7 Cats You Probably Don't Know About (And Should)

Think you got a keen pulse on the Internet cat scene? Nah, dog. We do. Here's some of the hottest up-and-coming cats on the web.

1. Snoopy

Snoopy's real big on Instagram, and quite rightfully. Look at that face. Look at those deep, black, penetrating eyes. Snoopy can definitely see right into your soul—but who better to do it?

2. Nala

With a subtly pinched, bunny-esque face and some dynamite ears, Nala demands attention. Nala was picked up from the streets and is a Siamese-Tabby mix. Good work, guys.

3. Gigi

Aside from apparently bearing a striking resemblance to an elderly Asian gentleman, Gigi's face clearly leaves an impression. After all, her permanent, stoic expression leaves many pondering just what is she thinking?

4. Colonel Meow

Aside from having absolutely perfect Facebook cover art and a totally fitting name, Colonel Meow is probably the fluffiest, angriest-looking feline this side of China.

5. Spangles

Where does one even begin with Spangles? Spangles is a three-year-old, smartly striped, cross-blue-eyed beaut of a cat. And he also likes to dress up. One of the strongest contenders for best new Internet cat of the year.

6. Luna

Luna "the Fashion Kitty" is somewhat upsetting in concept, but in execution she's quite good. Mostly, it's about the tongue. Look at that thing. Even more impressive is the fact that she can have such a floppy thing and still model the newest cat styles.

7. Waffles

Waffles is a Scottish fold who was originally passed over at the shelter because he was "ugly," but he apparently grew into his fur in the best way possible. His ears are freaking perfect.

These cats still not current enough for you?

All right, fiiiiine. You can view and VOTE on some even newer emerging felines in The Friskies and help pick which will inevitably end up on the Today show.
