Want to play? Here are the details.

To play the game, simply submit a photo, video or gif of your cat “hard at work” to one of three places:

Obviously your cat doesn’t work, he probably hasn’t paid for noms a day in his life, but he does do something, and that’s what we want to see! We’ll be looking for the most most clever, cute or humorous interpretations of “cats at work”. Feel free to get creative!

The top 10 submissions will be awarded prizes!

We’ll select 10 winners and for prizes, we’ve teamed up with the hopelessly addicting app-driven robot toy company Sphero! These little bots connect to your smartphone or tablet and are super fun! Your cat will be excited too.

The first place winner will win a limited edition Sphero “Darkside Ollie”! Check it out.

All nine runners up will receive an equally entertaining Sphero 2.0

We’ll announce the winners on October 30, 2014.

A Little Gif-Together Tribute

Hi Burgers,

If you’re a baseball fan, you know the league lost one of its most promising players in years last weekend in a car accident. Here’s to you Oscar Taveras from this tiny corner of the Internet.

Let’s not be gloomy though! What’s new with you guys?

Playing Peek-a-Boo


Cat in Underwear (I don’t know who’s)


Please stand by while CAT is trying to load WINDOWS


’m packin’ up the summer footwear today…could take quite awhile with cat help.


Work all day at my desk, time for some excercise. Looking at cat pictures on the internet counts as excercise, right?


A glimpse back in time.


Me… at Gif-Together… on time?


Nailed it!

Saw Rainbow Rocks. My reaction was:

Oh, well, now to get back to my schoolwork.

…aw, forget it, I’ll do it later…


You don’t even WANNA know what I’ve been up to.


No Ebola Vaccine For Me! I’m Already Crazy!



MessiahMews (is in the grips of a full on gif-mania).

Los Gigantes! Seattle Sounders!

Hi Sportsburgers,

Even if you’re rooting for the Kansas City Royals, you’ve got to admit that Madison Bumgarner’s 4-hit shutout last night was a piece of post-season greatness. Hot damn.

What was less great, but still historic in an infamous sort of way, was Aaron Lewis’ split second decision to rewrite the lyrics of the Star Spangled Banner. Apparently we’re all proudly hailing the gallantly streaming early light of dawn?

Lincecum doesn’t like it. You have to feel for the Staind singer, who has likely cemented a barrage tweets containing links to lyrics websites and jokes about ol’ Francis Scott being really Keyed up about the miff. Please also note that Lewis has the words “Don’t Tread On Me” tattooed onto his neck. Yikes.

Dear Sports, thank you for never failing to deliver something amazing every week.

In other news, the best news, the Seattle Sounders played some high level and very physical soccer this weekend to beat the LA Galaxy and take the Supporter’s Shield trophy for the best regular season record.

There were some near brawls

Plenty of Marco Pappa cheers for this goal!

And of course some flaming shield lifting!

Bravo Sounders! On to the post season.

Featured Fur Monsters

Update: It’s officially a go! Glad to hear you’re all on board, though I never had a doubt. I’ll get in touch with some of the people who commented here and get something going. If you want to feature your pet, leave a comment here for now. I’ll get a better process together soon.

Hi Burgers,

I don’t have a Featured User for us this week, but I wanted to test out a new idea to get some of our four legged community members into the spotlight. For the last few weeks, the good people running the Animal Rescues group profile have been collecting stories of pet adoption and rescue from around the community (check them out here). I even contributed the story of my pup Henry to the cause.

The Story of Henry

Bear with me, because I’m not only trying to shamelessly promote my own dog (though I certainly am a little). I think Animal Rescues has an awesome idea that we should expand upon. If you guys are interested, let me know in the comments if you want to participate and I’ll work with you to create a list like the one I made for Henry that we can then share with the community and on the site!

Your animal stories don’t have to be adoption tales either, just something fun to share with everyone. Maybe your cat does something really weird and you have pictures, or your dog can do a few amazing tricks and it’s on video. If you’re like me, you essentially have nothing but photos of your meals and pets on your phone, so I’m sure there’s a story that can be told.

Internet fame for your fur monster, feels for the community and an all around good time to be had by all! It’s a win win win.

