The cat who inspired it all

Jackson the blind cat inspired a business that helps beloved cats everywhere. As Jackson got older, his eye sight took a turn for the worst, making it difficult for him to find the litter box. He eventually went blind. Not only was this uncomfortable for Jackson, but our family as well. As Jackson continued to LG struggle making his way to the litter box, we were constantly right behind him cleaning up. However, this wasn't enough of a reason to give up. He wasn't just a cat, he was part of our family. He rode along on family trips and made lasting impressions on everyone he met. Refusing to give up on our blind companion, we knew something had to be done---Litter Getter was born.

Do Cats Really Hate Water?

The sound of water makes cats run to the farthest point of the house.

It is impossible to bathe your cat.

Even the outdoor cat won’t go outside when it’s raining.

We’ve all heard these before. But how much truth lies behind those statements? Do cats really hate water? 

The quick and simple answer is no. Cats don’t necessarily hate water. In fact, there are breeds of cats, like the Turkish Van cat (also known as the “swimming cat”) that enjoy being in waters. So why does this myth about cats and water exist?

According to Animal Planet, since the early ages of domesticating cats, owners have shielded felines from water. These wild cats were primarily from Europe, Africa and China and did not need water to adapt and evolve. Scientists believe this transcended to today’s cats being “afraid” of water. But history alone doesn’t justify this myth. Forcing a cat to bathe, or using water for disciplinary action can result in a feline’s negativity towards water. Baths may be a cat’s worst enemy. Therefore it is recommended to start bathing them as kittens, so they get accustomed to the process.

So you may never get your cat to like baths, but that doesn’t mean they don’t like water. House cats are actually quite intrigued by water. Ever notice your cat running towards the sound of water? How about dipping its paw into a bowl of water? Most common would be the faucet. Cats are fascinated by dripping (and non-dripping) faucets and will try to catch the drops with its paws.

Still not convinced? Here’s a video compilation of cats and water:
