Hey! Where'd this kitteh come from? I just got finished telling MC2 and Sarah that the scuba diving kitteh was down among yesterday's posts, and up she bobs to the top!

Funny swimming kitteh! Woot!

Huh. I was wondering what Meg meant when she wrote that there were two vids in a row.

Anyway, yay Hawkeye for destroying the stereotype of swimmers and divers being so svelte.

wtf
Alright when do we have the mountain climbing goldfish?
Or is this cat very fussy about the freshness of her fish?

It cracks me up the way he just floats and lets the guy drive him around in the water. I can't believe this doesn't totally freak him out!

OMG! So cute. See those little foots floating in the water? :P

I wonder if that diving gear comes in a hamster size...?

Is anyone else here seeing double? (i.e., vid. has been posted below, too) or is it just me?

Weird.

Oops, this is posted twice. So our speculations about skydiving, rock climbing, rapids shooting, and downhill skiing with Hawkeye have all been lost.

Bummer.

That is so crazy! Who would have thought about it?

I dunno. I kind of find it deeply disturbing.

And Hawkeye's owder has WAAAY too much time and money to spare!

Incredible.

Ah. Equilibrium restored. Thanks, pyrit ;)

A thinker - Thanks really to Theo.
For a sec I was real worried about my *brilliant* Darwin comment becoming extinct.

I don't want to sound like a nuffingham - but this seems more disturbing than cute.

I think it's irresponsible to take chances with your pets like this!!!

Catfish!

... sorry. Had to. Scuba-diving cats .. I luv it. ^^
Teh fishies will never be safe again... ^.~

Thorne
 |  Jan 17, 2007 at 11:09 AM

Of all the pro and con comments.. I happen to think this is lovely.. if either of my cats would even remotely tolerate scuba diving.. I'd totally take them along.. awesomeness.. definitely

Faekitty (Heather M.)
 |  Jan 17, 2007 at 11:13 AM

LOL! How cute is THAT!

Subhangi
 |  Jan 17, 2007 at 11:23 AM

Oh my goodness... I visit CO every day (obv several times/day) and I never comment, but I *had* to here!!

Instead of the doggy-paddle (how insulting, of course!), this kitteh is doing the Kitteh-paddle!

Erika
 |  Jan 17, 2007 at 11:26 AM

Hey, if the cat (and her doggy friend) enjoy it, why not? Neither animal seemed at all traumatized or upset. It's cute!

Gryph
 |  Jan 17, 2007 at 11:30 AM

My college has a rule that all pets must live underwater in an aquarium. Since I moved in, I've missed all my fuzzy animals!

Well, looks like problem solved. I just need Hawkeye!

Cait
 |  Jan 17, 2007 at 11:39 AM

What? I...*mind boggling*

Where do I get one of these superkitties?

Melissa
 |  Jan 17, 2007 at 11:45 AM

does anyone know how i can get in touch with that dude? I NEEEEEED some scuba gear for my kitteh!

Amanda
 |  Jan 17, 2007 at 11:50 AM

Whew.
Clearly we have completed a chaos today.

Theo
 |  Jan 17, 2007 at 11:55 AM

Oh, my god! That's so cute! And she swims on her own, too... Se must have some tiger in her... ^_^
And yay for cat/dog friendship! ^_^

Fish Eye no Miko
 |  Jan 17, 2007 at 12:01 PM

I'm sure the kitty or his mate are not traumatized... They seem to be very at ease in the underwater world. But... I completely agree with brokentreasures, this seems very irresponsible. A cat can't pressurize his ears like we do. And what if he gets the decompression sickness? How do you recognize the symptoms? Who treats him if he gets sick? Nobody knows how a cat's body reacts to increasing pressure, so you can't really know what's going to happen, even if he doesn't dive very deep.
It comes down to ethics again. I agree, this looks cute, but I wouldn't take risks like that with animals or babies who can't decide for themselves. I am a diver myself (just a beginner, but still) but I know and understand the risks, so it's my own choice.

 |  Jan 17, 2007 at 12:03 PM

I wonder how the Naked Ones would feel about this. They at least would have an easy dry off after swimming.

The best part? Hawkeye's little legs paddling away under water!!

Redzilla

My favorite show! I get to watch another episode of "Squee Hunt"!

Aubrey
 |  Jan 17, 2007 at 12:10 PM

So wait a minute...do I get to say that I was on CO TWICE then?!

Er, I mean, that the video I found, liked, carefully captioned for my deaf friends, and posted to Google Video is on CO twice? (And yes, I did get the guy's name wrong, can you spot the other error?)

You. Made. My. Day. SRSLY.

Meredith
 |  Jan 17, 2007 at 12:11 PM

BTW, folks, for the people concerned about fish swimming by, kitty equalizing the water pressure for her ears, etc:

She's in a backyard swimming pool the whole time. It's probably not deep enough to cause pressure changes, and there are no feesh.

Meredith
 |  Jan 17, 2007 at 12:13 PM

Hi Meredith. It's been a crazy day. Do you know the cat & dog (and their handlers)?

Theo
 |  Jan 17, 2007 at 12:26 PM

She's a redonkulous kitteh. Does she maybe think she's a dog, with the doggie best friend and loving to swim?

The mind is boggled. But what a clever girl Hawkeye is! Getting her person to build her a special rig, and then having him move her around so she doesn't have to exert any effort at all? Floating weightless must be nice since she seems a, er, sturdy cat.

I shall be stunned all day by this. Hee!

My cat, Puddles, is so named because we have never been able to keep her out of the water. She showers with EVERYONE in the house, everyday. If she hears the shower turned on and can't get in the door, she meows and claws at it until you let her in. She jumps in the baby pool. She sits under the sprinkler.

If she sees this video, she's gonna want a scuba tank. Please--no one tell her. . .

Well, I guess reincarnation is real because I keep dying and coming back to life. This one killed me, but here I am!! :D

 |  Jan 17, 2007 at 01:01 PM

OK, back again - my concern isn't "animal abuse" here, more like "Why would you *want* to put a dog/cat/rabbit/whatever in scuba gear and *then* make them learn to dive/swim?"

It just seems completely unnatural and, well - not quite sane, maybe? ;)

E. Collison
 |  Jan 17, 2007 at 02:43 PM

Why would anybody WANT to make a career out of fixing databases, or reviewing music? Why would anyone WANT to climb Mt. Everest? Why would anyone WANT to grab that brass ring?

;)

Theo
 |  Jan 17, 2007 at 03:00 PM

"Why would anyone WANT to grab that brass ring?"

Personally, T., I'm always scared that I'll throw an elbow out. Those carousels are TOUGH.

Aubrey
 |  Jan 17, 2007 at 03:09 PM

Who says cats can't scuba dive? Go Hawkeye! He's even got a Warrior name.

ok for the comments about the cat pressurizing his ears... he doesn't have to! His ears are in the helmet, not in the water!!! WTF!!

spiderx
 |  Jan 17, 2007 at 03:46 PM

I think that's vaguely awesome, BUT I would be far too worried about something going wrong... But then, I'm mortally afraid of drowning. It's beyond the normal fear.

R.Moore
 |  Jan 17, 2007 at 04:29 PM

That is awesome! The best part is how blase Hawkeye seems to be about it. Just takin' it in stride, one more feline milestone reached!

Has anyone seen the copy I loaned out of 20,000 Leagues Under the Squee?
