Fishing Cats
By Vickie Chao
  

1     Have you ever heard of the notion that cats dislike water? In South and Southeast Asia, there is a type of cat that can prove this theory wrong.
 
2     Enter the fishing cat.
 
3     The fishing cat, as its name implies, eats fish. But it also eats many other things, like frogs, crabs, rodents, and birds. When it is hungry, it may swim underwater to catch fish or attack birds from below. Or it may gently tap the surface of the water mimicking the movement of insects. As a fish swims by to investigate, the fishing cat will quickly scoop it out using its partially webbed paws. Given its diet, the fishing cat certainly knows how to swim well. If needed, it can also climb up a tree and dive headfirst to catch prey.
