Cats drinking from taps are the best new entertainment online
‘He’s trying his best.’
A video of a cat’s futile attempts to drink water from a tap has inspired other pet owners to come forward with their own feline drinking problems.
The mog that started it all off is Dusty, whose brave lapping at nothing but air as water pours past him has been viewed millions of times.

“I think the lesson we can take away is that even when things aren’t going our way perseverance is important,” cameraman Wilfried told the Press Association.
Dusty is owned by the family of the Harvard student’s girlfriend Sophie.
“He’s been doing this thing with the water since he was little,” added Wilfried, from Noorvik, Alaska. “It’s apparently somewhat of a bad habit for him now, as he will leap onto the sink and meow at anyone nearby until they turn the faucet on.”
Wilfried said the best way people have been reacting to the viral post is by replying with their cats doing the same thing, and these seven of the best responses are testament to that.
