Grumpy Cat Wins Top Honors at Internet Cat Video Festival

The second Internet Cat Video Festival was held this week at the Minnesota State Fair, and a good time was had by all. The highlight of the event was the meeting between Lil Bub and Grumpy Cat. The top honor of the festival, the Golden Kitty Award, was bestowed on Tard, also known as Grumpy Cat. Last year's winner was Henri, le Chat Noir.  

Elsewhere at the festival, seven “celebricats” were inducted into a “Hall of Fame”: Keyboard Cat, Nyan Cat, Henri Le Chat Noir, Kittens Inspired by Kittens, Maru, Boots and Cats, and Lil Bub, a toothless litter runt whose documentary aired at the Tribeca Film Festival.

Perhaps not surprisingly, the more than 10,000 fans who turned out seemed more excited to be there than the cats. Some held up cat masquerade masks on sticks, while others painted their faces to look like jungle cats – and even Grumpy Cat. One woman wore a leopard print tunic and cat ear headband, while another sported white leggings with rainbow-colored cat faces. According to the Star Tribune‘s live blog, there were cardboard cutouts of cats everywhere, Grumpy Cat crop art, and people dressed in cat onesies.

It looks like Lil Bub is explaining the mysteries of life: his hands are clasped together, eyes wide, and his mouth is open in the middle of ponderings.

Oh, so glad KeyBoard Cat got some props!! Love the cat and hope he's happy in Kitty Heaven jamming with famous artists who have also passed on...
