(Boston, Massachusetts) - A recent study by four MIT scientists that lasted for three-and-a-half years has now been shown to be a hoax.

"We assumed the cats had no idea we were watching them while they were drinking," said project engineer Broman Stoker. "Unfortunately for us, the cats knew what we were up to the entire time and were just elaborately playing with our minds."

According to the initial findings that were discovered by using high-speed photography, cats appear to drink by rapidly moving their tongues upward and coaxing water molecules across the divide by delicately controlling the fluid dynamics.

Stoker: "We have since learned that it was all an optical trick that the cats were knowingly playing on us. It was just a diversion to distract us from the leftovers on the counter that they were collectively poaching."

Perhaps not surprisingly, a team of cats also recently presented their findings on the gullibility of human beings in a leading feline scientific journal.
