Did you know that in 2014, there were 26 BILLION views of cat videos on YouTube. It is the largest single category of uploads with 2 million devoted to our feline friends in the last year.
A hero to all kitty fans: Jessica Gall Myrick from Indiana University Media School, surveyed almost 7000 people about how watching videos of cats makes them feel.
The results: Looking at cats videos makes people happy. They boost their energy and positive emotions and decreasing any negative feelings - viewers experienced less sadness, annoyance and anxiety.
And think watching cat videos is a time suck? Think again my friend! “The emotional pay-off may actually help people take on tough tasks afterward," Myrick said.
With that in mind, as a service to you, I have spent many thousands of hours curating the best cat videos on the internet. You are welcome.
With 41 million views the internet cannot be wrong with this classic. Actually it’s my number one favourite cat video ever….
