It may seem like a silly question since you never see cats playing in the water, so you may ask yourself, can cats swim? Yes, cats can swim when they have.
Most cats would rather not being near any water, and keeping their paws dry. However, some cats do like the water, and when a cat has to swim, it will know to move its legs and swim to an area where it can get out of the water.
In the wild, many large cats will go in streams and rivers to catch their prey, or even fish. It’s also been noted that some cats will walk around in water to cool their bodies off.
The majority of domestic cats will enjoy their time out of the water, as their massive amount of fur will get quite water logged and be very uncomfortable.
