My cat freaked out.

Mine too! She stared at the screen, stock-still, and started breathing really fast. What kind of horrifying magical secrets are those cats sharing?

That's not a kitty. That's a hybrid of a kitty and a box of Kleenex.

When my cat saw the video, she ran into the other room, donned a jet pack (?!) and then flew out the window, meowing something about activating "Operation Omega"..

I fear we are truly fucked.

My, those are some incredibly talkative cats. Two of my boys like to chatter as they groom each other, but it always devolves into a wrestling match.

Not just the "Best of the Web" - this is what electricity was invented for.

I like how the soundtrack to homunculus's link is Chocolate Rain.

My dogs go crazy everytime I play the first clip, but my cats have no reaction whatsoever. Or maybe they just want me to think they have no reaction.

Are you a shill for coca-cola? Look at that prominent displa- awwwwww.......

I started the first one. My cat Fry came running in from the next room. He tentatively looked at me, approached slowly, and when he got up on the desk stared intently at the left speaker. When he noticed the screen for the first time, with the video fullscreened, he suddenly fluffed his back as if there were a threat, then relaxed as he considered maybe it was like that cat he always sees in the mirror. Then he poked in really closely at the right speaker.

(Dons allergen-resistant bubble, ambles slowly through cat thread like an overgrown, nervously itching hamster; feels reminiscent of Tippi Hedren in Hitchcock's The Birds.)

My I add my (not particularly interesting) story to the accumulating evidence that the first "conversing cats" video is saying something really urgent to cats. The moment it started, my cat simon came trotting into my office from all the way across the house, head, ears and tail erect, with a "what? what? what?" look on his face. He stopped stock still, and listening to the end of the conversation. Then he stared thoughfully down at the ground for a moment, gave me a sage look, and left the room. Someone should do a controlled experiment with that clip.

Cats are immoral creatures (mildly NSFW) Now I know what the cats I live with do when my housemates and I are away.....

I guess my two cats speak a different dialect, because they weren't interested in the least, and they have no compunction about jumping on my desk and batting at my monitor whenever the mood strikes.

For those of you with better taste in music, the third link is actually a viral for a Japanese cat food company called Aixia. The original can be seen here and the great thing about it is it doesn't have that fucking horrible song in it.

We discovered the translation a few weeks ago, and ever since have been bursting out with "quick! act like a cat."

I also discovered that if I make the kthwp! noise that the translations guys make to accompany licking, out little cat freaks out, bushed out tail and everything.

I still crack up when I see those cats translated into english.

Something tells me that if more "cats" spoke to each other, this would be a much better world.

My cat will have conversations like that with me, if I make the appropriate meowling noises. Only problem is that I have no idea what I'm saying in cat. I imagine they go something like this:

Cat: I hear the market went down three percent today.
Me: WAFFLES WAFFLES WAFFLES.
Cat: Don't you care about the economy?
Me: WAFFLES WAFFLES WAFFLES
Cat: Look, this is important! You're the human! Stop being such a freaking moron and listen to me about expanding your stock portfolio!
Me: I like meatloaf!

Me too, moon! Go figure! Just a buncha cats hangin' out eatin' meatloaf. Cool!

I saw these talking cats on BBC news the other week. No , seriously. It made me wonder when BBC stopped being about the news.
