We were alarmed to read recently that watching cat videos online helps drive climate change. No, it’s not about the content and all that energy your cat expends sleeping 22 hours a day: it’s due to energy use by data centers — and the fact that cats are allegedly the second most popular topic on the Internet after porn.
Perhaps watching those videos in a social situation might cut that energy use at least a tiny bit. So come on down to the Cedar Lee Theatre where the popular CatVideoFest will once again be in residence of three showings. The hour-and-a-half presentation gathers together video clips of all types from submissions and popular cat websites — both live cats and animations. Come share the joy with other feline lovers!
This is a national tour that at each stop donates part of the proceeds to a local cat rescue, shelter or other pet-welfare organization. In Cleveland, that’s the Euclid Beach Cat Project, which manages feral colonies, fosters social cats and finds homes for them. Tickets are $12.50.
