In a recent episode of PBS Idea Channel, host Mike Rugnetta examines the relationship between the internet and cats with the help of memes and animated GIFs, and even goes so far as to ask “Is the Internet Cats?”
I think we can all agree that the Internet has an intense, borderline obsessive, appreciation for cats. With felines as its spirit animal, the internet can even seem cat-like in personality. Where does all this kitteh love come from? Humans made the internet, and humans have had an affinity for cats for centuries. But can we make the jump from “the internet loves cats” to “the internet IS cats”?
