The posting of cat videos is kind of a joke around the nonexistent Videogum water cooler. It’s funny because I don’t really love being around cats (just due to allergies, OMG gross TMI!) but I do love cat videos, and also because it’s funny and weird that posting cat videos is a large part of anyone’s job. I think of the occasional cat video on this site as a service to those who like cute things, but not all the time. Like if Videogum was orange juice, and cute things were pulp, we would be “some pulp.” But in honor of the end of the year, here are the 10 Best Cat Videos that were posted on this site in 2008. There are some controversial choices, in as much as a controversial choice of cat videos can exist, but I re-watched them all, and these were the best ten. Yay for cats:

(Just in case anyone wants to read my original incisive, hard-hitting cat-mmentary (uh-huh, yep), the titles go to the original links.)

10. Peanut Cat: Because he was scary:

9. Broccoli Cat: Because of the Wiccans:

8. Frozen Cat: Because Why?:

7. Slinky Cat: Because we’ve all seen a cat do that:

6. Roomba Cat: Because he just doesn’t give a shit:

5. Lazy Cat: Because he’s me/you/all of us on Fridays or whenever:

4. Tie: Box Cat 1: Because he was gonna need a bigger box:

Box Cat 2: Because they gave him one:

3. Basket Kitten: Because he is me/you/all of us in seventh grade or whenever:

2. Parrot And Cat: Because they are the creepiest/funniest animal comedy team:

1. Christian The Lion: Because DUH:

What a year.

    Because I have seen all of these before, I am suddenly questioning the amount of time I spend watching cat videos. I don’t even like cats in real life. Only in fake life.

    Cat really is the first part of my name.
    I like the lion one but they were kind of stupid because if the lion didn’t remember them he would have attacked them.

  19. My favorite of the Japense “box cat” as you’ve dubbed him, is this one:

    Wait for when he tries to get a drink of water. Cracks me up every time.

    Oh, and thank you for not including Spaghetti Cat.

    If you don’t like these, then don’t bother others that do. Do you think I leave a comment on everything I dislike? Why not just pass over it, and go to something you enjoy.
