In the 60's Batman movie, Catwoman angrily screams this line at The Penguin when it looks like Batman and Robin are about to use a bazooka to sink the pre-nuclear submarine the supervillains bought wholesale from the navy. The big climactic fight on the deck also has Catwoman throwing her pet cat at Batman, who in turn tosses it into a rubber raft.
•In the animated Disney film The Aristocats, while on their way back to Paris, Duchess, Thomas O'Malley and the kittens all walk onto a railroad track, but when a train comes, the cats all duck underneath the rails, but in the process Marie falls into a nearby river and she cannot swim. O'Malley jumps into the water and gets Marie back to shore, but then it turns out that O'Malley also cannot swim as well. As a result he had to rely entirely on a pair of geese in order for him to get out of the water.
Done more subtly in the third movie of Shrek where a soaking, shivering, near-traumatized Puss in Boots is clinging onto Shrek after the trio dunk themselves in water. Anyone in the audience can tell he obviously didn't enjoy the experience.
Played with more overtly in Puss in Boots when a guard uses a squirt bottle to punish Puss for an attempt to escape jail.
•There was an episode of Spongebob Squarepants where Gary the snail (which is the show's equivalent to a cat) didn't want to take a bath and SpongeBob tried many ways to get him to take one, this case is particularly unusual considering that the entire show takes place underwater.
In Ice Age: The Meltdown, sabretooth tiger Diego is afraid of water since he can't swim. It takes a while for him to overcome this.
