Tuk and the water

Tuk was a cat fascinated by water. In all states. Water in a glass, in a pond, bottled, dripping from faucet or the toilet murky swirl. He could lay motionless for hours, his yellow gaze fixed on that transparent substance that breathes other airs. What he most wanted in the world was to know how to swim, so he could get into that other dimension.
