Facebook Spoof, Meowbook, Positions Itself As The First Social Network For Cats

Technically the first social network for cats already exists (Catster, anyone?), but that isn't stopping Thomas Mai, creator of the fictional MEOWBOOK. "Cats can add each other as cats," Mai enthuses, as he deadpans his way through the hilarious kitten-filled clip, where he also pokes fun at cat breading, and pays tribute to Harry Pointer, the grandaddy of the lol-cat movement.

Except for a brief mention, you wouldn't even know that the video is actually an undercover commercial for chocolate bar Cadbury Boost, however, as "Award Winning Journalist" Ben Fordham says, "Pretty much anything having to do with cats and the internet works."

"A white cat in a green chair. That's hip."

Nominations can be made once a day through June 29th!

Cats don't need social networks. They have nutty humans, creating thousands of pages and sites, for them!
