16 National Cat Day GIFs For 2016 To Brighten Up Your Day Immediately

Oct. 29 is a day devoted to the adoption and celebration of cats, and these 16 National Cat Day GIFs will get you in the proper spirit in no time if you're just not feeling it yet. From kitties with tennis balls on their heads to cats licking bunnies' faces, these memes are simultaneously super cute and super funny. It's a winning combo.

For those of us who own cats, we know just how ridiculous they can be. I don't know how many times my bengal has jumped into the empty shopping bag in the kitchen and waited to be carried around the apartment while occasionally popping her head out. (Yeah, she's freaking adorable.) As for my other kitty, any time I throw a blanket over my legs you can bet that he'll be underneath it within 10 seconds trying to burrow into the warmest spot he can find. Cats... how can anyone live a joyful life without them? I just don't know.

That being said, if you're not a cat owner, hopefully these silly GIFs will give you the same sort of happiness that owning a cat does. Seriously, if these GIFs don't put a smile on your face, I'm not sure what else could. Now enjoy!
