21 Photos That Show Why the Internet Is So Obsessed With Cats
Dog may be man's best friend, but cat is the internet's.
America loves its cats. According to the American Veterinary Medical Association, there are more felines in U.S. households than any other type of pet—to the tune of 74 million! But such widespread love isn’t limited to our IRL world. It’s all over the internet, too.
That’s why Lolcats is a cemented cultural touchstone, why Grumpy Cat (or, rather, her owner) is a millionaire, and why you can’t open Twitter or Reddit without seeing some sort of cat meme. Sure, dog may be man’s best friend. But cat is the internet’s—and here’s the photographic evidence to prove it.
