These cats had a better year than you. Deal with it.

1. Lil BUB, the CEO

2. Tara, the Hero Cat

Four-year-old Jeremy Triantafilo was riding his tricycle in the front yard when he was attacked by a neighbor's dog. Tara, the family cat, became a hero when she leapt into action and went after the dog, possibly saving the child's life.

3. Nala, the most popular cat on Instagram

Nala is a Los Angeles-based cat who is the most popular feline on Instagram. She has 1.7 MILLION followers, which means she beats out celebrity cats Lil BUB and Grumpy Cat.

4. Rum Tum Tugger, the Rapping Cat

Fans of Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical, Cats, know that Rum Tum Tugger is supposed to be the Rock & Roll cat. The sexy, Mick Jagger of Cats. (Yes, we know how weird that sounds.) But Sir Webber recently shocked the world when he revealed that he's updating the musical and turning Rum Tum Tugger into the bad cat of hip-hop. Yay?

5. Zarathustra, the Artsy Cat

Artist Svetlana Petrova delighted the Internet when she started inserting her fat cat, Zarathustra, into famous works of art. Petrova says her cat can be finicky when it comes to photo shoots, so she sometimes has to wait months before she can create her next piece.

8. Meredith Grey and Olivia Benson

9. Hello Kitty

This year, Hello Kitty's 40th Birthday was celebrated with a three day "Kitty Con" in Los Angeles. There's also a new exhibition about her at the Japanese American National Museum. Oh, yeah, and we learned that she's not really a cat. Sanrio, the company who created the character, firmly states that she is a little British girl... with whiskers.

10. Grumpy Cat

Grumpy Cat is having the best year ever, as usual. Aubrey Plaza voiced the famous cat in Lifetime's Grumpy Cat's Worst Christmas Ever. Who cares that the movie got horrible reviews? Grumpy Cat and her owner are purring all the way to the bank.
