Happy cat is happy coworker?
November 15, 2011 11:39 AM   Subscribe

My friend and coworker is having a super shitty week. I want to send her a happy little picture or something like that - maybe a happy lolcat? - to bring a small bit of joy to her day. Suggestions?

Aled Lewis makes me laugh. He does cats (that entire set is fun).

I loved this Marcel the Shell short today (and the original too).

Different spin, but sometimes my friends and I send around "animal pics that commiserate with shitty/stressful weeks."

For example:

NOPE
CALM THE FUCK DOWN
FIGHT THE POWER
FUCK YOU I'M AN ANTEATER

YMMV with your friend's sense of humor.

Cat News always cheers me up, too. "Today in our feature report, other cats: what's their deal?"

And if your friend hasn't seen Louis vs. Rick before, it's pretty hilarious. No pictures though.

Clips of babies laughing never fail to cheer me up: here are five on one page, but youtube has squillions.

Well, this isn't a cat thing, but this picture makes me giggle every time I see it.

This video of a Mariachi band serenading a happy Beluga whale gets me every time.

That mariachi band/beluga video is a total winner IMHO.

Here's a picture of Morgan Freeman with a kitten on his head. Here's a picture of a young Steve Martin with a kitten. Here's a video of an adorable dog making adorable noises and being silly.

I am an awful, awful person because I laugh at Sad Etsy Dogs.

That said, this is one of my favourite things on the internets, perhaps because I, too, have an eeeeeevil cat and an utterly idiotic dog.

The two happiest pictures I know.

Squee!
If that doesn't work, try Poof!

Hope these help!

I don't know why, but this GIF of cookie monster being surprised with a birthday cake makes me smile even when I'm having a crappy day :)

Since it's work, this pic of a Corgi Boss comes to mind (made the rounds a while back, I think even indirectly on Mefi already). And this Corgi's expression always makes me giggle, it's so very...dog.

These are all great! Epic Box is amusing and absurd, but not a cat.

"Yes, this is dog" kills me every time.

Another fun one when you're irritated at work is "edit your face."
