10. Keyboard Cat

Keyboard cat defines the age of cats on the internet and cats in music. He mesmerizes, he amuses, and he really works those keys!

9. Sonic Youth - "Kool Thing"

Two things internet music nerds love: Kim Gordon and cats.

8. Girl Talk's Collective Soul Cat

Collective Soul cat is an easy laugh. This also happens to be the pet of mashup maestro Girl Talk. We actually asked him why he chose this song in particular. He gave us the full scoop:

It wasn't like I could pick any song. I just thought that part in that song was pretty distinctive. Actually just sampled the vocal part of that song on my last record. I like the song, but I also think it can be kind of comical -- it's such a distinctive thing. The meow doesn't sound exactly like the "yeah," but it's just a very punctual vocal thing. I just thought to me it was funny, the fact that the cat's meow fit in there perfectly.
