Getting antsy waiting for the new season of Downton Abbey? I kinda am. Unfortunately, we are going to have to wait until 2014 (Jan 4, to be exact), until the series returns.

Thank you, internet gods!
What, I ask you, is better than cat videos? (Yes, I know: good sex, BUST magazine, coffee.) And what if someone, some genius, were to combine all the best cat videos from one month into a convenient video you could have on repeat all day?
Thank you, mother Russia! Not only do you have a theatre with cat performers (check out MCAT here), you give us our cat fix of the month. Read More
