Stories of animal rescues are always heart warming. Especially when that animal goes on to do some amazing things. You could definitely say that about the little kitty named Kuli. Kuli was in a pretty dire position not too long ago. He was found on the streets of Hawaii with a severe eye wound and incredibly malnourished. He was taken in by his now loving humans, Alexandra Gomez and Krista Littleton, and they were able to get him surgery on his eye. What happened while he was recovering from his eye surgery is the last thing you would ever expect from a cat. It makes this whole story that much more awesome though!
Meet Kuli. His name actually means “To look blind”, so it is pretty fitting. This little guy thankfully got a second lease on life thanks to the kindness of his owners.
Kuli had to have surgery to remove one of his eyes unfortunately. After his surgery his parents would give him baths, which they say is what started his love of his very odd hobby for a cat.
You’ve heard of skateboarding bulldogs and water skiing squirrels? Well meet Kuli the surf boarding cat!
The first time his owners took him to the water, he sat on a surf board all by himself in the shallows and his owner would come and push him along.
As Kuli became more and more comfortable on a board, his parents would take him deeper and deeper into the water.
I’d say he’s pretty comfortable with swimming at this point from the looks of this. He was only 6 months old when he first started his water-loving ways!
His owners made sure he always wore a life jacket when he was first learning how to swim. He is so proficient however that he doesn’t need one any more.
His humans make sure to not take him out in conditions that are too rough or windy. I’m sure Kuli is a good swimmer, but I don’t know how long he would last without a board to climb on to.
It’s not often you see cats who love the water, but this little guy sure as heck does. His owners seem to love having him out there too.
Kuli seems to love his new life, and why shouldn’t he! He has two humans of his own who love him dearly, and he gets to go on adventures with them all the time. It’s really a surprise this little guy hasn’t made more of an impression on the internet. With these adorable antics, I’m not sure if he will be unknown for long however. We sure enjoyed finding out about him!
