All animated Cat GIFs posted on cat-gifs.com are created by our Team from videos found on the Internet: mainly on YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Vimeo, Vine, but also via many other public sources, including important and famous Websites publishing many Cat videos that are believed to belong in the public domain.
Our animated GIFs are mainly created (and cover under fair use) using only 2 to 5 seconds of each video.
We try our best to always give credit to respective video creators, whenever possible. If we make every attempt possible to source the videos, unfortunately this is not always possible and sometimes we cannot find the exact information because, as everybody knows, proper accreditation is very hard and confusing on the Internet: too many Cat videos are posted by websites – anonymously – WiTHOUT any source or credit.
So, when no credit to the original creator can be found, when we don’t know who is the creator of the video, you may find e.g. ► [Video Source: vine.co] or [Video Source: facebook.com] or…nothing 🙁
However, all credited and UNcredited videos remain property of their respective creators or owners and we do NOT claim copyright or ownership of any video because they still belong to the creator of each video.
