How cats drink milk without wetting their chins

by David Catchpoole

Researchers have discovered the precise physical mechanism that enables cats to lap up liquids.1,2 It had earlier been thought that they curled their tongue backwards to make a J-shaped curve, and thus ‘ladle’ the fluid into their mouths. But this latest study shows a cat’s tongue actually performs the equivalent of complex mathematical equations to keep two opposing forces in perfect equilibrium.

If I had known this as a kid, I might’ve had my cat do my math homework for me!

I praise God for His marvelous design, but I still don’t like cats.

That's great news.

Cat's tongue's performs complex mathematical equations.
Licking and calculating at the same time.

Evolutionists never told us about this.
They claim math is a brain activity.
That's the devil's idea.

Maybe Creationists use cat’s tongues to count up all the begets in the Bible to determine the Earth’s true age.

Maybe he never went to drinking class.

Cats don’t know they’re doing math, they are just doing what comes naturally to cats. Silly scientist milking the system for a grant.

The loss is yours. A properly socialized cat is a wonderful companion, and as Delenn said, keeps us from growing too great of an ego.
