I'm a little behind in my reading (like, a year) and all the cat lovers...

probably already heard about this, but in case you are way behind (or just never saw it), here it is:

I thought it was fun and fascinating, but I find a lot of stuff interesting that has most people doing a quick eye-roll and moving on.

Thanks! I thought that was interesting too and showed it to my son who is taking physics right now.

Cool article! I think my cats might be defective, though. They always end up with wet chins.

My cats are right there with yours. Klaus looks like he sticks his entire face in the bowl. They prefer to drink running water from the bathtub. Roxie hangs on the side of the tub and laps at the drips and lazy Klaus sits in the tub with his mouth open and lets it drip in his mouth.They have a water bowl, but anytime we go into the bathroom they are running to get in the tub and wait for you to turn on the water. weird cats!!!

I haven't been able to brush my teeth without the kitten in the sink since DH brought her home in July '10. She's mostly black and all the toothpaste drips show up very nicely on her back! We don't call her Martha Mayhem for nothing!

My cat Sarah always sticks her paw in before drinking. Not sure if she is checking to see where the water level is or if she is skimming it first!

Mine does that, too.

She's been known to empty the water container by knocking it all out (or tipping it over) and then whining that she has no water.

I take it as a sign of her superior intelligence. I am just not smart enough to figure out why she does these things.

She also prefers to drink water from my glass - it's better than any other water on the planet, I guess.
