Many YouTube cats quickly became famous thanks to peoples' love for the Internet and for cats. To add to the mix of viral cat videos, animator Richard Swarbrick re-imagined the most famous cats and their viral videos into a watercolor-themed short. The artsy video, entitled 'The Cats of YouTube,' features watercolor renderings of Maru, Grumpy Cat and Snoopy, to name a few.

The video is set to Empathy Test's soothing song 'Kirrilee.' While the music plays you can see cats like Maru, the 200 million-viewed cat who usual gets stuck in boxes and Nala, an adorable cross-eyed cat that always looks like she is in shock, in a painted form.

Though the felines are known to be quirky and comical to watch, Richard manages to make them soothingly intriguing to watch and majestic-looking.
