Video showed the hilarious moment a cat sitting on the edge of a dinghy tried to leap onto a nearby sailboat and ended up in the water – but miraculously survived the daring jump.
The video was captured by [poster ‘svphoenixstudio,’ the kitty’s owner, who posted the entertaining clip to her TikTok with the caption: ‘The day I learned Roger is an excellent swimmer.’
Footage showed the curious cat jumping onto the edge of the dinghy. The owner’s voice was heard telling her feline friend. ‘Careful please … really careful… not yet.’
‘Roger,’ she called out as the cat was seen seconds later with its four legs sprawled out, making a big splash- belly first – into the ocean waters and only inches away from the sailboat he was trying to leap toward.
The sound of splashing water was heard in the background and the owner’s flip-flop could be seen moving across the raft as she gave a reassuring tone. ‘It’s okay … come back over here…Roger…Roger come here.

Though the video does not capture the actual rescue mission, the owner was overheard saying: ‘Oh my god… Oh my gosh… I am so glad you know how to swim.’
She continued: ‘You are not going to do that again, OK?. You are not going to do that again.’
The soggy cat responded with a ‘meow,’ as the owner replied, ‘I know that could have been very bad.’
Hannah is Roger’s owner, and according to her blog, she describes herself as a ‘sailor and an artist.’
‘Everyone’s story is interesting and important. Everyone’s story is also multidimensional and unique. Here’s mine,’ she penned.
Hannah has a passion for sailing. She has earned her USCG 25 Ton Masters License (Captains License) and shares the trips she has taken.
‘I’ve sailed in Vermont, Maine, The Caribbean, and most recently down to the Chesapeake. I’ve worked as a charter captain, racing coach, and in a sail loft. I now own and live aboard my own sailboat. All of this began with a conversation. An idea that grew, and continues to grow,’ she wrote.
In her post, she spoke about her art and the Etsy shop she opened in November 2021, called ‘sv Phoenix Studio.’ She said she came up with the name since her art was started aboard the sailing vessel named ‘Phoenix.’
Many people viewed the video and appeared elated by the stunt and relieved that Roger made it back to the boat unscathed.
‘Awww, glad he is ok!’ one person wrote in the comment section of the video’s repost to YouTube.
Another said: ‘Lol… so cute… I like his little sad meow at the end. I would buy you a GoPro to see all the antics of your swimming kitty if I could!’
