Hauraki, NZ kitty Cassie jumped into her human dad Michael Raynes’ kayak one day last November. Now she and Michael are out paddling around Shoal Bay together every day.
Michael adopted Burmese-mix Cassie last year from the SPCA and says she showed an interest in water from the start, drinking from the tap, getting into the shower, and playing at the shoreline.
Michael says he was cautious the first time Cassie jumped into the kayak but soon realized she wanted to go for rides. He says she’ll walk out on the bow and plays to the attention of onlookers.
Weather depending, the two head out into the bay at each high tide.
