Leftover of cat

Sayyidah Kabshah bint Ka'b ibn Malik (RA) wife of the son of Sayyidina Abu Qatadah (RA)
narrated," Abu Qatadah visited us and I poured out water in a vessel for ablution he may
make. A cat came and began to drink it. He tilted the vessel for it till she drank her fill. He
saw me looking at him and asked if I was surprised. When I said that I was, he said that
Allah’s Messenger (SAW) had said that it was not impure (or unclean) and it is one of
those that go round us.
[Ahmed22591, 2264]
