Move over, Peyton Meowning, Fur-ena Williams, and Tiger Woods – there's a new kind of athlete in town, one that can run 30 miles per hour, jump up to seven times their own height, and chase a red laser dot like nobody's business. I'm talking, of course, about cats!
Over 25,000 cat lovers submitted their remarkably talented kitties for an award, and though choosing was near im-paw-sible, the voting committee of Meow Mix fans ultimately crowned a winner for Best Cat-hlete (as well as the other awards cat-egories, Best Cat Cuddle and Wild Cat Card).
Check out the Cat's Meow Awards clip recognizing some of the Internet's greatest four-legged athletes:
These incredible feats really make you ask yourself, "Who needs professional football or soccer when you've got a cat?" In fact, that's why Meow Mix created the Cat's Meow Awards – to help us appreciate all the little ways cats make our lives GREAT.
If you've got a cat worth showing off (and really, who doesn't?) submit your own irresistible cat moment at irresistiblemoments.com and get a FREE bag of Meow Mix Irresistibles treats, created to make kitty-human bonding time even more delicious.
