Mokkun, an 8-year-old male cat in Shunan, Yamaguchi Prefecture, has become a local celebrity after acquiring the skill of drinking water from a watering can while standing on his hind legs, with one of his paws placed softly on the spout.

Amid the hot spell, the white feline of mixed breed sometimes drinks for as long as nearly a minute like that, prompting neighbors and passers-by to take pictures to capture his ”cool” style of drinking.

According to his owner Takanori Ishimura, a 67-year-old dance instructor, Mokkun started drinking water like that about three years ago when Ishimura was watering plants.

Mokkun’s face gets thoroughly soaked with water while drinking from the can. ”He doesn’t mind that at all, even though he’s pretty grumpy on rainy days,” Ishimura said with a laugh.
