Live Streaming Kittens Surely Is What The Internet Was Invented For

Animal Planet are good people. They know what I need. What I need right now to cure my afternoon slump is a dose of adorable kittens to restore my faith in humanity. Hit the jump to get the feline therapy you need.

Right now, you can log on to the Animal Planet website and get yourself a solid dose of the internet's main commodity: adorable kittens.

Here's the logic behind Animal Planet's kitten cam. Excuse the Americanisms:

It's fall. Summer's over. Days are getting shorter. There may not be a hockey season. "Gangnam Style" is on the brink of being played out. And winter will be setting in soon. So, we at Animal Planet decided everyone could use a huge dose of cute to brighten up the day. We've partnered with our friends at the Washington Animal Rescue League to bring you daily kitten cuteness by way of this undeniably adorable live cam.

It's all meant to promote a new show, but seeing as how we probably won't get that, you can enjoy these cats in the meantime.

Strangely, this isn't the first time someone's thought that streaming cats over the internet is a good idea. iiNet teamed up with a cat shelter in Western Australia to promote animal welfare and ruin our collective productivity.

It's definitely worth watching, despite the fact that it's a little bit dark over there now. You're welcome. [Animal Planet via Boing Boing]
