First, lets not mince words. It's been a hard year for us cat lovers. First, we lost our beloved Grumpy Cat. Then, we lost our beloved Lil Bub. It's a lot to take in and a lot of mourning, isn't it? The spirits of some of the Internet's greatest cats live on through social media, though. We don't ever have to stop celebrating them, and we know that they'd want all the cats of the world to be celebrated because they're just as worthy!
Despite the low-lows of the year's losses, it's also been an absolutely incredible year for cats. We're counting down the best cat posts of the year, because it's the end of the year and that's what simply must be done. See if your favorites are here!
This rescue kitten's smile darn near broke the internet.
Cinderblock's weight-loss journey has us all dying, melting from the cuteness and sass.

This sweet, voluptuous feline landed in our care at Northshore Veterinary Hospital weighing a whopping 21.8 pounds. She is now counting on us to help her shed 45% of her body weight with a goal of 12 lbs. This page is to bring awareness to pet obesity while entertaining Cinder Block fans with cute progress pictures and video clips. Please keep in mind that weight loss in pets should be done very gradually, so be patient while our girthy girl works towards her skinny jeans. Go Cinder! ❤️ #cinderblockcat #northshoreveterinary #felineweightloss #underwatertreadmill #petphysicaltherapy #getfit #cardioqueen #chonky #petobesity @northshore_vet #purina

My 8 week old kitten started doing this thing to where she will know i’m about to come in the room and she will hide by the bathroom door and jump out to scare me when i’m walking up. 🤣 just thought I’d share this cuteness 🥰 pic.twitter.com/SOz1ckGGpr— so rock it. (@_TakivaBreanna) June 30, 2019
My boyfriend and I have been feeding this stray cat for the past year. We named her Mary. He films her waiting at his door for food every morning, but lately she hasn’t been showing up. Look what happened when she came back!!!!! pic.twitter.com/OyJSjx3ErZ— 🐉 (@theycallmevitch) June 23, 2019

This was an absolutely hysterical moment, honestly. In case you missed it.
Kevin Harlan's Westwood One radio call of the cat on the field is, as you might expect, an all-time great call. How much of a pro is Harlan? He worked a sponsor read into it. pic.twitter.com/3x0MVNEHNY— Timothy Burke (@bubbaprog) November 5, 2019
