Ahhhh the weird and wonderful world of internet cats. If you have any doubt the internet is made of cats, check your Instagram feed. You may already follow every imaginable fabulous feline across town and around the world. From the cross-eyed St. Louis rescue cat named Wild Thing Monty, to the big-headed handsome Valdasso in Lithuania, our daily dose of Instagram cats makes the world a better place. But funny cats rule the internets!
And there’s always room for more Instacats. Especially when they are ridiculous, delightful, and utterly absurd. Make sure you have these three funny cats (and cat people) in your daily funny cat medicine.
Goodbye Dog Whisperer, Hello Cat Rapper
As the kids say, this feed is lit! You read it right: cat rapper. Or rather, a rapper who raps about cats? Moshow is a Portland-based artist who raps, along with his three beloved Sphinx cats and a Devon Rex named Ravioli, about cats. Not a rap fan? Not a problem. If you love cats, you’ll love Moshow.
See, the secret about MoShow the cat rapper is that he loves people! Sure, Moshow has wild and probably beyond reasonable devotion to cats. But Moshow is equally passionate about people, or at least cat people. He has a particular affection for his beloved cat ladies. Moshow’s joie de vivre and generous spirit are so infectious that he reportedly wins over even, uh, non-pet people.
MoShow has shared his kitty passion and talent to help kitty causes and other community organizations. In December, MoShow teamed up with the Oregon Humane Society to promote cat adoptions, inspiring 150 adoptions within days.
Moshow, or Dwayne Molock in non-cat circles and #CatGod to fans, continues to partner with the Humane Society and champion community organizations like the Multnomah Public Library, where he is helping to promote summer reading. What could be more irresistible than a library card-carrying cat guy who uses his powers for good?

A+ in Internetting
Tinder Cats was started by a PhD student of Communications as a project to learn the Instagram platform. Go to the head of the class, Dr. Tinder Cat! Inspiration for the Instagram feed came at the urging of friends with whom the Tinder Cats creator would endlessly show cat photos found on Tinder. Apparently most people featured are good sports, with only a single grumpy cat girl requesting her picture be removed. We think the future is bright for soon to be minted Dr. Tinder Cat!
