Default why do cats hate water so much?

Does anyone know this? Do their ancestors also hate water? I am assuming it is an evolutionary reason. Maybe it has something to do with lions being so vulnerable to certain water based predators like alligators.

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