The Catroulette Site Sifts Through Felines Who Need Homes

Inspired by the popular website Chatroulette comes the adorable cat adoption Catroulette website. The site uses a similar interface as the Chatroulette site, but instead of randomly getting paired up with naked lonely people, this site has random videos of cats who need to be adopted.

The site allows for users to skip over videos of cute and cuddly cats that need a good home. You have the choice to either click the "Next" button and go on to the next cat, or choose the "Adopt" button and make plans to start owning a cat. The only sad part about this creative cat adoption site is that below each cat video, you see the total number of times people have skipped over that particular cat. Although it is a clever way to induce empathy, it is still sad.
