We won’t ever tell your boss just how much of your workday is devoted to watching cat videos on the Internet.
Anyway, we embrace the fact that the Internet was basically invented for the sole purpose of watching animals do adorable, hilarious and all-around awesome things.
That’s why we’re looking to honor the best viral video as part of our first-ever PEOPLE Pets Awards, which will celebrate the finest and furriest in an upcoming issue of PEOPLE. We’ve tirelessly culled through the world of box-loving cats and dogs who will do anything for a treat when the cameras are rolling. (Research, right?)
We’ve picked our five favorites below, and now we need your help choosing a winner!
