In the ongoing battle of cat vs. dog, we'd like to name cats as the fluffy mascot of nerd culture.

In celebration of National Cat Day [2], take a look at the geekiest cats of pop culture.

As a warlock punished to live 100 years as a black cat, Salem on Sabrina, the Teenage Witch spends his days providing cheeky zingers and eye roll-inducing puns to the trio of witches he counts as roommates.

Companion to villainous genius Dr. Evil, it's safe to say the hairless Mr. Bigglesworth shares his master's sinisterly geeky aptitude.

Ewok Cat

Ewoks are arguably the cutest critters of the Star Wars universe, so naturally a cat dressed as an Ewok [11] is exponentially adorable.
