Thumbs up hooking up extra electrical circuits

not sure if this is the right forum spot for this question but i was just wondering if it is safe to hook into the existing receptacle that my gas water heater is plugged into to run five other receptacles off of that single receptacle that is only being used for the water heater. it uses a 15 amp breaker and all wiring is 14/2

Five additional receptacles? What do you have in mind plugging into these additional receptacles? Are you sure that this is the ONLY receptacle (any lighting?) on this circuit?
