Why Are Cats Afraid of Water?

Answer

Cats fear water because water changes the smell of the cat, and also the ability for the fur of the cat to insulate the body properly. Water in a cat's highly convoluted ear canal is very disturbing and can result in painful ear infections. Rain water obscures the highly sensitive vision of the cat.
