This morning I was in a real funk. The weather was terrible. The subway train delays (because of the weather) had made me late for work, my clothes were sopping wet, and I was overdue on several projects that needed to be finished ASAP.
Getting my morning coffee was a pipe dream. By the time I sat down to check my email, I was ready to cry.
But then I saw an email from a friend with the subject line, "CUTE ATTACK!!!"
Curious, I clicked on it. Within the email, my friend had written, "I was having a terrible morning, until I saw this." Below that she had pasted a link to this video:
Much like it did to my friend, watching this sleepy little kitten instantly filled me with happy, positive feelings. And my sunnier outlook has made this rainy day much better!
Most of us cat lovers already know that the funny, quirky and cute things our cats do are guaranteed mood-boosters, so it's not the first time this has happened to me. On a daily basis, we Love Dem Cats co-editors send each other cat videos we've found through email, on Twitter, Facebook or just by surfing the Web. There's never a shortage of videos, and there's never a shortage of people who could use a boost!
We want to start sharing these uplifting clips with you, too. Every week we will post "cute attacks"—the best cat videos we find here at Love Dem Cats, so be sure to check back! And if you stumble across one you'd like to share, let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
