What breeds of cats like water?

The vast majority of cats do not like swimming in water, or even touching it! However, there are always some exceptions.

Cats are usually intrigued by water and this sometimes causes them to dip the odd paw in a bath or pond, but it is very rare to see a domestic cat go for a dip - at least, not intentionally!
