I think it’s high time we all stop pretending that cats haven’t just taken over the internet, but are also dangerously close to taking over the entire world. Â Or at least pop culture. Â If you need further convincing, then please do me a favor and prepare for the upcoming release ofÂ Catching FireÂ by watching this video of cats performing a speed-through version ofÂ The Hunger Games. Â Your life will never be the same again. Â As someone who could easily spend hours watching cats and dogs do just about anything in GIF or video form, I highly enjoyed the minute and a half I spent watching this:
If you blinked, you probably missed the Effie Trinket kitty in all her cardboard glory… so please re-watch and take it all in. Â I’m sorry, but Jennifer Lawrence might have some serious competition with CATniss – if for no other reason than kitties can make their heads turn in degrees that humans are completely incapable of. Â Oh, and Josh Hutcherson? Â The Peeta cat might be a little tougher than you. Â Just saying. Â Also- as a cat owner myself, I’m just wondering if they loaded these furballs up on small doses of Benadryl? Â Because I have the most laid-back cat on the planet, but even he wouldn’t be able to perform Â that stoically if I shoved his head into a piece of cardboard.
No word yet on whether these cats peed in their costumes or if they’ll be re-makingÂ Catching Fire once its in theaters.
