The Cat and the Fly: Eye Candy for Cat LoversPublished August 19, 2009
Simonscat, a hugely talented cartoonist and cat lover, creates some of the most hilarious feline-oriented videos on the internet. It is a pleasure to watch his work as Simonscat obviously appreciates the true essence of the Cat.
He manages to precisely capture those incredible antics for which our miniature predators are famous. I often wonder if he has been channeling one of his own cats, since he really seems to understand and is able to communicate feline behavior so magnificently.
The other day a friend sent me a link to Simonscat's most recent production. First uploaded to YouTube.com on July 24th, the video already has received over 1,432,266 views. I got such a kick out of the video that I was compelled to share it. I will almost guarantee that all your felinophiles out there will find it quite amusing even if you have already viewed it. This video has extensively been making the rounds.
What really tickled me the most was our cats' reaction to the demandingly plaintive vocalizations that Simonscat describes as, "a hungry cat resorts to increasingly desperate measures to catch a housefly", which were hilariously portrayed by the featured feline star, as he slowly became obsessed in his "hunt" for a tasty treat. Both cats' eyes were riveted to the screen, and Hush Puppy even raised a tentative paw to touch the screen, perhaps to lend some support to the frustrated kitty.
So sit back and relax for a couple of minutes and prepared for the delightful treat in store for you accompanied by an abundance of giggles.
