My friends who live in Finland, where the Sauna is very common and used at least once a week, told me that their cat loved to follow the family when they went into the sauna. They washed the cat and put a towel around it and then took it in and let it dry upon an oven that was not too hot, and the cat seemed to like all this. Has your cat done something unusual, and are there cats who really like water?

I actually saw a special on this one bread of cat that loves the water like that. Most cats don't, not because they hate water but because they hate all the work they have to do afterwards in cleaning themselves. This one breed though, and I can't remember the name or where they are found but Finland sounds like it or similar, loves to go into the water. They showed these cats going into pools, tubs, even trying to get into the dishwasher to get to the water. It was funny to watch. My cats won't do that. Oh they might sleep in the sink or something but not when the water is on.

Thanks, this is interesting, I have also heard of cats that like to swim.
