Er, cats love rushing water; often they won't drink water unless it's moving. That's why they make those recirculating water dishes, and why some kids (esp. older sick ones) only drink when you put them in an empty tub and run a small stream of water from the faucet.

So this video is only cool inasmuch as the cat figured out how to flush. Go cat.

Er, replace "some kids" with "some cats". And no, I don't give my kids water by putting them in the tub.

I was amused... The cat seems very focused on his task.

> In other news, a sheep attacks a swing.

Too bad you can't put a memory on youtube. I once had an ultrasound-actuated garage door that a mockingbird learned to open. Sad to spoil its fun but at least I put in a radio-frequency opener instead of shooting and eating the ortolan. If it ever happens again (unlikely since I presently don't even have a garage and all the birds do to the car is [splat] on it) I promise to run grab ye olde wireless webcam.

I have a bird that hops in the washer when I fill it up to wash. She thinks its her own personal bath.

Apart from drinking purposes, as davejay said, a lot of cats love watching and playing with moving water. I used to have one that liked to bat at the water in the sink as it came out of the faucet. That cat tried everything to try and move that faucet handle and get the water to come out. I think he could've done it if he'd had opposable thumbs.

Oh why oh why is that sheep attacking a swing? WHY? My mind is being boggled...

To be honest, you can't complain. I mean, that FPP made a statement, and -delivered- on it.

-I- enjoyed it. :P

I think you sophisticates are underestimating its meme potential. The toilet is the clincher!

I love cats. You haters clearly don't understand.

He's crazy. I think we have a problem. Too true, but what's the cat got to do with it?

This is the best thread ever on MeFi. The sheep gave it just that little extra push...

That poor crazy sheep.

Here's a cat that destroys a roll of tp in 39 seconds by the way.

oops. (Sorry about that).
posted by dog food sugar at 8:09 PM on August 9, 2006


Yeah. Our kitten loves watching water going down the drain in the tub. As soon as he hears the shower turn off he'll run in to the bathroom to get a peek.

I want that mutherfucking cat off the mutherfucking toilet!

At the moment I'm at an undisclosed location which is impervious to flushing cats. Please continue posting your replies to this thread so that it will still be in the top twenty comments on the front page of this website, so that when I get home and can access video and audio, I'll remember to click on it and watch it. I'm sure it will be worth the wait. Doesn't matter what you talk about of course. Either cats or toilets. Just please stay on topic. Thank you.

Wow, that cat sure can - um - flush that toilet, can't he?

So this cat... it flushes?

I am a better person for having seen this.

The highlight for me was when the kitty started teething on the handle. I could have done without the female voice narrating the event. What this video needs is Mike Nelson.
