In what is an important addition to the Cute Animals Watching Television canon, a pair of kittens transfixed by a women's tennis match has made its way to YouTube.
The kittens, hanging out on a scratching post, appear to be hanging on every shot in the match, punctuated by what sound like no. 1-ranked Victoria Azarenka's signature shrieks.

That video has been viewed more than 4.5 million times on YouTube:
