A Conversation With Twitter’s Most Talkative Cat

For decades, internet users have turned to cats to provide them some reprieve from social problems and their personal troubles. In the beginning, there was longcat, Caturday, and That Fucking Cat. Then, there were cheezburgers, Maru, keyboard cats, nyan, and so on—the list is endless, and the sheer quantity of shared cat material online suggests that they may have been the engine that launched meme culture out of the orbit of sites like 4chan and onto the general internet.

This is the reality we now live in, in which one can purchase cat meme books at Spencer’s Gifts and easily follow any number of cat accounts on Twitter.
