I recently read a great article that asked the question: Why does the web love cats? It made me think. I went to YouTube and started looking for cat videos. The majority of them were hilarious. Just search for “funny cat videos” and you will be overwhelmed. I started looking at them while trying to figure out the magic recipe. What makes these videos fun? Why are cat videos even more fun and more easily accessible than dog videos?
Cats are cute, but more importantly, they’re curious. I believe it is thanks to the curiosity and strong spirit of the felines that they provide endless fun material.
Let’s take a look at the top 10 funny cat videos on YouTube.
# 1. The Talking Cat: A kitten in a tuxedo “speaks” in a hoarse voice that sounds too much like a human curse.
# 2. Cat Eats with Chopsticks: This furry guy looks terribly serious as he stands on his hind legs and eats … with chopsticks!
# 3. Cat shower: A kitten drinks water directly from the tap, but between “sips”, it plunges its head under the stream of water.
# 4. Boxing Kitten: An orange tabby watches a boxing match and throws punches in the air.
# 5. The Loud Drinking Cat: All this cat does is dip its paw in a glass of milk and drink loudly.
# 6. Nora / Practice makes purr-fect. A kitten, Nora, rests her head on the piano keys with passion and expression, as she “plays” a tune with her paw.
# 7. Cat Tracker: There’s not much going on in this one except we can watch a cat stalk, like all predators do, and then run away.
# 8. The OMG WTF cat: this one comes with a warning. Don’t watch if you’re feeling cranky.
# 9. Hungry, Hungry Kitten! : What’s up ? I often call hungry cats sharks.
#ten. Surprised kitten: a baby kitten on its back jumps by throwing its four paws in the air while the human makes it jump.
All of these videos will at least put a smile on those who are allergic to cats, literally or figuratively, but in my opinion the best and funniest cat videos always involve a dog. We were all raised on the idea that cats and dogs don’t get along, but for all fans of fun cat videos the secret is out: add a puppy to the mix and you are sure to get a cute if not hilarious video.
One more thing about funny cat videos. They are more likely to go viral!
