The Internet loves cats, so it was no surprise to see the ever-so-trippy Nyan Cat become an instant Web hit. Now, riding on the rainbow of its meme success, you can get a custom Nyan-inspired progress bar for your Windows 7 PC.

The little app created by Ben Stone is appropriately known as the Nyan Cat Progress Bar. The program makes light of waiting times and sees the lovable Pop-Tart cat dance along your desktop each and every time you transfer a file. The cool download is a modification of one of Ben's earlier programs, called Instant Elevator Music.

The Instant Elevator Music program automatically plays a music file when a user is transferring a file or loading something. So as you may have guessed, this new mod sees the now Web-famous cat dance along the progress bar with the Nyan Cat music playing as the process carries out.
