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:

Pets Who Realized They're At The Vet (Memes + Pics)

These poor animals don't like going to the vet, just as much as you don't like going to the dentist. But they have a key rule which seems to help them through the traumatic event...  if you don't see them, they don't see you. 

It's been proven to work for cats and dogs for many, many years. And it's so easy to do it! First step, when you finally get out of that carrier, survey the area and find possibly hide-out. 

Examples of good hide-outs: the sink, in folder holder, behind items, inside a hole of some sort. The hole option is the best option but not always available. 

Examples of bad hiding spots: sitting in a corner with your face towards the wall, sitting in an open space with your face against the floor. 

However, sometimes, that's just the way it's gotta be!

Nineteen Cats Purrfecting Their Best Stink Eye

Cats are notorious for giving the best (and most often) exaggerated looks to us humans. 

They can give us just one look and we know exactly (or wish we knew) exactly what they are thinking. Like when you sneeze and they look at you with such disgust as if you sneezed all over them, or if you laugh they look at you like you laughed too hard and need to turn it down a notch to let them relax! 

Well, whatever the expression nothing compares to that stink eye! You know the ones we are talking about! But regardless we still find them hella cute and awwdorable (even those adorable cat and kitten gifs) and just love everything about them right down to the funny cat stories

Our latest "How to Cat" lesson is here! And never fear, we have the purrfessionals to guide us through this one! 

It's crucial to study up so you know just how to train your human! 

In this lesson, we'll study how to activate and use your different "levels of cuteness" to your advantage. 

Whether you "accidentally" knocked over the vase, or just took a little nibble from their sandwich, or even when you oh so gently pushed the coffee cup to the floor because you weren't sure it would break or not... anyways... all those things can be easily forgotten when you follow these few steps!
