This video proves cats are slowly evolving and becoming one of us. In no time, I predict these four-legged creatures will be standing on two legs and conquering the world with their long term plans of world domination. It might be true, or it might be because I recently watched Planet of the Apes. Either way, let’s consider their anthropomorphism as adorable while we can.
While cats have proven to be naughty, vicious and lazy, there are some cats who just want to help out. In this video, these poor kitties just want to know what’s wrong with the wallpaper. Bothered by the rip, these two cats continuously jump at the wall to fix its minor imperfection. Animals, they’re stubborn…just like us!
Either this cat has spent a lot of time watching birds from outside his window, or he was a parrot in his past life. If I’m not mistaken, that is definitely not a “meow” coming out of it’s mouth..it might be some type of language from another planet. Either way, this kitty can definitely be the Oprah in cat world with those pipes.
Why can’t all cats be this encouraging?
I’m pretty sure if I attempted to give my cat Farley a shower he would retreat to his army tank shaped bed, stare at me definitely and silently attack at night, when I least expect it. That’s my frame of reference for how much cats enjoy any sort of water-based activities so I can confirm that I was surprised when I saw this cat enjoy his shower.
The furry feline, named Leviathan, apparently loves to be washed when it’s 35 degrees outside. Her owner writes on YouTube: “She just stands still and basically asks for that beneath the bathtub.”
My headline “which cat is the bigger jerk?” is misleading, because clearly 99.9 percent of all the fluffy felines in this world are assholes. Even my cat Farley (above) is one of the most unfriendly creatures I’ve come across (but I still love him). For example, every time I try to hug him he uncomfortably squirms out of my loving embrace — biting my forearm if he feels it’s necessary — runs to a corner and starts cleaning himself like my arms were covered in mud and disease. As he cleans himself he glares at me with utter distaste and superiority.
Anyway, these two cats are similarly inclined toward a rebellious nature. Our competitors in this battle are Teddy and Loki (of course). Who do you think is the bigger jerk?
Competitor One: Teddy knocks things over just ’cause
Competitor Two: Loki likes his space
Loki reigns supreme in this battle. While Teddy puts up a fierce fight, he only knocks over one medicine bottle, whereas Loki is unstoppable.
AW! This 3 week old kitty literally fits in the palm of its owner’s hands and boy is he hungry. If there’s one thing you should know about small animals (and children) it is to never take away their food. The poor thing did NOT appreciate the teasing and went a little ballistic when the bottle was taken away. I just can’t help to be distracted but the kitten’s cuteness. BRB going to adopt a cat.
This home video perfectly describes my friendship with my former roommate. Whenever I was suffering from chronic boredom or had excess energy, I’d trespass into her bedroom and bug her for hours. At first, it was just silly but soon I began testing her patience. She insisted that she never got annoyed with annoying people because she grew up with two rambunctious younger brothers. “You could never beat them,” she bargained. It was like a test. And thus, I Animorphed into a creature quite like this bird. The dark period in my life proved two things 1. Give up on a lost cause early or else you’ll be the crazy person trying to annoy a roommate by dancing in costume 2. Sabrina has a will of steel.
Nothing to see here people. It’s just a cat wheeling a trolley. While you gush over your cat Mr. Flufferpants being so adorable when he sleeps and snuggles (because that’s basically all he does) just remember that your cat probably can’t push a trolley.
Meanwhile in Russia….
When I first heard about the Internet Cat Video Film Festival, I’m pretty sure my entire body froze and I shot into cotton candy clouds like a rocket fuelled on rainbow sparkles. Well that’s how I felt inside but I actually looked more like this:
Finding and watching cat videos is a favourite pastime of mine. Even after I finish hunting for them at andPOP, my cat-obsessed friend and I share our faves via Gmail, like two old cat ladies who collect kitten paraphernalia (I don’t actually because that would be CRAY).
As andPOP previously reported, Minneapolis is holding a cat video film festival on Aug. 30 as part of Open Field, the Walker Art Gallery’s summer project. You can vote for your fave videos until July 30 online. While I don’t want to sway any of you in a particular direction, these are some of my personal faves. Share yours under the comment section!
Five classic cat videos:
Most dramatic: Angry cats dubbed (aka you will snot laugh)
Best action: Kitty Corlis “Grinding the Crack” Read more…
This scrappy kitten clearly doesn’t understand how small he is in comparison to this doberman dog. Either that, or he’s just got a lot of guts. Seven-week-old Pancake the kitten loves to wage war against two-year-old Sugar Tree the Doberman. The energetic cat claws and bites his “friend,” who 1) looks like he’s had enough of the shenanigans and 2) looks like he could tear through steel.
The owner is fostering the cat for a friend after he was found abandoned in a hot parking. Whatever you do though, don’t show Sugar Tree this recording. As the owner camelsandfriends says on YouTube he ”is probably embarrassed that I’m uploading this video… ; )”
I’ve never really thought of my cat as boring — I’d say indifferent, apathetic and independent are better words to describe Farley. Still, if you want to supercharge your cat why not try this special new toy called XLR8? All you have to do is attach the motion-activated device to your cat and bingo, he’ll sound like an expensive sports car wherever he goes. That way your lazy good-for-nothing cat will be much more exciting when he’s not doing anything… which is pretty much all the time.
Henri the Existential Cat might be a little less depressed with his unbearable circumstances when he realizes true love has found him. Existential feline Anais Mittins recorded an open love letter to Henri, chronicling her quest to find him. Although she has a satisfactory life and a partner who appreciates her freedom and love of literature, she still finds herself yearning for Henri and scouring the streets to find him.
I think he finally found his match!
Here is one cat to rule all the famous cats on the internet. He stands stoically and proudly atop his owner’s couch cushion. Ruler of Keyboard Cat, Maru and Henri the Existential Cat. Ruler of the world.
As if her first day wasn’t hard enough, WXMI Fox 17′s Nicole DiDonato was interrupted by a stray cat during the live newscast. In the middle of her report, a grey cat jumped on her back and clawed her way up her shoulders. The reporter goes through a mixture of confusion and sheer terror, before she decides to ignore the cat altogether and go on with her newscast (she’s a pro).
Unfortunately, now she’s always going to be known as “the girl who had a cat attack her on her first day.” Watch it here.
I have two very different cats. Earl Grey of Gloucester is the most loveable cat and would gladly put up with any drunken tendencies that would result in THIS. Farley on the other hand, is a cynical, existential cat that feels he’s above being called Mr. Fluffy or friendly embraces.
If this guy attempted to hug Farley while singing Seal’s “Kiss From a Rose” I’m pretty sure he’d get a declawed swipe to the neck. Still, this dude is hilarious and he actually maintains pretty good pitch while being drunk — though the cat clearly disagrees. Slow clap everyone, slow clap.
“Look at this cat. Look how adorable he is. He is so cute. He’s going to be on YouTube.” Some wise words from Chris, described as the youngest commentator on YouTube. He’s basically going to be a future cat video aficionado. But please, someone please help this cat! He’s adorable but looks so SAD.
