The Morning GIF: Just kitten

This strobing cat GIF unites Tumblr artist Ozneo with the creatures running the Internet.

Here at the Daily Dot, we swap GIF images with each other every morning. Now we’re looping you in. In the Morning GIF, we feature a popular—or just plain cool—GIF we found on Reddit, Canvas, or elsewhere on the Internet.

Cats. Drugs. Rock and roll. This GIF has them all.

When you take cats (of which, we remind you, the Internet is composed), put them together with Bucharest artist Matei Apostolescu, and add a dash of Tumblr GIF artist extraordinaire Ozneo, you have something too awesome to be contained.

It all started with this gorgeous, insanely detailed image called “Strange Summer Cat,” which Apostolescu posted on his website. True to the artist’s style, it’s an intriguing blend of the mechanical and the organic, with a mandala-like quality. Ozneo, an artist who rarely remixes others, turned it into a positive/negative strobing GIF guaranteed to blow the most mundane of minds. As the mystically significant 600 Tumblr notes attest, it’s just the thing to contemplate while the post-yoga mushrooms kick in.
