Grumpy Cat, Oskar the Blind Cat promote 'Cat Summer' music video

The appetite for famous Internet cats is neverending, apparently. And what could be better than a song of the summer, featuring said Internet cats?!

That's what the Friskies crew had in mind, obviously. They just released a music video for the song "Cat Summer," a celebration of the season starring... well, you know!

Two stars of the video, Grumpy Cat and Oskar the Blind Cat, stopped by Bleecker Street Records on Wednesday to pose with fans. They were both chill cats, sleeping mostly, despite the camera flashes and tweens.

Friskies will donate one meal of Friskies Grillers to cat charities nationwide every time the video is watched on YouTube, up to 1 million meals.
