Me: Alright, are you ready, Hattie?

Hattie: Meow

Me: *sings* ♪ If you’re happy and you know it, say “meow” ♪

Hattie: Mraaow

Me: ♪ If you’re happy and you know it, say “meow” ♪

Hattie: Mrah

Me: ♪ If you’re happy and you know it, and you really want to show it, if you’re happy and you know it, say “meow” ♪

Hattie: *rolls over* Mwraaah!

English language cat confirmed for much more annoying “meow” than adorable cat singing in Portugese

Edit 7/12/15: In honor of this post reaching 200,000 notes, Hattie now has her own blog at hattiecattie

Q. Why can’t we stop watching cat videos? 

A. Because we’ve been brainwashed by our secret feline overlords (duh).

In all seriousness, though, we’ve decided to pursue the answers to some of life’s important questions, like: Why are cat videos so popular? Why are we willing to waste** hours of our lives watching them? And why is Grumpy Cat so grumpy?

Thankfully, some of our favorite writers (Carl Wilson, Elena Passarello, Alexis Madigral, Jillian Steinhauer, Stephen Burt, Matthea Harvey, Kevin Nguyen, and more) have agreed to answer these questions and more in a book called Cat is Art Spelled Wrong, which we’re funding right now through our Catstarter.

A $20 pre-order gets you a copy of the book (with your name inside, disguised in a cat). There are also posters, a kitty totebag, and the opportunity to host the entire Internet Cat Video Festival in your backyard.

Plus, y'know, you’ll be helping make sure the writers are paid well for their work. Kick in for your very own copy today and spread the word by reblogging and sharing the news with your friends!

Cats + Ping-pong = Awesome entertainment

Thanks to this hilarious video compilation we’ve learned that cats are natural-born table tennis pros, or rather they would be if it weren’t for that pesky net that keeps getting in the way. They’re definitely got expert level enthusiasm:
