Most cats dislike the water, but this cat is happy to live it and even take trips out in a canoe with his owners.

Healthcare manager Bernadette Brady-Lockwood and her husband Andy, both in their forties, sold their house in Devon to live aboard a yacht in 2011.

They have two pets aboard the boat, Salty and Pip.

Salty loves joining them in the canoe during the summer.

Bernadette said: “Our cat is called Salty, he is a pedigree Turkish Van.

“He doesn’t mind the water on his own terms, he will wade in both fresh water and sea water.

“In the warm weather, both our pets Pip and Salty spend time in and out of different boats.”