What do you all think?

Those Who Gif-Together, Win the Internet

Hi Burgers,

It’s that time of year and people are starting to get sick around Cheez HQ. I’m officially nervous.

Stay strong little glow barfing fish that I want.

What’s new with you guys?

Miracle Healing


Some silliness


Huh, Someone Talking to Me?


Enjoyin’ a little ice fishing in the Great White North…hopin’ to reel in a big’un!!

btw fake video is fake

How could I forget that it’s World Series Day? Good call Mike. I’m thinking these two will be packing some major heat during the series.

For the Giants, Buster Posey, of course.

And on the other side, Lorenzo Cain snagging anything in his zip code.

Who or what else will be a factor?

Plenty of vitamin C should help you ward off any colds and sniffles.


Short story this day! We (finally) burst into autumn (or, fall, as others say)! And it fell! :P
After a recordbreaking (hottest 18/19th october in 90 yrs!) summery weekend with temperatures above 20 degrees celsius, it’s a bit harsh for a bee to bee out now! (just 10 degrees!)

And some more:

And just now:

Achoo!!! *snirff*

Whoops, I wasn’t prepared for this GIF-together.
Luckily I still have a GIF for that.


I am leaving this here with absolutely zero context. °-°


Some are faced with tough decisions. Like this little guy, for example….


That moment you remember Tuesday Gif Together on Wednesday…


Don’t be too hard on yourself.

Sportsball Records Broken and Records Banned

Hi Burgers,

Another week, another bit of history broken. Payton Manning broke the all time touchdown pass record this weekend with number 509. All of those TDs went to 45 different players, including a couple of defensive tackles. Dang. The most important thing to come out of this though is obviously the ensuing game of keep away with the record setting ball.

Poor 2013 NFL MVP/possibly greatest quarterback of all time/probably free Papa John’s pizza recipient for life. I will note that all of this came at the expense of the San Francisco 49ers, who were powerless in the face of history.

The World Series starts tomorrow (go Giants) and if you’re a Royals fan living in the Bay Area, be advised that New Zealand pop star Lorde’s song “Royals” has been banned in San Francisco for the duration of the Fall Classic.
I feel Like Lorde would be more of a Giant’s fan, but that’s just personal opinion. I wonder what the punishment would be for playing the song, maybe a constant barrage of Tony Bennet’s “I Left My Heart in San Francisco” which plays after every SF win?

Either way, good luck to both teams.

The Seattle Sounders and LA Galaxy put on quite the show this weekend in the MLS as the two teams gut it out for the best record in the regular season and the Supporters’ Shield that comes with that. A well played 2-2 draw leads into what should quite the finale this coming Saturday.

Also, Boyz II Men, apparently Landon Donovan’s personal faves, stopped by to sing the national anthem and wish Donovan goodbye with a 90’s middle school heartache classic.

So many awkward slow dances..

Sissy is a Credit to the Maiden of Finland


Hi Burgers,

This week’s Featured User hails from the Land of the Midnight Sun! I don’t know if it’s a Finnish flair for healthy living, but Sissy takes the laudable distinction of choosing salad as her favorite food, though putting bits of burger on it might be considered cheating. Either way, bravo Sissy.

We’d love to hear the story behind your username!
It’s simply my own name translated. I’ve used Sissy or Cissy online for years.

How long have you been a member of the Cheezburger community and what made you want to join?
I was probably hopping around from link to link, when I hit the Cheezburger site sometimes in 2007. I prowled through the funny captions on FP (it was possible to go through ALL of them at the time) and got hooked. I made my first lol November 3, 2007 (I’ve kept the email!), but registered as late as July 10, 2008.

What do you look for in a Cheez friend, and what’s the best way to make a new friend?
Quirky, witty things definitely attract my attention: lols that make me smile, chuckle, lol, think, enjoy. Sometimes I send a friend request, sometimes I receive one. Some friends stay, some drop off, some I never hear of again, but that’s how it goes.

What is your favorite site on Cheezburger and why?
I have enjoyed many sites, but Lolcats and I Has A Hotdog are my top faves.



