Does surfing with a cat on your surfboard make you an athlete?

Yahoo News:

Peruvian surfer Domingo Pianezzi rides a wave accompanied by a cat named Nicolasa at the San Bartolo beach in Lima January 31, 2008.

I'll admit that I don't like cats.  They remind me of giant rodents.  The way they walk and stick their tail up in the air so you can see their butt hole makes me sick to my stomach.  

But even I think this is cruel to throw a cat in the ocean and make him surf.  

Here's a video of the surfing cat.  When he gets dumped off the board at the end and is made to swim ashore I can't help but think this surfer is being cruel. The cat meowing for help will haunt your dreams.  Cats hate water because it's really hard to lift your tail when swimming.  How is this cat supposed to present his butt hole to the world?
