Good to the Last Drop - One Innovative Cat !

I recently posted about our visit to the Book Barn in Niantic, Connecticut, and how fun it was to see several friendly cats roaming around along all the paths leading to books and more books.

One particular cat captured my interest.  There was an open can of cat food that a few cats must have been sharing. Although the can looked empty, this cat was very creative. He apparently felt there was still several good licks left, if he just persisted.

Notice how he dips his paw into the can.

He then checks out his paw to see what's there.


yes, a few good licks were still to be found

All the while, his buddies looked on with interest.
We all know that the early bird gets the worm, don't we?

  1. That is hilarious and adorable. My cat isn't that smart, she's awesome..but not that smart. Actually, it's probably that she is too lazy to go through so much extra work. Spoiled thing! So maybe she is smart...

  4. Probably just showing off for his friends. My cat dips his paw in the water and licks it off, like a raccoon.

  11. Aww, my cat does that too! He also does it with his dry food; he'll grab a bite in his paw and bring it to this mouth.
    Adorable pics!

  16. I love when cats do what this adorable one is doing & used their paw to get at the food! Adorable! Cats don't give up easily when they want something!

    The last photo it looks as if the cats are meeting about the can & discussing it quite seriously...and possibly expecting to see something pop out of it!

  17. And look at the size of him! I suspect he has quite a few tricks for getting food out of a can.
