    Middle-Class Animals of the Year

    Just in case you thought these awards would never end, we can confirm this is the last one (and our fave). 

    “Enjoy ridiculous cuteness LIVE” says Animal Planet, introducing its 24/7 video feed of gorgeous kittens just playing, walking around or asleep in a living room. The kittens are all being looked after by Washington Animal Rescue League and waiting to be adopted. And the middle classes have gone crazy for it. All over Twitter, bored office workers are recommending the instant dose of cuteness. It’s become a bit of a guilty pleasure and it doesn’t half cheer you up.
