In honor of a very serious and important holiday in our house, International Cat Day, my two kitties Sochi and Mr.White asked (er, demanded) that I post a blogpost chronicling their most fur-tastic and famous kitty cat Instagram photos and videos.
I, of course, happily agreed to comply with their request.
However, I did point out that most of the photographs would emphasize their frequency of napping in odd positions, chasing inanimate objects and being overall silly-cute-and-weird at the same time. They did not oppose this point and authorized me to move forward with the assignment.
So without further delay, let me share (in collaboration with my cats) the Top 50 Sochi + Mr White Instagrams for International Cat Day..

Cat Disclosure: This has been a Sochi and MrWhiteCat Production. All above photos are sole copyright of Sochi and MrWhite and must never be used unless their paws approve usage and context. Sochi and MrWhite would also like to give a shoutout to all the cats out there and specifically not include dogs. I asked that dogs be included in the pet shoutout, but MrWhite firmly said, no dogs allowed. So while I adore dogs, the above shoutout is for cats only. All comments must be complimentary in form or they will be swiftly removed by Sochi's paw clicks. Sochi requests that you leave comments describing how cute he is and MrWhite requests comments telling his mommy, aka me, to buy him more treats and serve more dry food even though he knows the wet food is better for him. He also requests more play sessions and would like to point out that he does not have fingers or he would indeed be writing this entire blog for himself. Lastly, Sochi and MrWhite demand that you adopt and don't shop and that every household in America has at least one kitty cat head of household. Two is preferred. Sochi would also like to ask for you to donate to one of the above kitty cat charities ... or at the very least hug a cat today. Thank you and goodnight... at least for all the napping cats out there.
Sochi and MrWhite also requested that I add a photo of miss Nellycat..
