I know you thought I was just kidding about training my cats to use this, but I wasn’t. Even though I googled it until my fingers hurt, there was no evidence that anyone else had tried this out there (or maybe they tried it and utterly failed like I did. Ahem.), but I just had to. Tired of the River Neville on my kitchen floor every day, I went to PetSmart to give it a try.

But, alas, cats are not hamsters. Not that they aren’t smart enough to learn, mind you, but it is my opinion that they are just SO intelligent and autonomous (take THAT dog lovers!) that they just plain REFUSE to learn. There’s a difference, I swear.

Here are my sad attempts to get them to use a water bottle.

Neville was like, “Yeah, I see that this is a bottle that has water in it…”

Nevie's like, "what the hell is this thing!?"

“…but I’m more interested in my food, thanks.”

Cambie had to get it pointed out to her.

But didn’t do much more than this one sniff on her own.

Oh well. Neville is enjoying his daily splashy pool time in the kitchen and then his drink from the bathroom sink. (Cool water droplets, eh?)

He can drink from a sink, but not a bottle. Why?
