(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. Whether it's a trick from a newborn kitten, a candid clip of cuddling cats or a quick flick of feisty felines, there are seemingly millions of infatuating cat videos online. 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 takes place on Thursday, August 30 at the center's Open Field in Minneapolis, MN, and aims to provide an offline experience for the massive audience of online cat videos. 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).

Leading up to the announcement on August 30, Animal Planet will feature the seven video finalists for the Golden Kitty on www.animalplanet.com.
