Cats do the darnedest things. And their human friends often catch those antics on film. Some even make it big on the internet, where the viral cat video is king — think "Kitten in a Hamster Ball" and "Keyboard Cat." The Humane Society of Chittenden County's planet cat: Vermont's first acatemy awards show showcases the best locally made kitty videos. Tim Kavanagh and Kerrin Jeromin will emcee the event, which was inspired by a similar festival in Oakland, Calif. Audience members cast votes for their favorites and then head to lunch at McGillicuddy's Irish Ale House. Meow!
Planet Cat: Vermont's First Acatemy Awards Show: Sunday, April 6, 10 a.m. to noon, at Majestic 10 Cinemas in Williston. $10; proceeds benefit the Humane Society of Chittenden County. For more information, visit chittendenhumane.org.
