Binky Likes Coffee !
Although I put my coffee cup on the floor so I could show you my my cat drinking coffee, there is real truth in this fact: Binky Likes Coffee ! I can't remember exactly when I discovered this fact, but it was many years ago for sure. I usually have two cups of coffee in the morning and as things sometimes happen, I'm occasionally distracted away from my cup.
When Binky was a teenage cat, more than 8 years ago, I left my coffee cup on the coffee table in the living room for some reason or another. Later, I came back into the room to find Binky "drinking" his coffee. Binky drinks his coffee in a unique way. He dips his paw in the cup and his fur absorbs a little coffee and then he withdraws his paw and licks the coffee off. If left to his own devices, he'll take quite a few drinks of coffee. For many years I thought Binky liked the coffee because I use cream, but I later found out, Binky likes Coffee !
A couple of years ago my sister-in-law, Gail, came to visit us from Australia and we were all sitting around visiting in the morning. Gail saw Binky "drinking" coffee from my cup and was truly amazed. She and I agreed Binky probably wouldn't drink her coffee since she doesn't use cream. After a while, we all went outside for a tour of the garden since it was such a nice day. When we returned to the house we discovered Binky "drinking" from Gail's coffee cup. That's when I learned the real truth, Binky Likes Coffee !
