The Daily Kitten

Kitten videos have always been popular on the Web. But it wasn't until October 2008, the time of the Shiba Inu puppy cam, that the full potential of animal videos as workplace distraction was realized. The Daily Kitten has emerged as puppy cam 2.0 — a daily, dependable onslaught of cuteness. Every day at precisely 10:07 a.m. E.T., a new photo is posted. But even more touching are the stories that accompany the photos and the board discussions that run alongside the daily updates — chat rooms that touch upon everything from animal health to adoptions. The Daily Kitten has grown in scope to be a respite for the animal lover and an indulgence for all of us who are addicted to cute.
