I think they mean cats drink like dogs.

My dog drinks from the cat water bowl, and the cats drink from the dog water bowl.... let science explain THAT!

When I find a cat hanging out waist-deep slurping around her own neck, tongue hanging at a cockamamie 84-degree angle while the tail is waving like a bingo-winner at 47 knots per hour on the bottom step of my pool -- then I'll believe you, science.

I've never caught my cats drinking from the toilet. Science is sketchy at best, here

Tongue goes down. Water comes up. You can't explain that!

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

Cats are a bit more dignified.

And I've been drinking like a fish all these years. No wonder everyone keeps telling me to shut up and put on pants.

Apparently they don't leave paw prints inside the bowl, like mine do. I call it midnight at the oasis.

MIT breaks the news on cats, Harvard publishes the follow up research on dogs. Yep, my worldview is confirmed.

PS: You just think that cat is dignified because of the piano jazz, Ad hominem.

So, it's 2011, and science, which can do stem cell stuff, put a man on the moon, and blow up the planet, is just figuring out how a dog drinks????? It's no wonder they can't predict the weather!

My cats drink out of the toilet all the time. It's very frustrating.

On the other hand, perhaps if I had a dog, it would not.

Doesn't your toilet have a lid? I find that cats can't lift toilet lids. And closing the lid makes your bathroom look neater.

My dog drinks like a sailor.

putting out mouth at the surface and sucking, but then we have large cheeks that can form a proper seal. Pigs, sheep and horses have the same ability

is there any human orifice sheep can't approximate?

I don't know, I've never had my cat turn to me, after drinking from the bowl, and have water pouring stupidly out of its jowls while looking plaintively at me with an "Am I a good boy? Please tell me I'm a good boy!" expression on its face.

No, cats drink out of the bowl like they are in a bad prison movie, constantly looking suspiciously around like they are expecting to get shanked.

The Bible says dogs drink differently from cats, so I'm sticking with that.
