It’s not quite “Caturday” yet, but this music video by Purina Friskies will start your weekend off right.
Arizona’s own Grumpy Cat appears in “Hard to be a Cat at Christmas,” along with four other internet cats: Nala Cat, Oskar the Blind Cat, Hamilton the Hipster Cat and Colonel Meow, a Guinness World Record holder for Longest Cat Hair.
With the aid of a catchy (downloadable!) track, the five cats “sing” about how rough it is to be served only dry food at Christmastime, when everyone else around you is eating yummy turkey and potatoes and opening presents that are not for you.
But even the cats know that gifts aren’t everything.
“Sometimes, the can is more important than the toy,” Grumpy Cat sings, after referencing all the cats in shelters this holiday season who don’t have enough to eat, which is why these five cats came together in the first place.
For every view on YouTube the music video gets — up to 500,000 views — Purina Friskies will donate one can of wet cat food to animal rescue organizations across the country.
With over 1 million views in less than three days, Friskies has already met that goal, making this Christmas a little less hard for shelter cats everywhere.
