The owner of a cat that gained international fame after leaping from a submerged pickup truck into Alberta floodwaters says he was surprised at how eagerly the feline took to the rushing water.

Kevan Yeats says while Momo would sometimes go for a brief paddle in his bathtub, he had no idea the cat would plunge into the water and nimbly swim across a flooded area to dry land.

Yeats says he and Momo were riding in his truck when it hit a deep spot and was subsumed by the overflowing  river on Thursday.

He says he quickly smashed out the back window of the vehicle's cab before hopping into the truck bed with the eight-month-old cat in his arms.

I saw these amazing photos on the news earlier this week. I am so glad that both made it to safety! I think Momo knew he was in danger, and his instincts kicked in.
