Why do cats run the internet? A scientific explanation →

So, this is why cats are insanely popular on the internet »

Cats may not be man’s best friend, but they’re arguably something even better: man’s key to instant Internet pageviews. […] The most compelling explanation for our interest in cats, however, may be the most simple: we’re in awe of them. Nagelschneider told me that we’re inclined to watch cats climbing trees or walking upside down on walls because we wish we could do so ourselves—or, in her words, “When we are watching these videos, they just blow our minds.” To whatever extent that’s true, it’s certainly worth a click.
