking for water, not normally regarded as a feline attribute. They not only dabble in water and play with it, but have been known to enter ponds and even horse-troughs for a swim – they soon became famous as the 'swimming cats.'

  • No, some seem to be rather fascinated by water. I used to know one such cat. After we would get done taking a shower or bath, she would jump into the still wet tub, to watch the water go down the drain. The sound of the last few drops going down, really kept her attention. When out side, she would walk right through the sprinklers with out being fazed too.
