Man, I dislike cats.

The dude at 45 seconds was grievously shortchanged of his moment in the sun. He has an amazingly joyous smile, but he's only on the screen for a tiny bit of time, while the frowny child who reminds me of the frontman for My Chemical Romance is sulking about through half the video!

Also, some of those guys looked pretty uncomfortable snuggling a kitty, which strikes me as a bad sign for their overall potential.

(I still like this video, but you DONT UNDERSTAND. Our shitbeast from hell kitty pissed all over our new bed last week. This is when we discovered our furred satan lover kitty has the bladder capacity of a very large man.)

"Hot Dudes with Kittens." This is either the best or worst thing ever birthed by the Internet.

So . . . the Internet was mounted by a People magazine, then seconds later by one of those cat posters, and then gave birth through heteropaternal superfecundation? That's what I read you to be saying.

Cat hater here, but I just had to stop it to say that whenever my friends and I go out to stupid bars that suck, we always throw the song in this video ("Feel So Good," Chuck Mangione) on the jukebox right as we walk out the door. We call it "Chuck bombing." Also I could beat up every guy in this video.

Thank god for that warning at the beginning... fuckers.

I would've liked it if "and gay men" was also in the warning at the beginning. Otherwise, cuteness! I lol'd throughout the whole video.

The cats seem a lot less into it than the dudes. "Why do we have to share our cute cat videos? The other cats get videos of just them!"

I like hot dudes. I also like kittens. Together, they are an unstoppable force for exploding my ovaries into an ectoplasm of glitter, sunshine, and rainbows.
Added Bonus: Shoes and math.
Doubleplusgood Bonus: Famous guy Easter Eggs. I saw that blonde guy that used to be on Boston Legal. Also, a dude who looks suspiciously like Colin Farrell.

I mean, yeah, eye-rolly, but I enjoyed it nonetheless!

....for some reason I really really wanted to know what the cats were actually thinking of all this.

Some of these guys look so, so uncomfortable... as do the kittens, for that matter. I'd say the proper metric for Mr. Rightness is how desperately the cat is/not trying to get away from its bearer.

Big smiley guy is Kyle XY! With long hair!

Smack the Pony got there first (after a fashion).

I miss StP, such a brilliant sketch show.

blonde guy... Boston Legal

Yes! I noticed him too. But sadly, the only image that remains burned on my retinas is the collage of Magnum PI's eyebrows.

I just watched the video again, and as soon as Chuck Mangione started his brass wailing, my kitty Shackleton literally flew off the bed. Sprouted befurred wings and flew.

But I'm glad I did, because this time I noticed they included a link to a kitten rescue site. Nicely done.

There is something about a guy with a kitten that makes him 100 times hotter than he'd be alone. Seriously, I fell for a guy partially because the first night we really talked there was a kitten outside the bar we were at and he picked it up and nuzzled it and was all sweet and gentle with it. I melted every time I thought of that.

Then 3 years later I found out he was banging every girl he knew and loathed animals. Three years wasted on a below-mediocre dude because of a f***ing kitten.

(for real, though, it was a tuxedo kitten and it was even wearing a little baby blue bow tie!!!)

I'll stick to the lo-fi charm of cuteboyswithcats.net, thanks.

It really doesn't have anywhere near the creativity it would need to be either best or worst. The only thing startling about it is its banality. But yes those were kittens, and some of the men were attractive. Honestly? Cute overload (and the site linked by kzin) does it better.

Way to do precisely nothing to deter me from my conviction that people who don't like cats are wretched people, all. That comment reads like the winning numbers in a game of douchebag bingo.

Weird and sort of stupid, but I laughed the whole way through. Which I really needed, so thanks!

I didn't want to like this, but I really really did. Maybe because I'm married to a hot guy who likes kittens. yummy.

It would have been more successful if it seemed like the guys and the cats actually liked each other, and it wasn't just "generic looking pretty boys barely tolerating cats who really just want to get away from them."

I also think it would have been cooler with burlier, rougher guys. A more defined contrast would have played nicely into the stereotype that cats are a lady pet that men are supposed to hate.





Anyway, this is for the ladies and the gentlemen:

Cute guy with cat. In the shower.

I know I have posted that video before but it seems especially relevant now.

Starts out offensive, as if only "ladies" would appreciate the male form. Whoever wrote this, are they over 70 years old? Then the video itself, the guys don't seem to take it seriously. Cats are awesome. If you don't like them, you don't belong in this video!

Feels So Good made that video. I would have sat through an extra minute or two of those guys grinning like loons to hear the rest of the song. Check out this awesome live version, no kittens though.

Cute guy with cat. In the shower.

Holy crap! That is a hundred and eighty-seven thousand times more awesome than the Hot Dudes with Kittens video I originally posted about. And yes, what's fabulous is the guy's obvious affection for his kitteh -- right down to his exasperated little smile as he steps out of the shower at the end. Thanks for the link.

If I were ever to make a porn video, it would be very much like this. "Oh-ho-ho-ho" indeed.

Being a raging heterosexual who also has a raging allergy to cats, this video did nothing for me whatsoever.

okay then, how about some cute girls with dogs?

elizardbits: "okay then, how about some cute girls with dogs?"

Thanks for caring for my sensibilities.

And, some people's dog's really do look like them.

As a lusty woman who loves both hot men and kitties I have to say that on watching that video my first thought was that those were probably the only pussies those guys would ever be interested in.
posted by essexjan at 7:36 AM on June 24, 2011


I hope those guys don't masterbate

Huh, one or both of my cats fall asleep next to my husband every night. I guess I could make a YouTube video and get rich.
