    I agree - it looks like he`s trying to get out, but whatever gets him moving I guess. I don`t know why the cat needs a relaxing hot tub though when he needs to be held still to be in it.

    I had to laugh at him swimming and meowing at the same time - poor little buddy! That`s cool if it works, though. What a little trooper.

    Cats meow in all sorts of situations, not just when they are angry or scared. Sometimes it`s just to say hi or feed me or pet me. He did look a little scared in the pool but he wasn`t trembling and when a cat really wants to get out of something it`s pretty difficult to hold them.

    @beternal - Actually cats meow as their way to communicate with humans. Cats RARELY meow to each other in the wild. Cats meow for pretty much any reason. Yes, they do meow when they are scared or sad.. but also meow to say "hi", "pet me", "feed me" etc.. If a cat doesn`t want to do something or doesn`t like to do something - it`s extremely difficult to get them to do it.

    Just a wild guess, but after being traumatized by water, I`m think that cat no longer likes water like he used to. That video just showed me that cat hates it now, as he was complaining and trying to get out. Cats who love water don`t meow when in it, seen enough cat videos in my day.

    I think it`s wonderful to see an owner take such extraordinary steps to provide a better, happier future for her pet. It saddens me that people will adopt an animal and completely forget that the responsibility of owning a pet is much like having a baby. Pets are completely dependent on their owners for food, water, and love. The wonderful part is, pets don`t ask for anything BUT love in return! You don`t have to buy a dog a car and they will still love you. If a child was injured it would be repugnant to learn that the parents didn`t take extra measures to help rehabilitate their child, but if a PET were to endure a debilitating injury most would just put it to sleep! If you wouldn`t care for a companion animal like you would a child, then please don`t own one!

    vv You NON-catpeople: he really doesn`t mind the water! Not that he loves it or anything, but he`s not all that upset about swimming about in it. Do you doubt my Cat-Fu?

    #1: his meows: they`re not terrified, they`re "calling" meows. He`s letting everyone know where he is (it`s a cat-thing) not screaming in terror!
    #2: He gets to the edge and: shakes his head! A terrified pussy would LUNGE for the nearest exit! Crippled front legs or not!

    This is a kitty-owner with a heart of gold! Bless her! And a VERY brave kitty who I hope & pray gets 100% better! :heart:

    Awww, his facial expression when he`s swimming is adorable.

    Some cats really like water, it`s just some she-say about their hate for liquids that got passed around through the centuries.

    Just like that dogs piss and crap everywhere and they perpetually smell like poo, but that`s *obviously* not correct in any way.

    Everything 5cats said was true, I studied cat psychology (Yes, it`s a real thing).

    I like swimming and I still go for the edge every now and then. Mog`s paralysis probably wont let him get his head out of the water by his self unless he`s moving, which is why she picks Mog up when he goes to the edge, mostly because he gets tired, and needs to rest his legs.

    I hope he gets a quick and full recovery.

    POOR BABY!!!! this reminds me off when I accidently ran over that cat last week, I felt horrible for the poor thing, I actually stopped my car, parked and walked back to it, with a tear filled faced bawling my eyes out, appologizing to the poor thing over and over again..there was nothing I could do to stop from running him over...I tried to slam my breaks and swearve..but it was too late..i still feel really sick about it..poor baby...luckily there was a female cop behind me who saw what happened. she turned on her lights and took him so he wouldnt of kept getting ran over...poor thing I felt soo terrible..I still feel sick when I think about it, I hope nothing like that happens ever again..But he was hauling ass across the road when I hit him. I tried to miss him and there was nothing I could do...
