“Cats always seem to come out on top, no matter what they are doing, or pretend they do!” –B. Webster
Dogs are natural comedians. No matter what they are involved in they seem to bring a near slapstick theater to their performance. Cats, on the other hand, are so superior in their attitude with a deliberate elegance in their purpose that when things do not go according to their master plan, the results are hilarious.
My picks below are listed in no particular order. Enjoy!
16 Funniest Cat Videos… Ever
Two Kittens Running on the Treadmill
Being on the road to nowhere doesn’t seem to bother this buff pair of Burmese cats. They are logging time to stay in purr-fect condition.
Just a little more training and this fellow could be an NBA standout! Maybe the Bobcats could use a good guard.
Rolling Down the Stairs
Who says staying in shape requires high-tech equipment? This kitty manages a self-styled Stairmaster workout with fine-tuned precision.
Cat Tries to Jump Over Baby Gate
Finally, all the training is about to pay off. The sweet, sweet thrill of VICTORY!
The next set of videos feature the most expressive of the feline funnies. Who says the art of communication is lost?
What Is This Cat SAYING?
You do not have to be fluent in “Cattish” to understand this pretty tabby’s language. “More, more, more, more… ahhh-MORE!”
Always tell your story with conviction! This YouTube sensation has logged more than 16 million hits. For the record, Choco the cat had a dislocated jaw.
Crazy Demon Cat Talking
“Lots of chocolates for me to eat! / Lots of coal makin’ lots of heat / Warm face, warm hands, warm feet / Oh, wouldn’t it be lovely?” This aspiring thespian could use a Professor Higgins, but really — did Eliza Doolittle have it this tough? All she wants is the chocolate!
Boots Vs. Toilet Paper
There is an old saying: “No job is finished until the paperwork is done.” This honorable plumber kitty at least gets a merit badge for trying.
Move over Billy the Exterminator. You may go after big reptiles, bats, rats and roaches (plus you wear a cool hat), but these supreme exterminators EAT their kill. See what that does for the ratings.
Cat Alarm Clock
“Wake up, wake up, wake up. This is your last warning — WAKE UP! Don’t make me come in there!”
If you have ever had to battle a despicable printer, the next video will hit home. Watch as the office kitty repairs the paper dispenser — for good.
The video of Charlie Schmitd’s keyboard-playing cat (“the Coolest Cat in the World”) not only spawned dozens of copycats; it also garnered more than 23 million YouTube views.
Even kitties start somewhere learning how to play nice, getting along with others, yada yada yada. Of course these guys may never graduate the “Patty Cake” stage of development.