What is it about Cheezburger that makes you happy?
It’s an open, friendly place with lots of fun. And all the themes and events, like snowblol fites or books (!) often fire up my imagination.

Tell us something super interesting about yourself—an embarrassing story, a quirky habit, something that will make us laugh!
As I wear glasses, I’ve noticed I need them on when I speak on the phone. Then again, I don’t see a thing without my glasses.

If you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be? Cheezburgers?
Cheezburgers are fine and tasty, but I think salads would be the thing. You can put just about everything in a salad so it wouldn’t get boring. Stretching a bit, even bits of a burger…

If you could create a new feature for Cheezburger members to use on our sites what would it be, and why do we need it?
I’ve got a lot of friends. Sometimes I need to search a friend. It’s a bit trying to try and guess which page they are on. It would be great if the Friends section had an alphabetic links thingy (A, B, C,…) or a search box.

What else do you like to do when you’re not on the Internet?
I send a lot of cards and receive about an equal amount. The addresses I do get from the Postcrossing site, though. I read a lot. I like to go for walks, often with my camera.

Here’s one of my pics:

I’ve made bead and wire jewelry for a few years now and crocheted pull tab accessories, just for fun. It takes a lot of time to prepare the tabs, so I need to priorize a bit how I use my free time. Last summer I had my first raku ceramics class and intend to continue next year. We have a wide variety of evening classes at the local adult education center (kansalaisopisto in Finnish). I’ve joined two classes this autumn, one evening every 2nd week both, accessorizing pull tabs and learning to use Fimo clay. I could go on and on about IT related things like fractal programs and my fave terrain generator.

Here’s a pic I made with Terragen:
I think I may have too many hobbies…

Where do you often find inspiration for your LOLs?
There’s inspiration everywhere! Sometimes it’s something someone says or does or writes (books! Monty Python!), something on tv, another lol, a dream, a picture…

If you had a million dollars, what would you do with it?
I’d buy a house with a library innit. And lots of ‘pootery things.

Here’s a pic of some of my books:

Do you have any animal companions, or have you had any in the past? What is special about them?
I don’t have any pets right now. Even my brother’s lil’ poodle went over the Rainbow Bridge some years ago. I used to babysit Pepi often. When I was a teenager, we had two small dogs and a cat: Bella (mama) and Jesse James (bebe boi) and Miki (brother from another mother).

Here they are on their sofa in our kitchen:
(Bella in the front). Jesse was Bella’s baby even when he grew bigger than her. Jesse and Miki played a lot together, but if Jesse made she slightest whining noise, Bella would jump at Miki.

If we were coming to Finland, where should absolutely go?
I live in Savo (Savonia), in the east of Finland. One place to visit would be the Olavinlinna castle in Savonlinna. Helsinki, our capital is a must, and Lappland with Santa Claus.

Did you know, everything from the ‘waist’ up of Maiden Finland is north? And a place called North East Country (Koillismaa) is south of the North. Eastern Finland is even more to the south… Never thought it confusing till I met non-Finns. XD

For those that don’t know (me), check out the Maiden of Finland:
I would like to live in the Arm.

What are you reading right now?
Fanfiction about dragons online and once more ‘Witches Abroad’ by Terry Pratchett

Thanks for the great interview Sissy! We’re all coming to visit for Christmas.

Farewell Dagmer

Hi Burgers,

Update: Here is the finished Dagmer pumpkin! (If you’re just arriving, scroll down to see the rest of the story).


You might have seen this on Lolcats this morning, but if not I just wanted to share with everyone. Dagmer is actually the family member of one of Cheezburger’s editorial staff and thus one of our own. Here’s to you Dagmer, I’ve heard the napping conditions on the Bridge are as comfy as one million king sized mattresses with nary a pea to be found.

Artist Commemorates a Lost Feline Family Member with this “Day of the Dead” Pumpkin

Artist Jennifer Comer Krohn and her family recently saw their 17 year old kitty companion off to the Rainbow Bridge. In honor of the deceased, Jennifer is beautifully painting a pumpkin with Dagmer’s likeness in the style of a Day of the Dead spirit.

Rest in peace Dagmer. We hope you have fun spooking trick or treaters this Halloween!
