NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Forget Beatlemania, “Meowmania” is now sweeping the nation.

Cats are the undisputed kings of viral Internet videos, and designer Jacqueline Steck is keeping the feline fandom going with her web application, Meowmania.

Each time you click on the screen at meowmania.jqln.org, you’re hit with a cute, meowing kitty until the screen completely fills with pussies.

Steck admits there’s not much to the application other than a guaranteed immediate smile from cat lovers.

She says, “People are endlessly amused and entertained by the site, and cats in general. I look at cats everyday. It doesn’t get old. It’s not high culture. It immediately just grabs us and makes us laugh or smile.”

Fans of the site have uploaded videos of their own kitties reacting to the cat application on YouTube. The real life cats are usually confused or curious and begin searching for the phantom friend that’s meowing up a storm.
