Will and Guy are able to bring you a cat which enjoys a dip
in the pool.
A cat in Australia is defying its species' famous dread of water by
taking regular dips in a swimming pool. This one, which has the unusual
name of Prinny, is a Persian cat and regularly joins canine friend Bandit,
the blue heeler, at the "Doggy Paddle Swim Centre" in Rosebud, Melbourne.
The paddling pooch has regular swimming sessions in order to help treat
a bad back. Prinny, however, has no such ailment and apparently takes to
the water simply for the fun of it.
Doggy Paddle owner Jacque Olsen told us, 'I've never seen a cat swim
before. Bandit came here with a bad back and his owner said the cat swims
with him at home, so Prinny hopped in the pool with him next time he
Jacque originally set up her unique swim centre, which boasts a
8m x 2m lap pool, for her Staffy cross ridgeback Ubud, whose back legs
became paralysed after he suffered an embolism. 'After six months of
swimming Ubud was walking again,' she said.
Today, the Doggy Paddle swim centre has 150 dogs on its books and, of
course, one cat.
