We can think of a million different things that are cuter than a fur coat but none is cuter than a rescued mink swimming for the first time.

Zodiac was supposed to be skinned to become a part of a mink fur coat but he was rescued earlier this summer from a fur farm. The little guy now gets to play and enjoy life and judging by a video posted on YouTube, swimming is going to be one of his favorite activities.

In the video, the four month old jumps in and out of a small tub chasing his toys and sometimes his own tail.

Zodiac’s owner stated in an older video that when the mink becomes bigger he will have his own outdoor enclosure and if he’s sociable enough he can be part of an outreach against the use of fur. Seriously, how can anyone want to kill and wear anything with this adorable face?

For now though, Zodiac joins the club of animals living in utmost happiness post rescue like the 500 hens that got to touch the ground for the first time or the mama bear that finally got to raise her cubs after a lifetime of captivity.
