More proof, ladies and gentlemen, that cats are much more intelligent than we give them credit for.
Two-year-old Milo, who lives with his humans in New Brunswick, Canada, is determined to get himself a drink.
“At first we didn’t know why there was water all over our kitchen floor but quickly learned it was him the whole time,” Milo’s humans wrote. “He’s very smart and learns a lot from watching us do it so often. He likes going outside and learned that he has to turn the doorknob to go outside and learned how the window opens by turning the handle. Though he fails every time because he has paws but still likes to try.”
If only his arms were long enough to hold the button down while he sticks his head beneath the dispenser! He even tries flooding the bottom by holding the button for several seconds. Someone get this kitty a bowl!
Or he could ask his humans to get the model below, which makes it easier on the paws:
This cat has a similar model and uses it to drink directly from the dispenser, as well as to flood the basin:
