The Cat is Back and It's Gonna Be in Trouble

(Photo via.) Remember Gramsci the "intellectual" cat (oxymoron) from a few posts ago? Well, through one of his naked ape emissaries he sent us
this story from the NYT bragging that cats > dogs. What is the article about?

What happens is that the cat darts its tongue, curving the upper side downward so that the tip lightly touches the surface of the water.

The tongue is then pulled upward at high speed, drawing a column of water behind it.

Just at the moment that gravity finally overcomes the rush of the water and starts to pull the column down — snap! The cat’s jaws have closed over the jet of water and swallowed it.

Uh, so, cats drink water. Congratulations. You totally deserve the Nobel Prize in physics or something. We do just fine with our slurpitude.

Oh yes, that's my backsplash on the porch AND the screen. Style points, baby.

I'm so handsomable that I command my ape emissary to write this: "I will do what Gramsci The First could not. All will bow before my handsomableness, and I will rule the world. Apes will fall to their knees and rub my belly, and all the world will be mine (to eat). Muah-ha-ha-ha-ha, ha...*cough* *cough* blegh...hairball." --Gramsci

Different strokes for different folks. They eat water, we slurp it. Big deal. We both get hydrated and that's what counts.

Yuh, we heard about cat drinking on NPR. Sounds kind of moronic to me. Why not just put your whole face in the water bowl like a normal critter.
