moarcats

example

cat gifs on demand for any occasion or project. GET any resource for moar cats. No 5xx or 4xx's here: just cat gifs.

Use it anywhere you need a cat gif! For example

<img src='http://edgecats.net/first' alt='a random cat gif!'/>

or something like this to click for new cat gifs

  
    <div id="catcontainer" onclick="moarcats();">
      <img src="http://edgecats.net" alt="random cat"/>
    </div>

    <script type="text/javascript">
      function moarcats() {
        var catcontainer = document.getElementById("catcontainer");
        catcontainer.innerHTML = '<img src="http://edgecats.net" alt="random cat"/>';
        return false;
      }
    </script>
  

Also allows cross origin requests.

automagically get moar cats!

wait, first here's a cat!

example

try /works for autorotating fullscreen gifs every 20s!

it may not work on your browser, but you can try /auto!

  • every 60s is a new cat
  • click the image to immediately get moar cats
  • the X-cat-link header has a direct link to the current random cat

or got to /auto/full for all dem cats in full screen!

omg /netcat!!

try /netcat out!

  • drag him around!
  • type moar cats for an adorable cat!

Awesome right? Fuck yeah here's another cat

example

need a random link generator?

you can haz! try /random

want to see a shitton of cats OMG YES PLEASE!!!??!?

well here's one right now!

example

  • /all for a list of all cat gifs
  • /all/count for a count of all cat gifs
  • /all/show to show all cat gifs. May be slow!

edgecats.net/cats/ stores static cacheable cats, like this motherfucker right here

example

oh noes it needs a CDN

After getting hit by social networks bandwidth became prohibitive, so enter a CDN from the nice folks at EdgeCast. During high traffic periods, you may find your self redirected to /meow,which serves a cacheable image from /cats.
