Here's The Website You Will Never Ever Leave


Of course, it’s pictures of cats. But there’s a twist.

If you haven’t had your fill of internet cats lately and find that Cheezburger is just not sophisticated enough, surf over to I Know Where Your Cat Lives the premiere site for stalking cats who have had their photos posted in public.

Here’s how the creators describe it:

I Know Where Your Cat Lives is a data experiment that visualizes a sample of 1 million public pics of cats on a world map, locating them by the latitude and longitude coordinates embedded in their metadata. The cats were accessed via publicly available APIs provided by popular photo sharing websites. The photos were then run through various clustering algorithms using a supercomputer at Florida State University in order to represent the enormity of the data source.

OK, great! Impressive speak. But more cats, please.

I recognize that a single serving site like this should be easy to quit, but I’ve been refreshing for hours and looking at all the different cats of the world. Near, far, wherever they are, these cats just go on and on and on.

Actually, here, put this on and start clicking. ::plays penny whistle solo over and over::
