We all know cats can be grumpy little furballs. We also know they usually hate water. This one ginger cat channelled his grumpiness into pure determination to survive and faced a swim in the floodwaters of Hurricane Harvey.

Photographer Scott Olson managed to capture this incredible image for the Los Angeles Times while documenting the destruction in Houston. A Houston news station looks like they were able to spot the same cat taking refuge on the hood of a car, giving us hope he’ll have a smile on his face soon.
You can only imagine what this cat was thinking. Luckily it was able to get out the water. pic.twitter.com/FQFelSfGUn

This furry hero was, of course, celebrated across social media with a bunch of memes already going around.
