The Daily Squee: Meet The Saddest Kitten Ever, Soon-To-Be Adorable Internet Star

Sad Kitty

This is the Saddest Kitten Ever, who has yet to be given an official stage name but will surely be the interwebs’ next favorite feline. Grumpy Cat may look cranky, but this kitty looks downright sad. Her human, Ashley Herring, assures us that Saddest Kitten Ever has a wonderful life of kitty bliss, but that doesn’t seem to change her permanently pouty expression. Overnight stardom has fallen into the sad kitten’s lap, with over 370,000 views of her picture on Imgur in just three days. Are those dollar signs I see in those big blue sad eyes? It’s only a matter of time before the interviews with Anderson Cooper and customized t-shirts with this kitty’s face on them turn up. Herring is asking fans for stage name ideas, and names like Bojangles, Nugget, Meowancholia, and Happy have been suggested so far. Meh, I think we can come up with something cuter than that. Watch out celebrity cats, you have some competition! [Refinery 29; Daily Mail UK]

Cats & Nail Art? The Internet Might Explode

Squeedorable calico cat Pudge is far and away the world’s best Internet cat and that is not up for discussion. So you can imagine my thrill that Pudge and her human now have a DIY series on YouTube called “Pudge It Yourself!” The first DIY is cute kittycat nail art, which work like temporary tattoos. All you need is a printer, adhesive paper scissors, and light nail polish colors. If you don’t own a printer, you can also get your Pudge nail art decals for $5 straight from the Pudge store. Yes, there’s a Pudge store. [YouTube]

The Daily Squee: Watch This Old Footage Of Lil Bub When She Was Even Lil-er

Lil Bub As A Kitten!

We live in an era when “found footage” of Internet cat Lil Bub is treated as if someone found an old video of Jennifer Lawrence singing in her high school’s production of “The Sound Of Music.” It’s Lil Bub! At eight weeks old! Like all kittens, she is painfully adorable, but most noteworthy to me is that her face isn’t fucked up-looking yet. Like, her tongue is still resting inside her mouth normally. The tongue protrusion must have happened in kitty adolescence, poor thing.  [YouTube]

Keeping Cats As Pets Began 5,000 Years Ago

It might be hard to believe, but cats weren’t always domesticated pets. Once upon a time, someone actually invited these tyrants into the house and the rest, as they say, is history.

According to recent findings, the first wild cat (or what we now call a stray) began hanging out with humans maybe over 5,000 years ago. While excavating a Stone Age village in China, researchers have found the earliest evidence of cats and humans — their first step in becoming the pets (and Internet stars) we love today.

10 Reasons Internet-Famous Cats Are Better Than Real Cats — In GIFs!

reasons internet cats are better than real cats

It’s a daily habit that has turned into a daily ritual: I settle onto the train with my coffee, pull my iPhone from out of my purse, and click open my Instagram app to see what Pudge is up to. Pudge (above) isn’t a friend’s cat or a family member’s cat or even a cat I’ve met in real life. Pudge is an Internet-famous cat. She’s my favorite Internet-famous cat.

I love and always have loved cats — at one point, my parents had nine cats when I was growing up — and even I can admit that sometimes being a pet owner is a pain in the butt. With Pudge, I can look at cute pictures and videos in small doses when I feel like it … and then put my phone back in my purse and not have to deal with anyone clawing at the bedroom door while I’m trying to have sex.

After the jump, here are 10 reasons Internet-famous cats are better than real cats — in GIFs!
