We Listened to Your Feedback and Updated the New Cheezburger App

We’ve added a new feature for accessing the Cheezburger Channels!

We have been receiving lots of feedback since we updated the app last week ago and have heard loud and clear that the new design makes it too hard to find the Cheezburger channels you know and love.

We just released an update to the app store that has a new feature that lets you navigate much as you did before to FailBlog, Memebase, Senor Gif and all the rest.


You will find a new channel selector on the featured tab on the home page and it lets you quickly navigate through all the Cheezburger channels to find your favorites. We have also made that selection sticky so that every time you relaunch the app it will remember your last selection and start you in the channel you last visited.

Thank you for using the app and we are working hard to make sure we deliver an experience you love. We are reviewing all the other feedback we are hearing and you will see more updates coming over the next few weeks.

We truly appreciate the passion you all have for Cheezburger and if you have suggestions, comments or feedback please email us at contactus@cheezburger.com

You guys are the best!

Gif-Together Tuesday is also #GivingTuesday

Hi Burgers,

The Cheezburger community is not only a giffing bunch of people, but I’m thinking you all are pretty giving as well. This is the same community that celebrated Black Friday by raising awareness for black cats, after all. I’ve heard countless stories about you guys helping out in communities, giving animals forever homes and just generally being awesome.

Before we get down to some giffing I want to quickly point out that today is #GivingTuesday! This day was created as a kind of foil to all the consumer madness that happens around this time of year. People around the world show support for the act of giving ‘just because’ by taking a pic, tagging it #unselfie and #givingtuesday and uploading it to their social media of choice. Check out some of the ways people are giving and feel free to add your own pic to the mix.

Before you go though, under no circumstances are you to leave without giving us a gif.

For me, I’d like to offer the Cheezburger community a round of applause.

Sorry that it’s kind of creepy.

What are you guys up to?

Sharing is kinda like giving…isn’t it?


Kitteh’s version of sharing :)


Just another Canadian looking for the door to my igloo

here in the frigid frick’n great white north

Getting pollen to share:


Giving a Mouse a 2nd Chance. Well, Why Not?

Crazed black cat!!! Watch out!!!


This hoomin isn’t sharing, but the kittehs will! (If ever succesful…)

Or just share a drink with your friends

Just don’t share what people don’t want (to know)


Sharing is caring!

All Hail Black Kittehs!

Hi Burgers,

Sorry the blog is a little late today. Is it possible to get a tryptophan hangover?

You guys made a lot of really awesome Black Friday Lols celebrating black cats over the past couple of weeks. This community continues to prove that it is just the best. With the help of some fellow Burgers, I gathered up a few of them into this handy dandy list!

Black Kittehs Took Over Black Friday This Year!

There were tons of good ones, but I couldn’t make a list that long. Share your black cat lols or stories in the comments!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

I’m grateful for each and every one of you in the community that are subjected daily to my terrible puns and jokes.

You guys are the best. See you next week!

Gif Thanks with a Gif Together

Hi Burgers,

Food comas abound! This time of year for me usually means an abundance of watching National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation with the fam while my father in-law recites each of Chevy Chase’s lines in real time!

It’s quite a skill! (Apologies for the language).

I love the guy.

What are you guys up to this Thanksgiving?

That feel when too many things to do.


Take this:
– “Thanksgiving is coming. Your Relatives too.”

– “How Europe sees Thanksgiving”

– “Is dressing as a Turkey for Thanksgiving still a thing?”

– “Happy Thanksgiving from Wednesday Addams”


We don’t celebrate thanksgiving in The Netherlands…

At least there’s no dinosaurs here…

And that’s the truth!


I left the cat vacuuming til the last minute so I’m kinda busy…


We’re gonna need a bigger Gravy Boat:

In Tribute to Pollyme2


Hi Burgers,

Pollyme2 has been a valued member of the Cheezburger community since February of 2012. Like most of us, she proudly counts herself among the ranks of the not-so-crazy cat people and is the loving human to four kittehs. Polly is a caring friend to her human counterparts too and during her time on Cheezburger she has made many Cheez friends with her warmth and charming sense of humor.

Over the weekend, a few of those close to Pollyme2 informed me that she is terminally ill and has just a few months left.

With all of the friends that she has in the community, it is clear that she has touched many people here. I’d like to use our corner of the Internet today to give tribute to one of our own. If you know Pollyme2, please leave a comment, a lol in her on honor or one of your favorite lols that she made on this post. I will gather them all up onto one list and share it with the community as an homage to Polly.

With deepest sympathy,

Lexi05 Has Seen teh Lolcat Light!


Hi Burgers,

For this week’s Featured User, let’s go back to July 2011…

Happy Cat: Lexi05, please raise your right hoomin paw and place it on dis Lolcat Bible
Lexi05 does as instructed.
Happy Cat: Does yoo swear ta maintain that teh Internetz was made fur kittehs, is currently fueled by kittehs and forebur more shall be dominated by kittehs?
Lexi05: I do.
Happy Cat: Welcome home minion, yoo can has Featured User Blog Post.
A strong chorus of purring rises from the assembled Lolcats

We’d love to hear the story behind your username!
Well, I am afraid is not that interesting. Lexi is one of my cats, a very temperamental and stubborn Calico, and I added 05 to make a fancier name.

