All cat people know this already. In this case, we’re talking about the biomechanics of drinking. A high-speed video study on how cats drink came out last year from MIT. Not to be outdone, Harvard has now used X-ray video to show that dog lapping is pretty much the same, only messier. Both species use the adhesion of liquid to the tongue to drink — no scooping.
