The young male tabby was dumped in a Dyke in Spalding, Lincolnshire, six inches deep in water on Monday.
The RSPCA were called, and have taken him into their care.
"He was unhurt and in good health, and he looks as if he has been cared for, so it is possible he is a much loved pet and that someone else dumped him in this callous way."

Two men have been jailed for life after being convicted of the murder of Ivans Zdanovics in Gainsborough last year.
Martynas Kupstys and Andrus Giedraitis were convicted by a jury at Lincoln Crown Court earlier this week after denying murdering 24-year-old Mr Zdanovics at his terraced house home in Etherington Street, Gainsborough, between 15th and 18th January last year.
During their trial the court heard that the fire was started while Mr Zdanovics was asleep inside the property. The two defendants claimed they had no knowledge that he was at home when the fire was started and had no intention to kill him, rather damage some of his belongings in a dispute over cannabis.
Mr Zdanovics died as a result of smoke inhalation.
Martynas Kupstys, 26, was sentenced to life in prison to serve a minimum of 25 years.
Andrus Giedraitis, 30, was sentenced to life in prison to serve a minimum of 21 years.
