Utilizing a proprietary algorithm based on each cat’s social media reach and engagement levels across various social platforms, the Friskies 50 compiles the most influential Internet cats every month (out of a total of more than 250 cats) and ranks them in order from 1-50 at The index methodology also takes into account the cat’s presence in traditional news such as recent mentions in print and online articles. While each cat’s ranking is strongly influenced by the number of social channels the cat is engaged on and the level of media coverage they receive, a key factor is also the public’s reception of the content and coverage.


With the Friskies 50, users are able to view how cats rank each month depending on their score from the previous month. Arrows displayed beside each cat’s name indicate upward or downward movement. For example, upward indicators in green show an increase in score and downward indicators in red show a decrease. All data collected is publicly available.
