5 Most Famous Internet Cats

With the risk of uttering the most uttered sentence in the history of the world: the Internet is for cats. You just need to open your Internet browser and within seconds after doing that you are bombarded with pictured and videos of cats. Cute cats, Kitler cats, small, big, cats with unique and adorable markings, grumpy cats and happy cats. Did you know that there are more pictures shared with cats that there are selfies? So it’s official, we like cats more than we like ourselves! In today’s article we’re going to take a look at 6 of the most famous internet cats; the rock stars of the Internet as they should be called.

1. Nyan Catnyan cat famous internet cats

Every Internet user must watch the video of Nyan Cat from start to finish! It’s just one of those things that need to be done. The video features an animated cartoon cat which flies through space and leaves a rainbow trail behind it. The song, though, is what makes it worth its bucks. We can’t imagine why Nyan Cat was such a huge success, but it was and still is. It averages over 35 million views a year and it gets every 7 dislikes for every 100 likes. It’s so bad, it’s good!

Within a few months, Tard was appearing on TV and was tweeting.  The cat now has a talent agent, a clothing line and even some awards, such as Buzzfeed’s 2013 Meme of the Year.

3. Business Catbusiness cat famous internet cats

Business Cat is the most famous Internet cat with a job. He mixes office jargon with cat behavior and hilarity ensues. The top line is something a human boss would say and the bottom line is something a feline would enjoy. His name is Emilio and he is a black tabby cat who is wearing a tie. The tie was bought by his owner’s girlfriend for Christmas and the photo was uploaded on Reddit. The rest was history.

4. Happy CatHappy Cat famous internet cats

Happy cat may not be so famous not, or even all that recognizable, but if it weren’t for Happu Cat, there wouldn’t be any LOLCats and no ICanHasCheezburger website. We think that without Happy Cat the Internet wouldn’t be such a happy-friendly cat. Can you imagine such a world, because we can’t? The photo started circulating the web in 2003, when the photo of Frank, a mascot for a Russian cat food company was uploaded on Something Awful. In 2007 an unknown web user added the line “I can has cheezburger? You know what happened after.

5. Henri, Le Chat Noirhenri famous internet cats

Henri is a gorgeous tuxedo cat that is one of the biggest YouTube stars in the world. The videos were created by his owner, Willian Braden. It all started when he had to create a film noir for a class project and he thought of using his cat to do it. The videos are black and white, and in them, Henri (whose real name is Henry) bemoans his fate of being an indoor cat, explores his existential crisis and reveals his contempt for his fellow cat housemate.

6. Maru the CatMaru the Cat famous internet cats

Each YouTube video of Maru has an average of 800,000 views. Maru has a deep love for boxes. Mugumogu recently adopted another cat, Hana.

10 Moments in a Cat’s Christmas Holiday You Shold Be Ready For

Now every year it is the same thing for us when we’re getting ready to welcome the Christmas holidays’ spirit: we like to have our family and friends around, to get our loved ones nice, meaningful gifts, to cook the best dishes possible, to enjoy a few days off and relax after a year’s hard work. Together with us, our pets get some special treatment too. Except for cats. There are some moments in a cat’s Christmas Holiday that really questions both our mental sanity and theirs.

Why do we say that? Well, because we also developed a less “traditional” fashion, that of decorating not only the trees, the house, the office and practically everything that is suitable to bear some Christmas lights and some decorations on, but it seems we have an almost sadistic pleasure of tormenting our pets during the holidays, the complaints that Grumpy Cat has made its voice heard in all corners of the Internet, and it usually doesn’t say pretty things (but on the contrary, quite offensive). We’re not sure people truly understand the cats’ displeasure with their owners’ fascination to ridicule them and force their hand to seek vengeance and use curse words after, but to show our appreciation towards these very smart pets, we will present you with ten moments in a cat’s Christmas holiday that should make you think twice before pulling some prank on them.

In the words of memorable Ed Stark…

the cats are coming

First of all…

They don’t seem too happy with us playing too many Christmas songs too loud. Or they just hate Christmas altogether. Grumpy may have more details for you in this regard

Secondly…

It’s a tradition in all houses to welcome the holidays in a clean body, with a clean spirit. But let’s face it, some cats really hate you for even thinking to give them a necessary bath, especially during these awful times, when they are stressed enough already.

