Yes, the photo is blurry. Is that because we are unfamiliar with our newfangled iPhone 6+’s or due to supernatural complications? I’ll leave that up to you.

Have a happy Halloween everyone!

“Cats Hard at Work” Giveaway Contest!

Hi Burgers,

In celebration of National Cat Day and in collaboration with today’s Cheezburger and Uber kitten deliveries, we’re happy to introduce the first ever “Cats Hard at Work” giveaway contest.

Want to play? Here are the details.

To play the game, simply submit a photo, video or gif of your cat “hard at work” to one of three places:

Obviously your cat doesn’t work, he probably hasn’t paid for noms a day in his life, but he does do something, and that’s what we want to see! We’ll be looking for the most most clever, cute or humorous interpretations of “cats at work”. Feel free to get creative!

The top 10 submissions will be awarded prizes!

We’ll select 10 winners and for prizes, we’ve teamed up with the hopelessly addicting app-driven robot toy company Sphero! These little bots connect to your smartphone or tablet and are super fun! Your cat will be excited too.

The first place winner will win a limited edition Sphero “Darkside Ollie”! Check it out.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zi-5hbaGmuQ

All nine runners up will receive an equally entertaining Sphero 2.0

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=43tctP24Xmo

We’ll announce the winners on October 30, 2014.

That’s it everyone, now get out there and share your cat with Cheezburger for a chance to win. If you have any questions about the game, leave them in the comments.

Be sure to also follow all of the Cheezburger and Uber kitten delivery action on Lolcats today too!

Cheers,
Cheezburger

A Little Gif-Together Tribute

Hi Burgers,

If you’re a baseball fan, you know the league lost one of its most promising players in years last weekend in a car accident. Here’s to you Oscar Taveras from this tiny corner of the Internet.

Let’s not be gloomy though! What’s new with you guys?

Work all day at my desk, time for some excercise. Looking at cat pictures on the internet counts as excercise, right?

Los Gigantes! Seattle Sounders!

Hi Sportsburgers,

Even if you’re rooting for the Kansas City Royals, you’ve got to admit that Madison Bumgarner’s 4-hit shutout last night was a piece of post-season greatness. Hot damn.

What was less great, but still historic in an infamous sort of way, was Aaron Lewis’ split second decision to rewrite the lyrics of the Star Spangled Banner. Apparently we’re all proudly hailing the gallantly streaming early light of dawn?

Lincecum doesn’t like it. You have to feel for the Staind singer, who has likely cemented a barrage tweets containing links to lyrics websites and jokes about ol’ Francis Scott being really Keyed up about the miff. Please also note that Lewis has the words “Don’t Tread On Me” tattooed onto his neck. Yikes.

Dear Sports, thank you for never failing to deliver something amazing every week.

In other news, the best news, the Seattle Sounders played some high level and very physical soccer this weekend to beat the LA Galaxy and take the Supporter’s Shield trophy for the best regular season record.

There were some near brawls

Plenty of Marco Pappa cheers for this goal!

And of course some flaming shield lifting!

Bravo Sounders! On to the post season.

Cheers,
Cheezburger

Featured Fur Monsters

Update: It’s officially a go! Glad to hear you’re all on board, though I never had a doubt. I’ll get in touch with some of the people who commented here and get something going. If you want to feature your pet, leave a comment here for now. I’ll get a better process together soon.

Hi Burgers,

I don’t have a Featured User for us this week, but I wanted to test out a new idea to get some of our four legged community members into the spotlight. For the last few weeks, the good people running the Animal Rescues group profile have been collecting stories of pet adoption and rescue from around the community (check them out here). I even contributed the story of my pup Henry to the cause.

The Story of Henry

Bear with me, because I’m not only trying to shamelessly promote my own dog (though I certainly am a little). I think Animal Rescues has an awesome idea that we should expand upon. If you guys are interested, let me know in the comments if you want to participate and I’ll work with you to create a list like the one I made for Henry that we can then share with the community and on the site!

Your animal stories don’t have to be adoption tales either, just something fun to share with everyone. Maybe your cat does something really weird and you have pictures, or your dog can do a few amazing tricks and it’s on video. If you’re like me, you essentially have nothing but photos of your meals and pets on your phone, so I’m sure there’s a story that can be told.

Internet fame for your fur monster, feels for the community and an all around good time to be had by all! It’s a win win win.

What do you all think?

Cheers,
Cheezburger

Those Who Gif-Together, Win the Internet

Hi Burgers,

It’s that time of year and people are starting to get sick around Cheez HQ. I’m officially nervous.

Stay strong little glow barfing fish that I want.

What’s new with you guys?

How could I forget that it’s World Series Day? Good call Mike. I’m thinking these two will be packing some major heat during the series.

For the Giants, Buster Posey, of course.

And on the other side, Lorenzo Cain snagging anything in his zip code.

Who or what else will be a factor?

Plenty of vitamin C should help you ward off any colds and sniffles.

Chris10a

Short story this day! We (finally) burst into autumn (or, fall, as others say)! And it fell! :P
After a recordbreaking (hottest 18/19th october in 90 yrs!) summery weekend with temperatures above 20 degrees celsius, it’s a bit harsh for a bee to bee out now! (just 10 degrees!)

And some more:

And just now:

Achoo!!! *snirff*
Toolbee

Whoops, I wasn’t prepared for this GIF-together.
Luckily I still have a GIF for that.

DeathByCupcakes

I am leaving this here with absolutely zero context. °-°

Some are faced with tough decisions. Like this little guy, for example….

That moment you remember Tuesday Gif Together on Wednesday…

Don’t be too hard on yourself.

Sportsball Records Broken and Records Banned

Hi Burgers,

Another week, another bit of history broken. Payton Manning broke the all time touchdown pass record this weekend with number 509. All of those TDs went to 45 different players, including a couple of defensive tackles. Dang. The most important thing to come out of this though is obviously the ensuing game of keep away with the record setting ball.

Poor 2013 NFL MVP/possibly greatest quarterback of all time/probably free Papa John’s pizza recipient for life. I will note that all of this came at the expense of the San Francisco 49ers, who were powerless in the face of history.

The World Series starts tomorrow (go Giants) and if you’re a Royals fan living in the Bay Area, be advised that New Zealand pop star Lorde’s song “Royals” has been banned in San Francisco for the duration of the Fall Classic.
BjVlxY4CcAEt0-e
I feel Like Lorde would be more of a Giant’s fan, but that’s just personal opinion. I wonder what the punishment would be for playing the song, maybe a constant barrage of Tony Bennet’s “I Left My Heart in San Francisco” which plays after every SF win?

Either way, good luck to both teams.

The Seattle Sounders and LA Galaxy put on quite the show this weekend in the MLS as the two teams gut it out for the best record in the regular season and the Supporters’ Shield that comes with that. A well played 2-2 draw leads into what should quite the finale this coming Saturday.

Also, Boyz II Men, apparently Landon Donovan’s personal faves, stopped by to sing the national anthem and wish Donovan goodbye with a 90’s middle school heartache classic.

So many awkward slow dances..

Cheers,
Cheezburger
