▷ Why are cats afraid of water?

Maybe you didn’t know that cats are good swimmers. But its dense fur quickly absorbs water, becomes heavier, and pulls the cat down as it attempts to swim. Even after a bath, the weight gain compromises their mobility and they could hardly flee from danger! Once wet, the cat’s body cools and the water removes its body odor.

All of these reasons could explain why cats don’t like water, but experts aren’t quite sure!

A wet cat licks a lot. This is how you will once again “smell good” and will be able to spread your scent.

The cat is attached to its scent, because it distinguishes it from other cats and allows it to mark its territory.
