CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Who doesn't love browsing the internet for cat videos? Feline fans can mark their calendars for a very unique event set to "paws" in Cincinnati. 

After drawing in tens of thousands of cat video fans from across the United States, the Internet Cat Video Festival will be presented by the Cincinnati Art Museum. 

The presentation, nicknamed #catvidfest, is organized by the Walker Art Center and will celebrate the museum's summer exhibition. 

There will be two hour-long programs of carefully curated cat clips, pleasing to cat fanciers of all ages Friday and Saturday. 

The Internet Cat Video Festival includes approximately 100 cat videos nominated by the public in the categories of comedy, drama, animated, musical, action, vintage, and documentary.

Videos are curated by Will Braden, the creator of Henri Le Chat Noir and recipient of the festival’s first Golden Kitty (People’s Choice) Award. 

The first viewing will be Friday at 9:15 p.m. at Seasongood Pavilion, across from the Cincinnati Art Museum. The second family-friendly viewing will be Saturday at 11 a.m. in the Fath Auditorium inside the museum. 

Cat attire and make-up is encouraged, but masks are prohibited. Real cats are also asked to sit out on this event. 

Both viewings are FREE. 

General admission to the Cincinnati Art Museum is always free. The museum is open Tuesday – Sunday, 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. and is closed Monday.
