    Not all cats hate water! We once had a black cat who loved to take a dip in the bathtub. We first found this out when daughter #4 called me upstairs to witness that the kitten had jumped into the bathtub with her and was swimming!
    From then on, the two youngest daughters kept some small cat toys by the tub, and that cat would jump into the tub with them and chase his toys in the water.

    All 4 of my cats liked taking baths . They hated drying off because they’d get cold.

    If you bathe kittens when they are small, they can learn to like it.
    Also, I was one of the presumably large crowd of readers who forwarded the link to PZ, so I have helped make the world a tiny bit nicer (purrs contentedly while considering killing, mayhem and the schratching of posts).
