That cats “rule the Internet” is an undisputed truism. Internet users have created and viewed millions of images and videos of cats, delighting in media that dwell on the cat’s many paradoxes: its independence and powerlessness, its curiosity and indifference, its human qualities and sheer inscrutability.
