My toddler thinks there is nothing better in this world than a cat video. I’m not sure what the inventors of YouTube were thinking when they created their glorious video sharing site; but I doubt it was that the world needed hundreds of thousands of cat videos. They were solving a problem they didn’t even know existed.
Cat videos never get old in our house, at least for the mini-me versions of the adults. If my toddler is cranky, I just need to type in “cats” on my YouTube iPhone app and I know that within minutes he’ll be laughing and screaming with joy over the “ki-kis.” Cat videos are like the toddler version of prozac. They make everyone feel better.
Oakland is hosting an Internet Cat Video Festival on May 11th for all cat video lovers. The art and video festival benefits the East Bay SPCA. There will be cat-enthused vendors and art prior to the screening. The festival is presented by the Great Wall of Oakland, the large-scale urban projection installation in the heart of Oakland’s Uptown. Tickets are on sale now, $10 for adults and $5 for teens/kids 16&under.
