This is it. The big one. The reason why the internet is here. The pressure to pare this list down to a mere 10 cat videos for best cat video of the year was skull-crushing.

In case you hadn't noticed, the internet is full of cat videos. But which one is the best? Grumpy Cat? Henri, the only cat with the existential soul of a French poet? That weird one that loves dubstep? How can we choose just one??

After much debate, we've decided these are the best. Pick your favorite and vote in our poll, or leave your write-in candidate in the comments. And don't forget to sign up for TheFW newsletter to find out which friendly feline is crowned the champion on January 15.
