Cats hate water. Put a cat near water (unless it's for them to drink), and the happiest feline becomes an angry miniature lion. That is, apart from this adorable kitten.

Cats are the embodiment of cleanliness. Their barbed tongue and forepaws are the perfect tools for grooming which has meant our feline friends can escape a trip to the groomers or a dip in the bath unlike their canine siblings.

For both cats and their owners, this is a good thing as cats are well-known for their strong dislike of water.

So you can imagine how surprised one cat owner was when they walked into the bathroom only to find their adorable kitten enjoying a soak in the sink.

In the cute clip shared on Reddit, the kitten sits in a full sink of water with not a care in the world. As the kitty relaxes in the water, her paws rest under the water as she watches her owner film her bathtime.

Water lover

It looks as if this cat is not keen to rush their soak in the sink and could even drop off to sleep.

Cat lovers on Reddit can't get enough of the clip, although some admit to being a little envious. One Redditor commented: "My cats hate water too and I've always been jealous of people with water-loving cats. My one hates it so much when I try turning the faucet on for him he just fights it. Biting and slapping."

Meanwhile, others shared their experiences of having water-loving cats, like this poster: "I’m glad I’m not the only one with cats like this. My two will try like hell to get into the bathroom with you if you are taking a shower in our master bath because our shower is not a step over tub. So they can walk in as they please.”
