There’s a stereotype that cats don’t like water. Kuli couldn’t break from that cliche more. He doesn’t just love the water, he’s been riding the waves on a surfboard with his owners, Alexandra Gomez and Krista Littleton, for over a year. The one-eyed cat spends his days in Honolulu, Hawaii enjoying the ocean.
Kuli was rescued from the streets when he was a kitten. He was malnourished and his left eye had to be removed due to infection. While he was recovering from surgery, his owners would bathe him. They figure that might have started his love of water. Kuli’s owners brought him to the beach one day and let him float on a surfboard near the shore as they paddled him around. Before long, Kuli was riding out with them to catch the waves.
Kuli wore a life jacket while learning to swim, and his owners got a special board for him to stay on more easily. Now he just loves surfing and swimming, and he’s got a huge Instagram following. He’s living the surfer dude life that most of us can only dream of.
