By Kelli Harmon

National Kitten Day is July 10, and what better way to celebrate than with a bunch of adorable kitten videos? Well, spending time with actual kittens might be better, but we can help with that too. (Hint: Scroll to the end.)

Each year, Best Friends helps countless kittens across the country through adoption, rescue efforts, fostering and medical services, and that means that we get to meet a whole lot of adorable little furry faces. So, we’re featuring a few of our favorite videos of them. Some are silly, some are cute. But they’re all a reminder that kittens really do make life more fun.

Start the day with a relaxing 20-second meditation of calming music, plus kittens and everything else will be a little bit better. Really, every day should start this way.

When baby Ollie goes to the baby mat, so does Bruce the cat. Together, under the close supervision of their mom, Alex, they are figuring out how to play together. Ollie is seven months old and Bruce is just a month older. And while Bruce is growing up much faster than his favorite little human, the two just get each other.

97 kittens, an RV and one lifesaving mission

Perhaps the only thing better than an RV filled with nearly 100 kittens, is knowing how they got on the RV in the first place. This wasn’t a joyride. It was a ride to save their lives.
