Best Cat Videos of 2012 (So Far)
Looking for the best cat videos of 2012? Well, you’ve come to the right place. While it would be incorrect to say the internet was invented so people could watch cat videos, sometimes it feels like it was. There’s simply no creature, wild or domestic, that has captured the Web the way the kitty has. It’s possible one day the dog or the always underrated owl will replace the feline as number one in the internet’s heart. But that day will probably not be in 2012, because the year has given us some truly adorable cat videos so far.

In this short time period we’ve seen a cat with perfect boxing technique, a kitty who actually made us like dubstep, and what is possibly the heir to Keyboard Cat‘s crown of meme. And none of these cats needed some sort of celebrity advocate to up their view counts, like certain sloths we know. It’s safe to say they will be among 2012′s best cat videos.
