Cat has its eyes on the water, and the camera captures the most perfect moment

Cats and water are never a good mix. Or are they? This little cat sits by the water with a very specific goal in mind, as you can see in the video below.
First, for context, this furball is in Istanbul, Turkey. Cats are seen a bit differently there. As The Economist says, they are beloved strays who are well taken care of by their community. Dogs enjoy the same benefits — they sleep on patios, and people make shelters for them in the winter and leave out food.

But what's this little guy doing?
Cats don't just rely on human kindness for their food. They're also great hunters — and this guy is catching his dinner!
You can see here that he's tensed up — it's because he sees his target and he's waiting for the perfect moment to strike.
Kitty snags his prize, then trots off to enjoy his dinner in peace.
If you want to know more about the cats of Istanbul, have a listen to NPR's story on the great movie "Kedi." It's all about the street cats in Turkey, and how much they mean to the people and their culture.
We hope you enjoy watching the video. He's a skilled little hunter and cute too. And don't forget to share it with your friends and family!
