Offbeat: Catstravaganza ’09: Five things you should know about 09/09/09

  • Urlesque thinks it can make “fetch” happen by trying to convince sites to not post cat stuff on 09/09/09. Well, much like the cat in the video above, felines aren’t going out like that. Neither are we. Here’s five things you need to know about our counter-protest, the Catstravaganza:

    1. We’ll still post news, but the bulk of our posts on Wednesday will be cat-related. We swear, our timing will be nothing less than purrfect.
    2. Cats have nine lives, and 09/09 is nine squared. And 09/09/09? Well, it’s nine cubed. Which means that the ante has been upped. Any attempts to kill their influence on that day will be futile and if nothing else will make the cats scratch back even harder.
    3. Tell the world about the Catstravganza by sending them a Tweet. The #catstravaganza hashtag will be heavily used in the operation.
    4. Have something cat-related that the world must know about? E-mail it to us. We’ll help it claw up to the top.
    5. Best of all, guys: We have an official badge you can throw on your blog. Support the Catstravaganza with the love of linkage.
