“I sometimes longed for someone who, like me, had not adjusted perfectly with his age, and such a person was hard to find; but I soon discovered cats, in which I could imagine a condition like mine, and books, where I found it quite often.” -- Julio Cortázar, Around the Day in Eighty Worlds
Science recently discovered that when cats drink, they pretty much defy gravity. The tongue barely brushes the surface of a liquid before darting quickly back up, forming a column of water between the moving tongue and the surface of the liquid. Then the cat's jaws snap closed around this column of water, and the cat swallows it. Boom -- a refreshing drink, feline-style.
