http://quizilla.com/users/laur/quizzes/Which%20famous%20feline%20are%20you%3F/
or
http://xrl.us/catquiz
If you didn't have much difficulty deciding the second was "better", you'll want to know about the Metamark Shorten™ Service at http://metamark.net/.

Some related tools are also available, including a pair of "bookmarklets" (one in a popup window, the other not), and a Services menu item for Mac OS X.
