Nymbus the Swimming Cat

Many people know that cats don't like water, but as a good pet parent, animal columnist Mary Ellen says teaching your pet to swim is "a smart thing to do."

Mary Ellen taught her cat, Nymbus, along with other neighborhood cats, to swim -- saying she did it for a real reason. She says one out of 1,000 pets drown, and she had a swimming pool in her backyard where she didn't want cats to end up and not know what to do.

"Most cats can swim, but what we wanted him to have was the confidence on how to get out," says this extreme pet owner, "It was a real teaching thing."
