I went for a swim in honour of Your Cat- Cat Watch Day!

Well, I’m thinking of making swimming a weekly pastime. Yes furiends! I fell in the drink again today! In my defence, it’s National Cat Watch Day being run by Your Cat Magazine, so I wanted the humans to have something pawesome to report when they filled out the questionnaire… It turns out the question that asks ‘what did your cat do today?’ doesn’t have ‘went for a swim’ as a response!

As usual, the humans insisted on a freshwater shower after my watery adventure!



Mum tried to help me get dry but I soon managed to shake her off and get down to business!




It’s really impawtant not to forget to dry between your toes! If you’ve got a minute pop over to Your Cat’s questionnaire here and fill in your antics for the day. I’m looking forward to seeing the results but not as much as I’m looking forward to Human Watch Day… I’m sure that’s going to be pawesome!

Have a grreat week evfurryone!

Bisous Bailey


  1. It’s really great to see and hear that you love to swim. None of my feline furbabies loved the water. Bisous!


  2. Oh Bailey you fell in AGAIN? Goodness my friend…..I suspect you enjoy the swimming part more than the BATH part though!

    Hugs, Sammy


  3. You do keep Mum busy with your antics, my Sabrina.loves the water, she drinks from the spigot and walks under running water all the time, she does not mind being sprayed in the sink, she too would probably jump in given the chance. It keeps her busy cleaning her furtastic coat. Oh and where is your Critters Inflatable life jacket? Be safe on the sea. Have a great week!! Purs and Hugs


  4. Bailey, oh lovely Bailey, this is unbelievable 🙂 you are really being a sea cat! Love and hugs, Thank you, nia


  5. Lol Bailey you’re turning into a catfish:-)


  6. Oh brofur…you silly boy. We think you are really starting to like this swimming thing. You know, our humans got an above ground 17 foot swim/spa a couple of months ago. Mom keeps threatening to throw Mauricio in so that he can get his swimming merit badge at Cat Scouts. We are sure she will manage eventually.

    We are so excited. The mail person just delivered our very own copy of your book. What you pawtographed to us was so super nice. Mom can’t wait to show it off at Blog Paws and pass out your card. And we can’t wait for her to read it us. Thanks from the bottom of our furry hearts. You are the best brofur ever. XO from your sisters and brofur, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo with special hugs and smooches from Mom Janet and XO to Mum Lou


  7. Admiral, sir, you’re not supposed to be in the “drink” that often. Stay dry. 🙂


  8. Bailey, I am beginning to think you are part fish!

  14. Thank Bask you can swim Bailey. Plus you are quite acrobatic by that last photo! Be careful and be safe.
    Marty and Mom


  15. Bailey, did you plan that swim? We’ve never been in the water.


  16. I’m starting to think you enjoy these little baptisms in the water.


  17. In Italy we say: “il troppo stroppia”, i.e. excesses are sometimes unhealthy, or too much of a good thing…


  18. Oh Bailey, you are really getting much too fond of this swimming lark.


  19. All I can say is, Bailey, you are one brave feline!


  20. Very good of you to put yourself through that just so they had an interesting answer!

    Oh no, kitty overboard!! Hope you got yourself really clean afterwards!

    Bailey you silly boy, falling in again? How does this keep happening?! Do you pretend play ‘Pirate at Sea’ and somehow end up being the one to walk the plank?! Be careful or your pawrents are going to make you wear that life jacket more often than you will like! I’m frustratingly waiting for Amazon to send me your book, I pre-ordered months ago and everyone seems to have it but me. Amazon says they will ship when it’s in stock, all I can think is that it is so pawesomely popular that they can’t keep enough in stock! If that’s the case I am thrilled as I do hope it is a bestseller. I have no doubt it will be and you will be the Cat Sea Captain celebrity known the world over. 💙💚😻😽
