Meet Rocco, the beach-loving feline who's forever in his element by the sea.

This dashing fellow has an unwavering love for water and boats that's truly remarkable!

We spoke to Rocco's human mom Michelle and she told us that his aquatic adventures began when he was just a 12-week-old kitten, initially as part of his rehabilitation journey. 

Little did she know that those boat trips would turn into a lifelong passion.

This charming cat has faced some challenges along the way, including two hip joint surgeries.

But, remarkably, boat trips and water activities played a crucial role in his recovery process.

Rocco's zest for life grew stronger with each recovery trip, transforming him into quite the intrepid explorer.

He's even earned his wings, flying alongside his human family on a monthly basis!

What makes Rocco even more captivating is his sense of style.

You'll often find him donning his signature hat and sunglasses, a look that might leave other cats, and humans, scratching their heads in amusement.

His unique sense of style has given Rocco a huge following on Instagram and TikTok

While it might seem unconventional to witness a cat reveling in the water, Rocco is undeniably one-of-a-kind, rewriting the rulebook on feline adventures.

This lovable adventurer doesn't just lounge on the boat and bask in the sun; he occasionally tries his paw at some nautical tasks, like fishing.

Two-year-old Rocco also enjoys watersports, displaying a knack for hanging loose, if not exactly hanging ten!

As long as this extraordinary furry companion can dip his paws in the water, he's content.

When the beach isn't an option, a swimming pool does the trick, although Rocco still prefers to sunbathe on the sandy shores to dry off his lustrous fur.

Being so adventurous he's also partial to the occasional shopping trip. 

His favourite store is Home Depot and all of the staff look forward to his visits.

Watching him savor his beachside activities leaves no room for doubt.
