Unless you’ve been living under a proverbial rock, you’re probably familiar with the ever-popular obsession with cats on the ‘net. No matter what your personal preference is on the old-as-time cats & dogs debate, everyone loves a good cat meme. But why, Internet? Why? We’re here to tell you.
1. Every team needs a mascot.
2. Cats are A-Holes
Speaking of hyenas, they’re only jerks in the cartoon world. But cats? Cats are intentionally rude no matter where you see them. So unless the joke’s on you, you’ll always enjoy a good ol’ giggle at cat-aliation.
3. Cats Have all the Feels
Cats, like humans, can show their emotions in their body language and facial expressions. How else can you communicate sarcasm via text until they invent a font for it?
4. Cats are Talented.
They can sing. They dance. They whirl around on Roombas with the greatest of ease (Have you ever tried it? It’s harder than it looks!).
We all love to share our accomplishments on social media: so you’re baby can speak 12 languages? Cool. Your toddler composed a masterpiece before she could walk? Great. But your cat is a magician? Be still my heart.
5. Cats Make the Most of What They’ve Got.
Sometimes after a long, hard week of the 9-to-5 grind, or a particularly disappointing COD loss, you just need a win. If that win is in the form of a four-legged 3rd party pulling off a great feat, so be it. You have to take pleasure in the small things in life, and cats are wizards at knowing how to do just that. After a long day of lounging, napping, eating and using the litter box, they don’t need fancy toys or gadgets to get the party started.
