We could all learn a thing or two from this cat, who stared at adversity (a spray can of water, in this case) in the face and refused to bow down. Spraying pet cats with water is a well-known method to discipline and train them.
Unfortunately, it doesn't always work.
A hilarious video that has gone viral online shows one pet owner squirting their cat with water. Instead of walking away chastised as it is supposed to, this defiant cat simply opens her mouth to slurp up the water. If this isn't the definition of genius, we don't know what is.
"This punishment is not working..." wrote the Twitter account Mr Meowgi while sharing the video.Take a look at the hilarious clip below:

The video has collected over 2.6 million views in less than 15 hours of being posted on Twitter, and the number continues to grow. It has also garnered thousands of comments and retweets, a lot of them from other pet owners showing how their cats react to punishments:
