Let's celebrate cats! And gifs! And cat gifs!

Happy World Cat Day! We owe a lot to cats. Did you know that if it weren't for cats, the internet would be filled with nothing but library catalogues and ads for suspicious medications?

To celebrate cats, (and the divine internet), I've collected my favourite cat gifs OF ALL TIME (i.e. that I've seen so far). And they just so happen to show all the reasons I respect and admire cats:

Cats always get what they want:

They secretly love dogs:

They can twerk:

Cats aren't afraid of anything:

(except bananas):

300-banana.gif

(and balloons):

300-shark.gif

(ok, they're afraid of EVERYTHING):

300-lizards.gif

They are amazing gymnasts:

They think with their heads:

They know how to chill:

And lastly, because LOOK AT THAT FACE:

Want to do your bit for cats this World Cat Day? The best thing you can do for cats is promise to always adopt rather than buying from a pet store or breeder. Why? Because despite how clearly smart and ridiculously adorable they are, thousands of cats are surrendered to shelters every year, and many of them will end up being put down. In fact, 23 cats and dogs are killed every hour. You can help prevent this by clicking here and making the pledge to always adopt.

I'm hoping to adopt a cat from my local pet shelter! His name is Jarrah, he's orange and white, and licks my hand when I pat him! happy

Cats may be cuddly pals and internet memes, but they destroy the environment with efficiency.
They have been called one of the "worst" invasive species. And a new study published today in Nature Communications suggests that cats are responsible for killing several endangered bird species in the United States, and decimating bird populations on islands all over the world. In the US, cats kill as many as 3.7 billion native birds annually, making them a bigger threat to these creatures than buildings, towers, windows, poison, and cars. But there is a solution to the problem.
All cats, even will-fed pet cats, can kill wildlife and do not always bring their prey home. Many animals escape and are left to die a slow and painful death. Any babies in pouches or left in nests will then die of starvation or predation. A captured bird or possum may appear undamaged but, almost certainly, it will die within 36 hours from shock or infection.

Jarrah is an indoor cat. I'm aware of the problem, and as a bird lover, I will not let him outside. Anyway, he's prone to skin cancer if he goes outside.
Studies show that indoor cats are happy cats. happy

Hi Nix You are right that is why we need to educate people who chose to own these lovely animals.  I always had a cat while growing up but was unaware of the plight of our wildlife.  Today I am very much aware and always try to push people to being responsible animal owners.

Before we start blaming cats for killing how many billions of animals are killed each year by humans? useless killing just for the sake of killing? Elephants-rhinos-tigers to near extinction to name a few and for what purpose?  We must all do our part to care for our planet where we live.  All of my adopted/rescued cats have always been indoor kitties, with access to outdoor runs safe for them and their environment.

I have two cats and they have never killed anything on purpose. And by the way its is dogs that go around killing innocent people and kids. I have never seen in the news: "5 year old kid killed by cat" or "people injured by vicious cat"

Sorry, but i think dogs can do better then that. I still like them, but not when they kill people.
