I’d always heard that cats were afraid of water. The popular taunt ‘scaredy-cat’ I heard for the first time in my life because of the high dive. With such a drastic fear of heights, I couldn’t jump. I later heard a rumor that cats lose all their body temperature when they are soaking wet. So maybe not a fear, just something some cats avoid.
Still, I know for a fact I can’t walk on water unless there’s floor right underneath it. When I first saw Didga’s amazing trick, I couldn’t help but laugh. It was such a silly concept for a cat to be able to walk on water. However, probably would be a good basis for a superhero cat’s special move.
With the assistance of this well-known cat’s dog-friend, it appears anything was possible. They both seemed adequately prepared to take on the world. Their body language showed confidence I hadn’t seen before.
They did many tricks before this and Didga has an amazing series of moments online. I’ve gotten deep in, I’ll admit it. Yet, this simple trick he uses I would’ve never thought to do. I guess two of the old sayings are true. ‘Two heads are always better than one,’ and ‘cats are afraid of water.’
