Skinny Water Sumo

Galloway OH

Caught this sumo kitty in about 6 ft. of water in the flood control spillway in the Red River in Manitoba, Canada. She hugged the bottom for about 5 minutes before I made any headway. A couple minutes later, she was sliding into the net. The longest of several 20+ lb. class cats we caught in a 35 min. span.