How long have you been a member of the Cheezburger community and what made you want to join?
I`ve been a proud member of the Cheezburger community since July 2011. I’m a huge animal lover, especially a cat lover, and I am addicted to the Internet. I found ICHC thanks to my cat Frodo. He made me wanna find out if there were more people like myself. And there are!!! I was thrilled to find out that cats rule the Internet, that there are millions and millions of people who aren’t shy about showing their love for these fascinating and mysterious little critters. And this fueled my search for interesting websites that are built around cats. When I discovered Cheezburgers, I had a revelation. I confess that up to that moment, I hadn’t heard of a Lolcat. ICHC it`s so terribly interesting and so funny! I hit the right spot! I bought myself a LOLcat Bible, and the rest is history!

What do you look for in a Cheez friend and what’s the best way to make a new friend?
Being an animal lover is a must.  I don’t accept requests from  people with blank profiles. I look over their lols and their pictures, and I try to find common ground.

What is your favorite site on Cheezburger and why?
Lolcats, of course! But I also love Animal Capshunz, HotDog and There, I Fixed It.

What is it about Cheezburger that makes you happy
First of all, my friends. I came across so many awesome people.  We support one another. I love their sense of humor, their funny LOLs. And I love JeffCatsBookClub. I have so much fun here. Then, ICHC is very useful. Jack, the cat that was lost by American Airlines in JFK Terminal 8, is a very good example. We made LOLs that we shared wherever we could. Many Cheezburger community members were involved in his search. Unfortunately, Jack succumbed to the effects of two months of malnutrition.

Tell us something super interesting about yourself—an embarrassing story, a quirky habit, something that will make us laugh!
I don’t know how interesting this is, but it’s a funny story. In high school, we went on a trip. Of course, in the night, after our teacher went to sleep, we put a little party together. The guys brought some booze. Late at night, after a certain number of empty bottles, we heard a loud knock on our door. We hid the bottles and opened the door. There was this policeman in our room. He asked us what we were doing, in this very authoritative voice, and told us that we should go to bed, and that he would let our teacher know what we were doing. To our surprise, he was more drunk than we were, and he didn’t find the hidden bottles. We went to bed, wondering what explanations we were gonna give the teacher. We found nothing good enough to get us out of trouble. I fell asleep and dreamed about THE PERFECT SOLUTION. Everything was gonna be OK, I was going to become the heroine of that day! Unfortunately, when I woke up, I forgot what the ULTIMATE EXCUSE that I’d dreamed about the entire night! My classmates tried to help me remember it. All for nothing. We were going to get our punishment (no more parties, no more trips, grounded till you’re 30!!!). But the cop, probably because he was too drunk, didn’t go tell the teacher about us. So we got off easy. I still laugh remembering that!

If you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be? Cheezburgers?
Cheezburgers with plenty of cheese and French fries.

If you could create a new feature for Cheezburger members to use on our sites what would it be, and why do we need it?
Private messages! I’d love to send private messages, as I’m not comfortable with posting something personal that can be seen by everyone.

What else do you like to do when you’re not on the Internet?
I love reading, spending time with my friends. Friends are very important to me. I love listening to good music, no matter what the genre might be. I love watching interior decoration TV shows, and old (and not only) sitcoms. I have a passion for cacti and succulent plants. I like going to the flea market and antique fairs.

Where do you often find inspiration for your lols?
Usually, from my cats, (especially Frodo, who was for me the ultimate LOLcat), looking at the pictures you post, looking at the pictures posted by my Cheez friends.

Do you have any favorite vacation spots? Is there somewhere you’ve never been that you’d like to go?
I love going to the seaside. I love laying on the hot sand, and taking long walks on the beach. I really want to see New York City, I think it’s fabulous. I love skyscrapers, especially Art Deco ones.

If you had a million dollars, what would you do with it?
Oh, that’s an easy question. I’d move to New York.

Do you have any animal companions, or have you had any in the past? What is special about them?
I’ve had pets ever since I was born! My family is crazy about animals. We’ve had cats, and also dogs, canaries, parrots, hamsters, mice, even a bat. When I was little I had a pet bumblebee. But cats have a special place in our family.  The first was my tomcat Mishu, who used to share my cradle when I was a baby, and was terrified of mice. Betty, a beautiful black and white girl, very feisty, smart and picky, brave like a lioness. Tom, a sweet little love bug, the clumsiest cat you can imagine. He discovered that flushing the toilet is a lot of fun. Then, there was Gipsy, my black panther, the smartest cat I ever had. When mom would badmouth her sometimes, my dad would say “Stop talking like that about that cat, she gets it!” And she did! I could write a book about her, maybe I will. And the love of my life, Frodo, so big and awesome, fat, smart, gorgeous and super affectionate, who, as stated before, is the reason why I discovered the wonderful Cheezburger community. I lost him 2 years ago, and miss him every day. At the moment, I have 4 cats, all rescued off the street, each with their own personality: Lexi, a fiesty Calico, a sweet tabby boy Moty, my little wild black beauty Blackie Midnight, and the most recent addition to the family, Sasha Wolfie, my little werewolf-like kitten, a major popcorn lover.


