Turkish Van

No matter what you've heard, not all cats hate water: Some of them even love it. Since cats instinctively clean themselves, your feline friends will probably balk at a bath, but they can swim when necessary. One breed, the Turkish Van -- native to central and southwest Asia -- is still somewhat rare outside of its original homeland, but loves doggy paddling so much that they've been dubbed "the Swimming Cats," according to the Cat Fanciers Association.
