So, what do you think? Do these celebs love our cats as we do?
It is obvious that fame and money don't make anyone immune to cats... We're pretty convinced there's a physics rule that says cats with the Internet equals comedy times two.
That's all there is to it. You photograph a kitty in a funny situation — it doesn't matter if it's scrawny, thick, fluffy, or drowsy — post the photo to social media, and voila, you've upset the online world's status quo.
And we love it!
