(Silver Spring, Maryland) - While some use the Internet for research, shopping or bill paying, others take to the web to simply upload videos of their cats or watch someone else's.

Already a media leader in all things cat related, Animal Planet is happy to announce their role as media partner for the Walker Art Center's first ever Internet Cat Video Festival.

The festival is free and open to the public and showcases some of the more than 10,000 felines videos that were submitted in the following CAT-egories: comedy, drama, foreign, animated, musical, documentary, art house and honorable mention. Additionally, the festival concludes with the announcement of the People's Choice Award for Golden Kitty. Decided by online voters, the winning video will appear on Animal Planet during the season finale of MY CAT FROM HELL on Saturday, September 8, at 8 PM (ET/PT).
