Move over, Jenni-purr Lawrence and Leonardo DiCatrio….

AYRIAL-FB 2With Oscar nominations announced yesterday, I’m writing to suggest a literal ‘fluff piece’ for Venus Muse Blog on the day’s “other” announcement of this year’s most “pawesome” cinematic awards:

The 2016 ‘Cat’s Meow Awards’ (brought to you by Meow Mix brand)

(Take a minute to watch the video above… it is SERIOUSLY cute and funny.)

Established to commemorate the “unparalleled cinematic impact that cute and cuddly cats have had in 2015,” the 2016 Cat’s Meow Awards combines two of the world’s most powerful artistic forces:  “award shows” and “Internet cats.”

Brought to you by Meow Mix brand — the makers of popular cat food and the iconic “Meow, meow, meow, meow” jingle — the awards feature nominations from more than 25,000 cat enthusiasts in such award cat-egories as “Best Cat Napper,” “Best Kitty Hijinks,” and “Wild Cat Card.”


  ‘Best Cat Napper’ Nominees:

Winner:  Barb and Fritz in “Not a Care in the World” (Breckenridge, MI)


 ‘Best Kitty Hijinks’ Nominees:

Winner:  Melissa and Tux in “Tissue Box” (Endwell, NY)


 ‘Best Cat-hlete’ Nominees:

Winner:  Miricle and Panda in “Crazy Legs Panda” (Buckeye, AZ)


‘Best Cat Cuddle’ Nominees:

Winner:  Lindsay, Manny, and Oliver in “Brother Snuggles” (Fayetteville, NY)


 ‘Wild Cat Card’ Nominees:

Winner:  Cara, Floof, and Poker in “The Floof Massage” (Cutler Bay, FL)

All of these nominees and winners not only embody the best Internet cat moments of 2015, but also highlight the one-of-a-kind (and often hilarious) bond that only cats and humans share.  And as if cats needed more confidence, the lucky nominees and winners take home honor, prestige, and the knowledge that Meow Mix ‘real meat’ treats will always be there to celebrate their impressive achievements.

They sure give Best Picture nominee “Mad Max: ‘Furry’ Road” a run for its money, don’t they?
