Ever find a channel on YouTube and become completely consumed watching it? Your coffee gets cold, you forget to eat breakfast, and you’re two hours late for your run, but, you don’t even care. In this moment, that crap just doesn’t matter anymore. You’re hooked. All in. Obsessed. You’re queuing up your emails and spam posting to social media. You’d be doing a disservice if you don’t tell everyone you know that they must. watch. this. now. This shit is important.
This happened to me this morning when I found ‘Simon’s Cat’ on YouTube. I’m probably embarrassing myself by saying this, considering it’s been around for years, with millions of views, books, and TV commercials. But, I just found it and I’m in love. (The video is short, I promise! If you like cats or have them, you’ll enjoy it)
Also, today is Sunday. Woo. Thanks to everyone who entered the giveaway drawing. It was far more than I expected, and y’all are awesome. There can only be one winner, though. And the person’s name who was randomly drawn this time:
catcraftsmo who has an awesome blog here: Why Cats Rule The World Hurray! (I will be emailing you later today)

I love Simon Cat. Check out Mean Kitty, too. Funny stuff.
I’ll definitely check it out 🙂 Thanks
You’re welcome. 🙂
Lovely video 🙂 Thanks for sharing
Simon has done a lot of cat videos. They are better (and cheaper) than therapy on a bad day. They are better than eggnog on a good day! (I swear he peeps in my window for ideas…just saying) Glad you had a great response to your contest.
I still have many more to watch. I’m obsessed with them lol. So cute
They are wonderful and exactly cat-like.
My family was turned on to “Simon’s Cat” a few years ago by a good friend. It is the BEST THING EVER!! The creator is obviously a long-time cat owner, because the situations and the actions of the cat are dead on! We love it!
It really is the best. I’ve been living under a rock haha. No one ever told me about it. I’ve been watching them on and off all day
Got so busy laughing at the video I forgot to say THANK YOU!! for the giveaway! Can’t wait to get it in the mail!
Simon’s cat is so funny. I you really want to waste time try out these.

and my favorite henri – https://www.youtube.com/user/HenriLeChatNoir
I love wasting time. I’ve seen maru. Gotta check out Henri! I’m on it. Thanks 🙂
You will love Henri – so exquisitely French.
Congrats on finding Simon’s Cat — sooo funny. And I agree with chattykerry about Maru! Especially Maru and boxes.
Maru is awesome! I feel a little better since I’ve known about those videos. It seems everyone knew about Simons Cat but me lol. Time to crawl out of that rock I’ve been living under.
Haven’t seen a lot of Simon’s Cat but love what I’ve seen! Cute but violent, so cat-like 😃
Cute and violent lol. Great description of a cat
hahaha I used to have a cat called Bobbit who was a ‘nip addict 😀
Haha. Love those lil druggies
Little furry felons 😀
The best Simon’s Cat is The Box. Also, The Engineer’s Guide to Cats is hysterical.
I just watched ‘The Box’ it was hilarious. I have to check out the engineer’s guide. Thanks for the links 🙂
Hahahaa! My kids love these videos. And husband. They’re hilarious!!
They are amazing. I forced my husband to watch a bunch of them earlier and couldn’t stop laughing. Can’t believe everyone knows about them and I’m so late to the game lol
Oh good lord that was adorable!!
I love those videos! My entire family had a big “Simon’s Cat” marathon about a month ago when we realized there were several new ones we hadn’t seen! My favourite is still the very first one…although I like the one with the Christmas tree too. 😀
Ooo I’m not sure which one the very first is. I’ll have to go look again 🙂 the Christmas one is hilarious, and way too true. Lol
The very first one is “Cat Man Do” — I saw it for the first time several years ago when a friend shared it on Facebook (or by email, I can’t remember) and I’ve been hooked ever since! Haha and I find that my aunt’s little black kitty Bella looks an awful lot like ‘Simon’s Cat’. I think it’s the position of her ears, lol.
Haha aw. I bet she is really cute. I want a cat that looks like the one from Simons Cat. I haven’t seen that video. I’m going to run to watch it, now 🙂
Ah well, one has to be obsessed with something. Me, at the moment, it’s commenting on other people’s blogs …
Congrats to the winner! But I feel like a winner with a new youtube cat video to watch!! Thanks. And again, thanks for doing such a nice and generous thing! ❤
Thank you so much 🙂
I LOVE SIMON’S CAT!!!!!! Hurray for finding it ^.^ I watch a lot of science youtube things. I’ll lose hours watching videos from them, scishow, vsauce, asapscience, smarterEveryDay, just to name a few.
Man, I never watch anything educational on YouTube. I usually go for mind-numbing random things like Simons Cat haha. Would probably be better off doing something productive like you!
Some of them are really funny, which helps. I’ve passed by more than a few dull, boring ones, where putting a screwdriver through your hand sounds more entertaining. VSauce is super entertaining, and asks a lot of questions that aren’t normally asked, like “What’s the speed of dark” and Scishow covers all sorts of things. He talks fast, and keeps it engaging. Then SmarterEveryDay explains a lot of things, but he’s so excited about all of it, and he uses high speed cameras, which is really cool. ASAPScience is an adorable couple that are very much into what they explain and do, and it keeps it engaging. So, there’s a few maybe to check out that you might like!
Cool ! I’m going to go on a YouTube spree and check them out 🙂 maybe learn a little something for a change lol
Simon is adorable.
I only discovered Simon’s Cat a few weeks ago – I adore those videos too! He definitely has cat behavior down. I have not seen the video you posted here so I’m going to check that out now 🙂
I’m glad I’m not the only newish viewer! Lol I was starting to feel left behind. 🙂
Haha, yeah, I just heard about these great new things- I think they are called leg warmers 🙂
Hmmm I’ll have to do some research on that one lol
I got turned on to Simon’s Cat a few years ago by my boss as a method of breaking up technical training tedium for our students. Worked great!
It’s pretty entertaining ! 🙂
Simon’s Cat is fabulous. And completely lifelike.
Agreed 🙂 I don’t think it could get any more lifelike. It’s awesome
These are wonderful. Okay, I blame you if I don’t get anything else done today. Haha
Haha they are amazing! So friggin cute
I have cats. Nuff said.
I hadn’t seen Simon’s Cat either!
OMG our daughter just told us about this and we LOVE him. We do the little meow sound to each other and point at our mouths lol!
Haha I’m going to start doing that too. Funny! I love Simons Cat 🙂