But you ain’t seen nothing yet, as they know what’s coming, and you should too

You have to admit the cats have a point. Every year is the same and every year you don’t learn anything and you keep making the same mistakes over and over again.

And yet, they are kind creatures who will not ruin your holidays until you push them to. So another warning is always issued before they really get into action…

Lesson to be learned

gay apparel

Still not getting it? Then it’s time for some serious, hard-way lessons. And a come back that you should have been aware of!

That’s it! You’re getting punished!

But wait, human, because they know how to get away with it!

Don’t for a second believe their desperate cries for help when you catch them red handed…

Of course the little one is sorry and of course it ended up there by a complete unimaginable awful accident that even Newton or Einstein couldn’t explain. Of course.

Just take a look around the corner after you forgave it for trashing the tree

blame the doggies

See what it did there?

Trust us when they say this to you, all cats think in the same way…

blame the dog

There’s only one way to punish them for what they did to your Christmas tree and house in general…

Let them outside the house!

Yeah, the problem is that some of them seem to like it enough to mistake it for some mood enhancer that will actually make them more… flexible to the Christmas spirit and more willing to give you a chance and not ruin it completely for you…

And they actually might consider make you a nice surprise

joy to the world

But there are moments in a cat’s Christmas holiday…

when all it needs are some moments of peace and quiet. And admit it, after all these emotions you’ve been through, you kinda need the same thing…

Now we hope you understood a few things about how you should spend the season together with your cat so you could avoid some of the worst moments in a cat’s Christmas holiday and in yours too.

50 Pictures of Cats in Hats

We all know of Dr. Seuss’ classic children’s book “The Cat in the Hat.” Featuring a mischievous cat clad in a red and white-striped hat, it is and always has been a widely cherished piece of family-friendly literature, beloved since its first publication in 1957 and  turned into a full-length feature film in 2003 starring Mike Myers as the titular feline. Did you know that Myers was nominated for Worst Actor at the Razzies for the film? The film itself was nominated for Worst Picture, Worst Director, Worst Supporting Actor, Worst Supporting Actress, Worst On-Screen Couple and Worst Excuse for an Actual Movie. It only won the last one. You’d think it’d win all of them, really. God, that movie was lousy…

Anyway, what were we talking about? Oh yeah, cats in hats. So, I’ve collected 50 (that’s right – fifty!) images of cats in hats from all four corners of the silly part of the interwebs. We’ve got all kinds of hats here: bowler hats, top hats, cowboy hats and wizard hats. All sorts of cats too: Siamese cats, ginger cats, pussycats, erm, those black ones… So, scroll down, look at the pictures, observe them, soak them in and possibly even laugh at them (y’know, if you’re into that kinda thing). Now if you don’t mind, I’m going to go throw darts at a picture of Mike Myers’ stupid face. You ruined my childhood, Myers! You ruined it… [Read more…]

Stuff On My Cat: A Review

Ever since the advent of lolcat-popularising weblog I Can Has Cheezburger? in early 2007, funny felines have become a widely beloved sensation of the world wide web. Yes, thanks to ICHC’s side-splitting hilariousness, humorous videos of comical cats now fill the comedy corridors of YouTube; priceless pictures of knee-slapping kittens decorate the hallways of flickr and twitpic; even the App Store has taken advantage of the cat-loving craze, with iPhone app CatPaint allowing users to seamlessly insert cats into photographs with the prod of a finger.

One site of many that should raise the interest of cat lovers the world over is Stuff on My Cat, a picture-based blog featuring items submitted by the site’s users. Launched in 2005, it exists to showcase images of cats with – get this, right – stuff on them. This “stuff” could be anything: it could be a cowboy hat, a toy car, a toddler, a slice of toast or, as you can see above, a rainbow-tinted afro. And it’s not restricted to just one measly object being placed on your cat – no no, you can have several objects on your cat, as one user did when, rather interestingly, placing a banana and toilet roll on their puzzled little pussycat.
