Cat lovers rejoice - it's National Cat Day!


(WBIR) – National Cat Day was founded in 2005 to raise public awareness for the number of cats that need to be rescued each year and to encourage cat lovers to celebrate the cats in their lives for their unconditional love and companionship.

The shelter has two locations in west Knoxville: 3201 Division StreetKnoxville, TN 37919; 6400 Kingston PikeKnoxville, TN 37919. Both locations is open from noon - 6 pm.

KSDK, our sister station in St. Louis, complied some of the best cat videos on YouTube. Enjoy!

"Surprised Kitty"

It is a simple concept: somebody tickles their tiny little kitten.

"Fluffy kitten is confused"

A fluffy cat with big, adorable eyes duels with a shiny toy in a battle for the ages.

"My cat Tiggy talking/speaking saying hello"

Is this cat really saying hello? You be the judge.

"My cat speaks when he is awoken"

It's a human voiceover (I think anyway), but it's still pretty funny – and the cat's body language is really what sells this cat video.

"Funny cats in water, EPIC"

Almost 80 million page views don't lie. If Orson Welles decided to follow "Citizen Kane" with a cat video, this would be it.

"The Original Grumpy Cat"

No list revolving around cats would be complete without the legendary Grumpy Cat. In this video, watch her bite the hand that feeds her.

"Funny Cats"

Any oldie but a goodie. This video explores cats doing funny things.
