Friday Puzzler -- The Duck and The Cat

Alex Y
There is a duck at the center of a circular pond. This duck cannot fly from the water, but can take to flight immediately upon reaching land.
At the edge of the pond is a cat who cannot swim, but who loves nothing more than to eat duck.
The cat can run four times as fast as the duck can swim. Can the duck escape?
