How does a cat drink water, and how does a dog drink? Scientists have checked who is faster



If dogs and cats competed, who would drink a bowl of water faster, who would be the winner?

  • Interesting facts about cats

If you are the owner of a cat and a dog, you have probably wondered if cats are better at anything than dogs and vice versa. But have you thought about which of these quadrupeds is drinking faster? Namely, if dogs and cats competed, who would drink a bowl of water faster, who would be the winner? How does a cat drink water, and how does a dog drink?

Fortunately, we don't have to check it at all. We are sure that the cat would win. It is scientifically proven. Why? The way cats and dogs drink liquids are completely different. So let's find out why this is so! Using a super fast camera, both species of animals were filmed while drinking. And compared.

How does a cat drink water?

You must have had the sight of a cat drinking several times before your eyes. And what? Exactly nothing, because cats drink so quickly that your eyesight cannot keep up to register all the details. However, scientists made it possible for us to see what our eyes could not perceive on their own. They used quick shots to discover what the drinking process of cats was like.

In various shots, you can see that the cat, while drinking water, pushes the tongue out and does not curl the tip forward, but backward. Using the principle of hydrodynamics, the twisted tip barely touches the surface of the milk, and then very quickly slips the tongue back into its mouth.

Here is a video of a cat drinking milk:

According to research, cats move their tongues at a speed of about 0.9 m / s, using fluid dynamics and physics to optimize tongue lapping and water retention.

What about dogs?

Harvard researchers also used a high-speed camera. According to the shots, the dog opens its mouth, sticks out its tongue, takes water with its tongue like a spoon, pulls it in and closes its mouth. Dogs dipping their tongues in the water cause a lot of splashes and therefore drink less fluids.

Below is a video showing how dogs drink water:

It cannot be denied that the feline way is more effective. After all, at the same time, the cat drinks more water.
