Happy to help: The adorable cat proves that kittens can clean up after themselves
Anyone who has tried to train a kitten to use a litter tray knows that cats don't always clean up after themselves.
Most cats also run away at the first sight of water and there certainly aren't many who would rather work than take a nap.
But a hilarious video posted on the internet shows that at least one feline enjoys doing the most mundane of household chores - the washing up.

Elbow grease: The cat paws away at the dish in an apparent attempt to scrub it clean
The 54-second clip shows a cute cat sitting in a sink with the tap running.
As the water falls into a dish, the animal paws away at it in an apparent attempt to scrub it clean.
And as if to prove it isn't afraid of water, the cat occasionally looks away to take a drink from the tap.
After scrubbing away for about 40 seconds, the cat looks up towards its owners, who filmed the amused routine.
Internet star: The clip has proved to be a hit on the video-sharing website YouTube since it was posted 12 days ago.
The owners can be heard chuckling while the dish is cleaned.
But the cat doesn't touch the other plates in the sink, which are also sitting dirty.
