Cat memes are such an important and ingrained part of the internet that I think there are more different types of them than there are breeds of cats (so long as you define them by what color they are and not by pedigree). From classic LOLcats to absurd post-ironic pictures, our feline friends have been used in just about every way possible in the name of advancing internet humor.
You might think that we would be starting to run out of ideas on the cat meme innovation front. That couldn’t be further from the truth, as the funny just keeps on flowing as smoothly as it ever has. While styles of memes fall in and out of fashion, the humor and laughter that cats bring to our lives are eternal. It really is no surprise that the internet keeps returning to them in new ways that are bound to capture our attention.
