Top 7 viral cats of the year

Posted on December 27, 2012 by

1. Tard the Grumpy Cat

You haven’t lived life to the fullest until you have discovered Tard, aka Grumpy Cat. Grumpy Cat was possibly the most popular cat on the Internet this year, and I doubt she will be leaving our computer screens anytime soon. Grumpy Cat is mostly known for her deathly gaze, which has unfortunately turned into a bunch of crude memes. Although Tard appears to be really angry all the time, I’m sure on the inside is a warm little soul.

2. Henri le Chat Noir

Henri le Chat Noir is a French cat who poses his incredibly deep thoughts on the world. A Youtube sensation, the cat has become a symbol of sad cats to stare out of windows and contemplate the perils of both human and cat life.

3.  Colonel Meow


Colonel Meow is pretty much the Justin Bieber of the cat world. Not only does he have an incomparable hairdo, but he has all oft he internet swooning. Maybe not in the same ways as Biebs, but their fan following is admirable.

4. Skydiving Cats

Firm Folksam caused an uproar with their controversial commercial featuring skydiving cats. The Internet had a mixed reaction to the ad — most thought it was cute and creative while others saw it as cruel to put cats up to such a task. Of course, the cats weren’t actually forced to sky dive. But the idea of it is pretty scary!

5. Relaxed Kitty

This cat knows how to chill out and enjoy the scenery. I don’t like the idea of putting a cat in an awkward position like this. But the fact that he can sit himself up like that is wicked. The internet fell in love with the relaxing kitty for his “devil may care attitude” and strange skills.

6. Seven PsychoCATS

A satirical take on the film Seven Psychopaths, the Seven PsychoCATS pose as the actors  in a mock-trailer of the film. It’s kind of strange to see cats swearing, which is probably part of their raise to fame. Perhaps these kitties could learn a lesson in innocence from the relaxed kitty.

7. Ninja Cat 

It’s pretty obvious what this cat is known for — total mind-blowing powers. The Ninja Cat is famous for its teleporting powers. This would probably scare me so much I would drop my camera if my cat ever did this.
