This silly cat thinks she has to drench her whole head to drink water

Multitasking or stubbornness? You decide.

Maybe you can’t teach an old dog new tricks, but teaching an old cat anything is going to fall on deaf ears.

There’s no logical explanation for why this 15-year-old cat chooses to drink water out of a faucet in such a position that it drenches her entire face in the process. Surely there’s a way to do it that won’t get her soaked every time, or she could always drink from the water bowl like most cats who also hate getting wet more than necessary.

But the feline proves otherwise. She multitasks, drinking up and possibly cooling off on a hot day.

“I don’t know why she drinks like this but she’s 15 and has always done it,” Lisa Hewus wrote in the description.

Fair enough.
