If you're a cat owner, you've witnessed your fur farmer do all manner of lovably silly things. You're continually intrigued by the intelligence, invention and sheer gonzo squirreliness of your cat when it's got its goofball phase on. But have you whipped out that smartphone to shoot this playfulness for public consumption? If the answer's no, well, start -- then attend the Internet Cat Video Festival
at 7:30 p.m. Thursday and Friday (July 9 and 10) at the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis (3750 Washington Boulevard; 314-535-4660 or www.camstl.org
). Anyone can watch a cat video online, alone; better to watch cat videos together with others. Shared laughs beat solitary ones any day. On top of all the kitty vids, there's a cat-themed photo booth, a craft table on which to make your own cat ears, face painting, cash bar, and cat adoption opportunities courtesy of the A-1 folks at Tenth Life Cat Rescue. Tickets are $10 to $20.
