100-Year-Old Vintage Cat Memes

Believe it or not but it turns out the very first cat memes were created over 100 years ago, thanks to a photographer named Harry Whittier Frees. Harry Whittier Frees dressed up cats and posed them with props, just the way one would photograph a human. He basically did what people do today before it was cool. 

Frees was born in 1879, Reading, Pennsylvania. In an interview with LIFE magazine, it was told he took his first "lolcat" photo completely by accident! The year was 1906 when his family gathered for dinner and brought a paper hat. They passed around the hat from head to head until it was placed on the head of Frees' cat. At that moment he took a photo of a cat with a hat. The source mentions how admired the shot was so he began to take more photos of cats in outfits and props. 

These photographs were taken in the early 1900s with a camera speed of 1/5th a second. As as we all know, cats (especially kittens) move constantly. Especially when you're trying to take a picture of them! So you can imagine how difficult it must have been and reportedly, two-thirds of the negatives had to discarded due to their blurriness. 

Honestly, it just makes the following images that much more impressive! Feast your eyes on the world's earliest cat memes:

Cats are different to kittens. Cats are cold-hearted, despise their humans, and are vindictive for no reason at all. Kittens, on the other hand, are normal baby creatures: they are cute, playful, friendly, and will generally help out other creatures that need help. Poor baby human, he's being taken to the vet and he doesn't even know it. Good thing this courageous kitty has warned him of the impending dangers that await him. Thanks kitty. If you want to see some more kitties and cats being cute or funny, we don't blame you.

Is there anything more cute than a cat on the prowl, when it's prey is you? Cats think they are the smoothest hunters, unseen when they hide in the most obvious of places, stealthy when they creep up behind you, and deadly when they 'catch' you and pretend to bite your ankles. The smaller the cat, the cuter it gets. Awww, you think you could actually hunt me? How adorable! If you think this is funny, wait till you see this collection of the cutest and funniest cats you'll ever see. You will melt.

Cats are way smarter than we like to admit. I mean, the Egyptians (and just about all the other ancient cultures too) worshiped cats as gods, so that's gotta be hinting something, right? Honestly, sometimes I get the feeling that cats are plotting something. All of them. Together. And when I turn around to catch them, they all scatter away and look innocent. But this meme is a clue. If it's smart enough to recognize these bags, then it's gotta know more than that... Until we know for sure, continue to look at cat memes and cute cat pictures like normal. They're always watching.
