    No... I feel very much the opposite of that whenever I do, especially after watching the last 15 seconds of that video. 🙈

  • The internet was invented solely for sharing cat videos and pictures. History books say it was invented by the military, but it was really just invented to share videos of military cats.

  • I love watching cat videos. They make me happy when I am sad and they make me even more happy when I am happy to. To all those that hate cats so much remember they are the world's most popular pet and it is said that cats have a good affect on human health. Cats have so much to offer, those that hate cats don't know how to socialise with them.
