It's Official the Web is Obsessed with Us Kitties


Did you see the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly (the 8/7/09 issue to be exact)? It has a long article by Benjamin Svetkey about us kitties. The article tells how YouTube viewers are obsessed with us. If you are a kitty and are on YouTube, you're a star.

It's only a matter of time before we rule Twitter as well. Here are some highlights from the article. For full impact, get a copy and have your food human read it to you.

1. Nora, a wonderful tabby, plays piano. Her videos have received over 20,000,000 hits. Wow!

2. The article also says that we (again, kitties on YouTube) are becoming a "full-blown pop culture craze." As a kitty, I don't really understand this "culture craze" stuff, but I'm pretty sure it's a good thing.

3. The article concludes that the kitties are far in the lead -- ahead of other species, (like dogs HEE HEE -- apologies to all my canine pals. Max loves ya).

Reasons for those conclusions...

The article says our popularity stems from the fact that we are cute, we are like infants, and we are intelligent. Do you agree?

* Do you have a favorite YouTube video? Comments welcome from felines and canines....


A Note from Max: Special thanks to my pal Elliot. He's a fine pooch and is my main source for this article and for information from the entertainment world. And thanks, too, to his food human, my Aunt Penny, who forked over the money for the magazine.
