The Most Popular Literary Cat Videos of All Time

On today’s edition of the Morning Media Menu, SocialTimes staff writer Devon Glenn told us about an entire film festival dedicated to the fine art of Internet cat videos at Walker Arts Center’s Open Field in Minneapolis.

Check it out: “While normally viewed alone on a computer screen, our unofficial cat-lady-in-residence invites you to come gather together on the field and LOL in the presence of others as your favorite silly cat videos are projected larger-than-life one after the other.  Experience the joy of a surprised kitten or keyboard cat together. Participate in this experiment that tests the social boundaries of the online community with a live, off-line event as we attempt to gather in physical space and real time to enjoy one of the internet’s most popular phenomena.”

Since this is GalleyCat, we decided to round up the most popular literary cat videos to celebrate the cat-focused festival. All the videos are embedded below, along with the link to the Morning Media Menu episode.
