We swear. Well, there are a few factors at play .
They automatically hold their breath, their heart rate slows when human infants are submerged in water, and flow to their hands and feet decreases to stop them losing warmth. All of us on earth are descended from ancestors who lived in the sea countless millions of years back perhaps for some animals today the instinct for swimming has been ingrained to act similar.
Secondly, some cats may have been bred for specific traits — like a physique or a specific sort of coat — which may make it challenging to swim – imagine on swimming with a mink coat. Even in case you have an indoor / outdoor cat, and a pool in your garden , you might have kept them indoors for the first few months of the life. Also, because we presume our cats don’t like water, we keep them from the way of the tub and the pool, etc.. A good deal of creatures have a primal instinct for how to act in warm water , especially when they’re young.
We wanted to break the stereotype of cats strictly land dwellers, so here are ten cats who are obviously enjoying life in the pool.
Swimming cats, require water confidence
But why would my cat hate water if it can swim?
Cats Instinctively Know How To Swim
And we all know how this one feels — if a cat has never had to go in water, they feel awkward and uncertain throughout water and can merely reduce their confidence. Below is a video of a few cats that feel that way. Without experience being in cats can become extremely cautious of it, which reaffirms our view that they don’t enjoy it. Nope, that is not a distressed look of existential dread. We don’t know what you are referring to. Being born knowing how to do something does not necessarily indicate it’s something that you are going to be good at it. Cat hunting behaviors are innate for instance, but some cats still manage to really stink swimming. If your cat lives indoors, they haven’t encountered water.
