If you’ve got that dreadful Friday feeling in which you think the weekend will never arrive, then we have something that you immediately need to watch. Forget your lunch meeting, ignore your homework and definitely don’t call back your bae because we’ve just found a two-hour long, 360-degree cat video that will make all your procrastination dreams come true. You can thank us later.
Filmed at the San Francisco cat cafe KitTea by filmmaker Michael Morgenstern and his company Everything Is Film, you can now watch two hours worth of frantic feline action in your web browser without having to pay $27 like all the suckers doing it IRL. Based on the length and amount of pixels this video contains (1 trillion btw!), this video has officially been dubbed the “biggest cat video on the Internet”. Heaven, right?
The cafe was founded by cat enthusiasts Courtney Hatt and David Braginsky, and was opened last year to “create a Zen retreat where people and cats can hang out to the benefit of both – through the vehicle of a teahouse”. It’s inspired by the Japanese trend of cat cafes in which stressed-out metropolitans can chill and drink tea surrounded by dozens of friendly faces – and yes, there’s one in London too.
If you want a video full of meowing, fighting and sleeping but don’t want to watch another episode of The Geordie Shore, then we highly recommend this visual delight, as towards the end you get to see some people actually dress up in cat costumes. Oh and one last thing if we still haven’t convinced you that this video is pure gold just yet – every single cat in this video is available for adoption, including the beautiful three-legged cat I have my eyes on.
