  4. Downton Abbey + Cats = Downton Tabbies [Video]

    What is a weekend?

    We've featured other mashups of Downton Abbey and cats before and of course they were delightful.  There's even a Downton Tabby book.  But this video of cats modeled after the Downton Abbey opening credits is pretty much the best thing ever, not in the least because it was made for the good cause of getting these cats adopted from no-kill animal rescue Pets Alive!
