As the owner of three adorable — and slightly rotund — felines, I'm pretty much a sucker for any cute kitty in sight. And while there's no doubt cats are my favorite animals on planet earth, I'd be lying if I said my brood was particularly talented at anything other than waking me up at 3 a.m. for food and sleeping all dang day. But apparently, not all kitties are quite as lazy. Meet Nathan — or Nathan the Beach Cat to her 318,000 Instagram followers — a 1-year-old black cat who is taking the internet by storm with her insane swimming skills.
After being found in a box on the freeway in Australia, Nathan was eventually adopted by her humans, Rian and Mel, and boy, is she living the good life. Although it's a pretty well-known fact that all cats absolutely loathe water in any way, shape, or form, Nathan prefers to spend her time swimming with her parents and lounging on the beach.
Luckily for any pet-lover with an Instagram account, Mel and Rian are there to document Nathan's frequent beach trips, and we can't get enough. Scroll through to see photos and videos of Nathan living her very best life.