Teh others

Any favorite authors, genres or books? What are you reading right now? Favorite authors?
Such a tough question. Here are a few names: Jane Austen, Mark Twain, Charles Dickens, Jack Kerouac, Edith Wharton, Emile Zola, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ray Bradbury, Harper Lee, JRR Tolkien. When it rains, I like reading Agatha Christie. I like reading biographies and autobiographies. At the moment I’m reading Sarah Orne Jewet-A White Heron and other stories.

Do you have a favorite joke, story or lol that showcases your self proclaimed strange sense of humor?
About my quirky sense of humor. I wrote that to warn people, not to show off :) I sometimes crack weird jokes, not always understood by anyone. Want examples? I`ll choose a few of my lols.

We’re all addicted to the Internet, what are some of your other favorite Interwebz haunts?
Facebook, of course. I have wonderful facebook friends. Is another place to laugh and have fun, but most important of all, we fight against animal cruelty.

Thanks for the lovely interview Lexi05! Have a great weekend everyone, don’t think about Monday.

A Letter From Ben to the Community about the New Cheezburger App

Cheetos Twitter

Hi Cheezburgers,

Today is a huge day at Cheezburger. We’re releasing a 100% new Cheezburger iOS app (download here). We built it because life is funny. So the app lets you follow the fun and remix your funny moments.

This new app is about you, your sense of humor and your friends. This app highlights your remixes, your contributions to the community and your profiles. This app, more than anything I have built at Cheezburger, reflects my dreams and wishes for our community. All the mistakes I’ve made, all the great things we’ve done, it was in pursuit of what we’ve put into this app, and what we’ll continue to put into it.

Here are some of those hopes and dreams:

  • Follow any site and your friends!
    Make your own stream of content based on who you follow and see them faster than ever. You can also discover other funny profiles and customize your feed. (There’s no need to accept friend requests. Just follow.)
  • Remix any image.
    You can also remix any image or GIF you see. Add your own pics, captions, and stickers, right in the app. The phone is an amazing tool for images and GIFs.
  • Save your content.
    Your creations are yours to do whatever you want. We’ll save them to your phone so you can use them in your favorite apps. It’s also saved to your profile, so we can store endless amounts of your memes in the cloud.
  • Voting and see it featured.
    We’re overjoyed to showcase the ability for you to vote your favorite content. The Community is front-and-center and showcases your voted favorites.

Phones have become the centerpiece of our digital lives where we capture our moments and communicate with friends. Cheezburger is a company that believes that you should have a community that shares your sense of humor so you can make the world around you happy for a few moments everyday.

Download the Cheezburger iOS app now. Android version is being worked on. Download now and we’ll upgrade you automagically.

The work on this app is far from over. For example: We’ve left out commenting and direct messages. (They will continue to work on Cheezburger.com.) We plan to reimagine them to make it more fun and creative. We know that we’ll need to keep making our meme building tools easier. We want better support for videos. Etc. Etc. The list is very long. But this is a massive beginning.

If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know in the comments!


Ben Huh
Founder, Cheezburger


Q: When will the Android version be available?

A: We don’t have a date yet. We’re estimating around the New Year. We’ll upgrade you automagically when the new Android app is out. We’re actively working on it now. If you don’t have our Android app, please download the current one and we’ll upgrade you automatically.

Q: Do I still need to accept friend requests in the app?

A: NOPE! Building your community is easier now as you can follow anyone without the need to accept friend requests. People can still send friend requests via the Cheezburger.com website.

Q: Is there a way to comment or message each other?

A: Commenting and messaging is not yet in the app. We’re working on a way of communication that should be spam-resistant and super creative.

Q: This is different than your websites. Why can’t I do the same thing there?

A: Yes. We built many features from scratch for the mobile apps, and we’ll be updating the websites in the future. We intend to release new features on mobile first, from here on out. Our philosophy is for our websites to work in tandem with our apps.

Q: I don’t have a smartphone.

A: That’s OK, the websites will still work just fine.

Q: I love turtles.

A: So do we. So do we.

Hi Burgers,

I don’t know how this happened, but it doesn’t really matter. For some reason #CatVideoGames has been trending on Twitter this morning.

For example:


The Internet is a magical place. Any ideas for a cat video game?

300 Million Mile Gif-Together

Hi Burgers,

The Philae Lander traveled 300 million miles, successfully landed on a comet, bounced a few kilometers across its surface and came to rest in a shadow underneath a cliff where it couldn’t gather enough sunlight to stay powered. It then sent this tweet that actually made me a little sad.

I haven’t felt this attached to a piece of technology since the Brave Little Toaster.

Well said BLT! The ESA hopes to be able to revive the Lander next year when the comet passes closer to the sun.

What’s new with you all today?

Makin’ popcorn…but just one, I’m on a diet


Baby’s first step


Wall-E is such a sweet guy

Yo ‘sup?


Just wonderin’ the same about you Mamadub!
