Cats can love water if you start to bathe them and make them used to water when they are very small.

Several years ago, I went swimming at a hot springs pool. There was a resident cat there who was very friendly and outgoing. She would come up to people at the edge of the pool to be petted, and didn't mind at all that you were petting here with a wet hand or that she was standing on the wet pool deck. She would get pretty wet in the process, purring the whole time.

If you show a mirror to a young kitten, it will try to play with the "other kitten" in the mirror. It can be quite entertaining to watch them bat at their reflection, poke their paws behind the mirror, etc. It usually doesn't take them too long to figure out that the "other kitten" isn't real, and adult cats usually ignore mirrors.

A friend had a cat that would try to 'fight' big cats on animal planet by tapping the tv screen. When he saw that was futile, he would try to attack them from the back of the tv.
