Can house cats swim?

Answer

Domestic cats are naturally capable of swimming, although they typically do not enjoy water. One reason why cats avoid water is that their coats becomes waterlogged when submerged.

The domestic cat is a small, carnivorous mammal of the Felidae family. It hunts using its sharp, retractable claws and its powerful jaw, which can deliver a fatal bite to prey by severing the spinal cord. Domestic cats are proficient at maintaining body temperature, despite a lack of sweat glands. The domestic cat pants in order to relieve excess heat and conserves heat by reducing blood flow to the skin. A domestic cat can drink seawater due to its extraordinarily efficient kidneys.
