Meet Kuli, The One-Eyed Cat From Hawaii Who Loves Swimming


Kuli is a one-eyed cat who has been surfing and swimming with his humans, Alexandra Gomez and Krista Littleton for more than a year now in Honolulu. He was only 6 months old when he rode waves for the first time.

The name Kuli means “to look blind”, which make sense now. He’s completely fine with the water now which is probably because his owners used to give him bath while he was recovering from an eye surgery. The owners told that the cat was rescued from the streets when he was so little and malnutritioned, weighing only about one pound.

“His first time in the water, we just let him float on the board by himself near the shoreline and I would paddle around with him,” Alexandra Gomez told dailymail. “Before we knew it we were looking for waves to surf.” The cat is happy, safe and sound now. Whenever needed, he wears a life jacket.

Kuli was 6 months old when he began riding waves.

“His first time in the water, we just let him float on the board by himself near the shoreline and I would paddle around with him.”

He’s completely fine with the water now which is probably because his owners used to give him bath while he was recovering from an eye surgery.

“Before we knew it we were looking for waves to surf.”

“So we bought a board that Kuli would be able to get out on the surf with.”

The cat was rescued from the streets when he was so little and malnutritioned, the eye had to be removed because of an infection…

The name Kuli means “to look blind”.

“Before he could swim confidently on his own, Kuli always wore a life jacket.”

“He still wears it from time to time depending on the conditions – but we are careful not to take him out if it is too windy or the water is too rough.”
