Before massive access to the world wide web and the ability to capture pretty much any moment in a still or video with lightning speed, the cat was, for the most part, known only to its human(s) and those so intimately acquainted with said human(s) that they would be in the cat’s home while the cat was free to roam about (i.e., not during a party). The internet has given the cat a long-overdue place atop the pantheon of creatures to adore. It is their virtual parade and glamour walk in the cat park.
Thanks to Caturdays and the like, even card-carrying cat-haters will have to admit that they are incredibly entertaining and cuddly-wuddly whiskertons! Yes they are! Yes they are!
