Let’s face it: Cats own the Internet. But it’s getting a little much, and that’s why the Urlesque blog is organizing “9.9.09—A Day Without Cats on the Internet.” The master plan calls for cats not to be mentioned, emailed, viewed, nor blogged about.

“…before a hilarious video comes crashing into our inbox. But for one day, we will abstain... for you... for the cats.” Linda Holmes, writing on NPR’s Monkey See blog, agrees. “We love a LOLcat, we love a keyboard cat,” but on Sept. 9 the blog “will not discuss cats, cat videos, adorable cats, or talented cats of any kind.” But that’s days away, so Holmes has ample time to watch (and rewatch) her favorite vid, at left.
