I woke up really early today. 5am to be exact. I don’t know why exactly after only four hours that my body decided that it was time to be awake. I could have gotten at least a couple more hours. It was entirely just one of those wide eyed wakeful moments that turned into a wakeful early morning.
I haven’t had coffee yet. I don’t know that I should be writing here before coffee. Perhaps I won’t allow myself to do any editing either, that might be interesting for all of us.
Just a side note, some of these blog posts will be serious and some of them will be less than serious. Variety is the spice of life, right?
So, I grabbed a chocolate milk and decided I wanted to write something this morning regardless of the lack of coffee in my body. I have another more serious post still in the works but I woke up with something else on my mind today…
Cats. I do love cats.
I am guilty of looking at cat pictures on Facebook and watching cat videos on Youtube. Surely we are all guilty of this occasionally but I am guilty of it on a regular basis so you might say that it is “normal” for me to be enjoying pictures of funny cats. Cats are just entertaining, lovable and endearing in their own special way.
As such I have a favorite cat Youtuber. Before you close the article.. I will mention this is not a regular cat Youtuber but it is a guy who makes animated cat videos and he’s rather well known as his Youtube account has millions of views. His videos are hilarious and totally spot on for cat humor in every day life.
If you love cats at all, you will love Simon’s Cat. These videos are black and white, hand drawn animations. They are original and unique and all very hilarious. The videos are usually only between one and four minutes long, most of them around two minutes. So they are short but very fun little films bursting with cat entertainment.
I just wanted to take a few minutes here to show you some of my favorites. If you have ever lived with a cat, you will find these to be so much fun.
The first Simon’s Cat video I ever watched is called Cat & Mouse. The title is a bit of play on words there and the mouse actually is referring to a computer mouse. This is still one of my favorites.
The first video he ever made is called Cat-Man-Do. From the very start I just find his animation to be so funny and so well made. It is about the desperate actions of Simon’s Cat who desires attention from his owner who is sleeping. The author of these videos does have his own cats and it really shows.
This video called Scary Legs is one of my very favorites of them all. As you may have figured, I do not much like spiders or other bugs and so it really hits the spot for me. While I do not like spiders, I do have a good sense of humor about my otherwise unexplainable and illogical phobias.
Lastly I will mention this video called Screen Grab. I recall seeing this one when I was not having such a good day and it literally made me laugh so hard I had to watch it a few times in a row. It cannot be described but is best seen for full effect.
Honestly, I love all of Simon’s videos and sometimes I just watch them all when I really need a smile. It was hard to pick out just a few, but I hope you enjoyed them. While I don’t regularly subscribe or watch any particular Youtube channel on a regular basis, Simon’s Cat has made my rare exceptions list in that regard. In that, I had to share it with you in hopes that it too brings you a smile the way it does me.
Here is a link to the Youtube listings of all of his videos. Enjoy!
