* On ''WesternAnimation/RockosModernLife'', in the episode "The Big Answer," the cats (Paula's family) and turtles (Filburt's family) are on opposite sides at their wedding, and when Heffer starts a fight, all the turtles stand up, then jump back into the water to splash the cats. The cats get angry, and an all-out war ensues.

--> '''Teekl''': Teekl patrol tunnels. Excessive water.
--> '''Paul''': Pretty sure you can just will yourself to be dry-
--> '''Teekl''': Excessive. Water.



* Real Life Aversion: The [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turkish_Van Turkish Van]], also known as the 'swimming cat', who [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin as their name suggests]], don't mind getting wet, and have been know to go swimming. This is explained by their silky dense water-repellent coats, which dry nearly instantly even in cold seasons.

This breed has been known to actually go ''looking'' for water to swim in, and owners have had to lock their bathroom doors to prevent their cats from playing with the faucets.

*** Though in places like the Okavango Delta lions do swim regularly in search of prey; considering the area is practically all covered in water during wet seasons they are pretty much forced to.

* A variation of this trope shows up in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e5xSHuO0dJI videos]] of cats acting stressed when seeing their owners taking a bath and even attempting to "save" their humans from drowning.

* Wild cat inversions: Tigers and jaguars LOVE water and are excellent swimmers, and jaguars are known to hunt fish, turtles & small caimans [[note]]Amazonian Indians claim the jaguar uses its tail as bait, but there's no known observation of this behavior. It's very possible the jaguar's skull-crushing bite came from an origin of hunting heavily armored water reptiles.[[/note]] Also, there's a smaller Asian cat species known as the fishing cat, which has webbed feet. Heck, just look around ''any'' zoo.
