My grandparent's house had a small fish pond (about an acre). There were often feral "farm cats" with litters of kittens. The cats were usually skittish, but one kitten was gregarious and wanted attention when she saw humans. My grandfather rarely named the cats, but he called this one "Marathon."

One time, my brother and I went out on the pond with our grandfather in his little fishing boat. Marathon was at the shore, mewing. She finally walks out into the water and swam out to the boat to be with us.

It's fascinating how 4 legged mammals instinctually know how to swim.

Our cat was way older than our dog. Still, whenever I walked the dog, the cat would follow along by running through the neighbors yards. About halfway on  the 2 mile walk I would have to go pick up the cat and carry her the rest of the way since she was way out of breath.

I had a cat once that I raised from kittenhood. She was super attached to me, and could be surprisingly empathetic (she would comfort me when I cried). One night I walked to the corner store, and the clerk was like, "You can't bring your cat in here." I turned around and there she was. She'd followed me two blocks without me even knowing. It was adorable, but also a little scary. She could have gotten hit by a car crossing the streets.

She passed on a long time ago, but I still miss her.

I had a kitten for a few months, but then lost my job and was not able to keep him. So he went to live with my cousin and her daughter. They treated the cat like a king. He had no wants, every need was met.

but any time I came over for a visit, before i even finished saying hello, that came running up to me and would sit on my lap and sleep for the entire time I was there. I miss that little guy.

Fiance takes Alfie on regular walks to the park, and the two are pretty devoted to each other, so I showed them the video and asked if they could reproduce it. Fiance is hopeful, but Alfie seems pretty skeptical.

They don't. They are just continuing to walk, waiting to get a grip on the ground again. It's only luck that swimming and forward walking are accomplished by the same movements.

That cat got you trained well.

My kitty pretty much follows me everywhere I go. If I leave the house (which isn't much these days) she's usually waiting by the door when I come back.
