The 10 Best Cats Of 2008

By Lindsay Robertson / December 21, 2008

The posting of cat videos is kind of a joke around the nonexistent Videogum water cooler. It’s funny because I don’t really love being around cats (just due to allergies, OMG gross TMI!) but I do love cat videos, and also because it’s funny and weird that posting cat videos is a large part of anyone’s job. I think of the occasional cat video on this site as a service to those who like cute things, but not all the time. Like if Videogum was orange juice, and cute things were pulp, we would be “some pulp.” But in honor of the end of the year, here are the 10 Best Cat Videos that were posted on this site in 2008. There are some controversial choices, in as much as a controversial choice of cat videos can exist, but I re-watched them all, and these were the best ten. Yay for cats:

(Just in case anyone wants to read my original incisive, hard-hitting cat-mmentary (uh-huh, yep), the titles go to the original links.)
