Contrary to popular belief, cats can make great DJs. It's just a small sample, but it's nice to see him really get into it as the set progresses.

What are you taking about? Who do you think invented scratching?

It's like Metafilter doesn't want me to do anything today.

Sigh.

Man, that cat looks pissed off. I think it will soon make it very clear to its companion how he feels about being used for a DJing video...

Maybe he could hook up with Keyboard Cat and Buckethead and make a sort of Praxis spin-off?

WAVE YOUR PAWS IN THE AIR LIKE YOU JUST DON'T CARE

This is going to give Yorvit even more ideas. (He really, really liked that kittens on turntables video.)

I foresee an epic battle between DJ Whiskers and DJ Roomba. (Or his ghost.)

Let's not rewrite history here... perhaps the original will help make sense of this piece. The timing may very well be an urban reaction to that soulless product of white flight -- keyboard cat.
Its funny because he got a ghetto beard
Have truer words ever been spoken?

That isn't dubstep! I sometimes feel really bad for all the cats, they amuse us so and get very little in return. The newest cat meme is good guy cat aka cool cat craig.

Actually I don't know what it is. Just figured I would get the fight started.

What the hell are you talking about? They get free food, free shelter, they mostly lay around all day, and someone cleans up their shit. If only I were so lucky.

3 out of 4 of those things can be found in federal prison. I am just saying.

That isn't dubstep!

I can tell by the time signature and by having heard a few dubsteps in my time.

And when that cat loses his touch and can no longer get the ravers to pack the floors, it's off to the cannery!

Oh sure, they get those things. In exchange for their dignity? Have they no right to self determination? This whole thing sounds like cat socialism to me!

You are one up on me, I am going by all the stuff I half remember from the dubstep thread last week.

As a peace offering here is a picture of a kitty and a bunny hugging.

Kick off litter pebbles, let them clump in the box
Listen to the Jam Master as he spins and rocks
His name is Kitteh and he's on his way
To be the best DJ in the US of A

C-A-T are the letters of his name
Skritching and scratching are the aspects of his game
So check out the Master as he cuts these raps
And look at us with the mice in our traps
Then take a count, 1 2 3
Jam Master Kitteh, Feline M.C.

...

We're not talking Poodle, we're not talking St. Bernard,
We're not talking Dobermans who think they're all hard,
We're not talking Terrier, we're not talking Borzois,
We want all the cat people out there purrin' and makin' some noise,
We're not talking Weimeraner, we're not talking Shar Pei,
But we're talking 'bout Jam Master Kitteh.

No that's not the original. People keep recutting it to different music so there are lots of versions.
The earliest I see online is this one on MLB.com from 9/15/2010.
You'll notice he's wearing Tampa Bay Rays merchandise and apparently the Rays use the clip on the jumbotron to get the fans excited.

As a contrarian, this upsets me. Also, I'm allergic to cats and fear for my vinyl collection.

The thing that really delights me about this video is that, not to state the obvious, but the cat is enjoying it.

Wanna know how I can tell?

Because the cat is putting up with it. With wearing a tiny jersey, and being held up, and wobbled back and forth, paws put in the air like he just don't care, etc.

Anyone who thinks this cat is not in this video because he enjoys it has obviously never tried to put a shirt on an unwilling cat. Much less tried to give a cat a pill the traditional way.*

It makes me happy to see people and their pets do silly things together.

* Greenies Pill Pockets FTW!
