The Internet Cat Video Fest 2014!

We brought our cat cups!

No, I'm not joking.  This is an official Internet Cat Video Festival.  And it is at the Walker Art Center.  No slouch in the art world.  I do have to admitt feeling a little embarrassed last year at the 2013 fest at the State Fair grounds.  Especially when a guy on stage started shouting, "It's a cat party.  A cat party!"  Uff da.  We still have that going through our heads.  A meow worm.


We weren't decked out in cat t -shirts, head gear or tails.  But we did bring our cat cups.  We use them all the time.


Dean was the first to get a tat.  



Of course I had to get one too.


And look!  They played a video of my cat Hana!


O.K. I just photoshopped her in. But she's definitely a star.  She's named after a town on Maui.  Mew, mew.  And she pukes on cue.  Actually, she's just yawning here.  Poor Hana.  It's called cat shaming. 



And Akua made his film debut as well!  


I'm just pulling your tail. Akua is named after a cat we met on the Big Island of Hawaii.  The original Akua Nani means gentle "female " spirit.  Opps.  Sorry big guy.

i was presented with the opportunity to go but opted out. Sad that this year they made everyone sit on the ground instead of providing seats like they did last year. Wasn't going to fly in just for one day to sit on the ground!

Somehow I should've known that there would be an internet cat fest, but I didn't see it coming. Hysterical. It looks like a good time was had by all!
