Happy New Year (well, for tomorrow)! Here’s a collection of thirty (!) of the most viral cat videos (and photos) of the past year. Some we’ve seen before; most we haven’t.
I’m putting up my three favorites, but don’t miss the others.

3. Cattycake. This is one of the most-viewed cat videos on YouTube:
My three favorite photos. Halloween cat:

And if this doesn’t sate your ailurophilia, over at the Cheezburger site you can see a precis of their best posts of 2010: The Year in LOLcats. And there’s always The Best Maru Moments of 2010 (videos and photos of our favorite Scottish fold).
