From BuzzFeed comes a roundup of the 30 most important cats of 2011. If you’re an ailurophile you’ll want to see every one, but here are five of my favorites:
Guilty Russian cat (he appears 25 seconds in). Have you ever seen a guiltier-looking cat?
Fat cat on a diet! Is there anything sadder than a cat who wants his noms but isn’t allowed to have them?
The saddest kitten of all time (as the BuzzFeed caption says, “Lighten up—you’re a kitten!”):
And of course one of my favorites (right after Maru): Kagonekoshiro, or “white basket cat,” the chillest cat in the world. See his website here.
