Highly Evolved Cat Figures Out How to Scale Refrigerator to Get ‘Turnt on Fresh, Crisp Water’

Well damn, Milo.

Jenna Stoyanov is a 19-year-old college student who describes herself as “embarrassingly obsessed with cats.” So while she’s away from home studying journalism at the University of Texas at Austin, her mom sends her plenty of photos of her cats — Milo and Foster — back home. This week, Milo learned how to scale the family’s refrigerator to lap water out of the in-door dispenser. A feat which Stoyanov’s mom managed to get a picture of, prompting her to post a now-viral tweet. (Stoyanov’s picture of Milo has been retweeted over 39,000 times and counting.)

“He jumped from the ground and we didn’t see him do it. I looked up and was like WHAT???? I just happened to have my phone in my hand, and took the picture before I yelled at him to get down,” Stoyanov’s mom told her about seeing the cat clinging to the front of the fridge. She guesses Milo hung on for about a minute and a half. “He probably would have stayed for a long time if my mom didn’t yell at him,” she told Select All. “If my mom catches him again, she’ll probably put the fridge on child lock so it won’t dispense anymore,” Stoyanov said. “But other than that, I don’t think there’s anything else we can do.”
