LOL cats bump Zillow from top of Seattle startup list

Pet Holdings — the parent company of cute kitties site icanhazcheeseburger.com — bumped Zillow off the top of the Seattle Startup Index maintained by entrepreneur Marcelo Calbucci.

Eleven new companies were added to the list of Web-oriented ventures, which now totals 345 companies in the greater Seattle area.

Calbucci said he also removed iLike, which was sold to MySpace, and Others Online, an “audience optimization” company sold to ad venture The Rubicon Project.

Here are the top ten from August:

Pet Holdings

Zillow

BuddyTV

Picnik

CarDomain

Wetpaint

Robot Co-Op

PayScale

SEOmoz

ActiveRain
