Today, as many as 13,000 people are expected to attend the 2nd Annual Internet Cat Video Festival in St. Paul, Minnesota.  Last year festival organizers expected 5000, and then 10,000 cat lovers showed.

Various cat videos,(and there are a lot of them, just check You Tube), will be shown during the festival.  Organizers received over 10,000 submissions and have narrowed down the entries to 80, which will be shown a very big screen overlooking a field.

Last year a video titled "Henri 2, Paw de Deux" took home the prestigious Golden Kitty Award for best video.  The video is narrated in French with English subtitles.  It portrays the meaningless tedium of a housecat's life with humor.
