Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

It's Monday, and, like Garfield, you hate Mondays. Also like Garfield, the only thing that can cheer you up on a Monday is either lasagna or a good laugh at the misfortune of others. We can't give you any lasagna, but we can give you the second thing, in the form of a six-second video featuring a tiny kitten that miscalculates the distance between the table it's standing on and a nearby railing.

Poor little guy. Poor, poor, hilarious little guy. But is that high-pitched noise at the end the sound of the camera-person laughing or the kitten's abbreviated cry of protest? The only way to know for sure is to watch it again. And probably again and again. Thank you, tiny kitten. Thank you for the lulz.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
